The production of the Daredevil reboot is providing fans with a deeper understanding of Wilson Fisk’s background. The show is set to delve into Kingpin’s origin story and his run for the mayor-ship of New York. While specific plot details remain a secret, Fisk’s significant role in Daredevil: Born Again could have far-reaching effects on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

A new image shared by Reddit user on the Marvel Studios subreddit reveals Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin during filming on the New York set of Disney+’s Daredevil: Born Again. The photo features Fisk in his signature suit and tie, appearing puzzled as he gazes into the distance.

Compared to his last appearance in Hawkeye, Fisk looks notably thinner in the new set photo, reminiscent of his slimmer physique from Netflix’s Daredevil Season 1.

The upcoming series will explore how this iteration of Kingpin differs from his Netflix version. With flashback scenes featuring a young Wilson Fisk and his ascent in New York’s political scene, Daredevil: Born Again will spend a significant portion of its run delving into the villain’s backstory.

While Netflix’s Daredevil Season 1 portrayed Fisk as a powerful figure in Hell’s Kitchen, the 18-episode arc of Born Again provides an opportunity to further develop the complex character. After being shot by Maya Lopez in Hawkeye, Kingpin’s weight loss could be attributed to his recovery process.

Daredevil: Born Again might depict Kingpin’s journey back to power, culminating in his successful bid for New York City’s mayorship. This would set the stage for a climactic confrontation between Fisk and Charlie Cox’s eponymous hero of Hell’s Kitchen.
