Vincent D’Onofrio's Kingpin will Return

One of the best parts of Daredevil Season One was Vincent D’Onofrio as New York City crime lord Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin. The character had a significantly reduced role in the second season as Punisher and Elektra were brought into the mix. And now that Netflix has put Daredevil on hold to launch Luke Cage (which premieres on September 30th) and Iron Fist, leading into their 2017 superhero team-up event The Defenders, we don’t know if Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin will appear again in Marvel’s Netflix universe. But D’Onofrio seems to know that Kingpin will return, but he’s not saying when it will happen.

Below, watch the Doctor Strange featurette.

Ever since it was announced that Kurt Russell (Escape From New York, The Thing) would be joining the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, fans theorized that the screen legend would be playing Chris Pratt‘s character Peter Quill’s long lost father. At San Diego Comic-Con International 2016, it was confirmed that Russell’s character is, in fact, Star-Lord’s father. But it was also revealed that his name is Ego, which comic book fans will remember not as a human but an ancient and powerful being that takes the form of a living planet. While doing press at the Toronto International Film Festival, Russell explains that Guardians will tell a “very complex story” focusing on family issues.

Someday, someone is going to write a tell-all book exploring the history of Marvel Studios, and it will almost certainly be a compelling read. The company’s rise has been nothing short of astonishing, but the stories emerging from behind-the-scenes have often been bizarre and inexplicable, the result of battles over creative control between several different captains trying to steer the ship in different directions. Specifically, we’re talking about the clashing between Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

A little over a year ago, Feige won this particular war, essentially cutting Perlmutter out of the decision-making process at Marvel Studios. However, the fragments of their years of strife are still apparent and still being talked about. Case in point: Rebecca Hall still isn’t euphoric with what went down on Iron Man 3.

Captain America Civil War Honest Trailer

This week brought Captain America: Civil War to Blu-ray and DVD, which means Marvel’s hit summer blockbuster is ready to get the Honest Trailer treatment.

While the idea of having The Avengers be their own villains seems like a big deal, let’s not forget that these superheroes have fought each other plenty of times before. And as the mockery of Marvel’s latest action extravaganza points out, that’s what happens when most of your villains kinda suck.

Luke Cage doesn’t premiere on Netflix until the end of the month, but Marvel isn’t being shy with the new clips. The first few teases showed off Mike Colter as Power Man himself, with the unbreakable skinned superhero absorbing punishment, dishing out pain, and finding himself in need of some new clothes.

The Defenders

Everyone involved in Avengers: Infinity War has pretty much dashed all hopes of seeing some of Marvel’s television heroes on the big screen in the upcoming epic crossover event film. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Marvel television head Jeph Loeb have both cited off the list of reasons why it probably wouldn’t happen, but that doesn’t mean it won’t.

In a new interview, Infinity War filmmakers the Russo Brothers give fans some hope that Netflix’s The Defenders (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) could still appear. Could we see Marvel’s tv heroes in Infinity War? They also again confirm that Brie Larson will appear in the film as Captain Marvel. Find out what they had to say, after the jump.
