Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye season finale is expected to bring the year to a close with an MCU-themed climax. Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova was fully delivered in the penultimate episode, giving Kingpin fans hope. As a reason, the show’s finale hype is skyrocketing quickly.
As speculation swirled about the possibility of former Netflix star Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin becoming MCU canon, he’s been tease-teasing fans ever since. When the show started streaming, this only grew in volume and intensity. This was particularly the case in Episode 3, when Maya Lopez’s “uncle” appeared on-screen.
When you consider the hints dropped by D’Onofrio on his social media accounts, it was only a matter of time before the Kingpin of Crime made an appearance in this story. Finally, the train to Fisk Station was on its way. And those teases turned into full-blown mayhem among the fan base in the final moments of Episode 5.
The final episode of Hawkeye has received a 30-second promo from Marvel Studios. Kingpin’s new footage aired is titled “The Boss.”
The Kingpin’s new footage included a shot of Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk/Kingpin walking near the Tracksuit Mafia. The newcomer to the MCU appears to be wearing a pair of his classic comic-accurate purple pants, and his cane is prominently displayed in the shot.
Many fans had hoped that Kingpin, played by Vincent D’Onofrio, would return after the show’s cancellation in 2018. Despite D’Onofrio’s hopes that he’d return to the role. This return set social media on fire as he officially entered the MCU. That epic finale to Episode 5 suggests that Hawkeye’s final episode will see the iconic villain unleashed in Clint Barton and Kate Bishop’s lives.
Fisk is shown in front of the Tracksuit Mafia as they plot to take out the show’s master archers once and for all in this brief clip. Marvel Studios appears ready to give the fandom the best Kingpin iteration possible. With him even brandishing the comic-accurate baton that continues to elude him in three seasons of Daredevil.
Hawkeye’s sixth episode will see the return of a massive villain who has connections with Eleanor Bishop and Jack Duquesne. Clint, Kate, and Yelena will have their work cut out for them as long as they can keep the Kingpin at bay. Regardless of what happens. The final episode of Hawkeye will air on Disney+ on December 22, 2021.
