With actors from the Marvel exhibits on Netflix beginning to seem in present initiatives set within the MCU, it is solely pure for the writers to get extra concerned as effectively. Per The Illuminerdi, Ken Kristensen and Dara Resnik have been tapped to affix the author’s room for Echo, the upcoming sequence that serves as a by-product sequence for Alaqua Cox following her debut in Hawkeye. Previously, Kristensen wrote three episodes of The Punisher whereas Resnik penned two episodes of Daredevil‘s closing season.
Marion Dayre (Better Call Saul) can be reportedly on board because the lead author with others on the workforce together with Shoshannah Stern (Supernatural, This Close) and Bobby Wilson (Rutherford Falls, Reservation Dogs). Alaqua Cox stars within the lead position and given her relationship with Wilson Fisk, who’s nonetheless very probably alive following an ambiguous destiny in Hawkeye, it is possible Vincent D’Onofrio shall be starring as effectively.
Of course, D’Onofrio’s Kingpin was first seen within the Marvel exhibits on Netflix, so it feels acceptable to have Daredevil and The Punisher writers concerned with Echo. There had been some debate over whether or not these Netflix exhibits had been thought of canonical with the MCU. The arrival of Kingpin in Hawkeye appeared to make the connection way more clear, even when there are some questions in regards to the supervillain’s enhanced energy.
It’s been some time since we have seen Kingpin, and in Hawkeye, it looks like he is way more highly effective. There could also be sure variations corresponding to this, besides, D’Onofrio feels that this Kingpin is identical model of the character we first met in Daredevil. Not the entire dots have but been related to bridge the hole, however so far as the actor is anxious, this is not a variant, however somebody who’s been by means of the very same experiences we noticed within the Netflix exhibits.
“I think the Blip has happened, and I think his Kingdom took a bit of a hit, and he’s trying to get his city back. That’s how I played him, and I think that was the general idea,” D’Onofrio previously said, per TVLine. “Obviously, in the show, he’s physically stronger and can take more physical abuse. But emotionally, and as far as the history that was discussed about what’s been going on, was done with connecting as many dots from Daredevil to Hawkeye as possible. There are obviously things that we can’t connect — for instance, he’s stronger — but as far as how I played him and the history that I carry myself from and into Hawkeye, he is the same guy.”
He added, “The thing about Wilson Fisk is that people are always suspect to what he’s actually thinking, and that’s what’s cool about it. There’s a way to play that character, where you just don’t know if he’s really feeling anything but his own narcissism, and so his heart may be in it. Maybe it is, maybe it’s not. There are many facets to the character that could be explored, so I only can hope that we continue.”
