The upcoming finale of Hawkeye has everyone’s eyes on it. Not only will it tie up one of Marvel Studios’ most grounded storylines, but also finally reintroduce Wilson Fisk a.k.a. the Kingpin into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Theoretically, he was already confirmed in the last episode, but Vincent D’Onofrio gets to actually showcase his character in the series. We don’t know how true he’ll stay to his performance in Daredevil, but it’s such an exciting prospect and we only have to wait a few more days.
Luckily, to tie us over, Hailee Steinfeld has offered a tease that her character, Kate Bishop, will come into confrontation with the actor. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she talked about what it’s like to act opposite of D’Onofrio and teases the presence he’ll once again bring to the role, which is quite promising.
It’s a very different experience standing underneath Vincent and hearing him. To be in his presence is really something… I’ve been a fan of his for a very long time. It’s always amazing to be a part of something with people that you really admire. I’m excited to see people watch it unfold.Hailee Steinfeld
We are certainly excited, as many long-time Daredevil fans have been waiting for the character’s grand return. So, not only knowing Kate will confront the character, especially as Steinfeld highlights that “this is somebody that she doesn’t know much about but she’s been warned. She knows everything she needs to know when she hears Clint say ‘this is the guy I’ve been worried about the whole time.’ That right there is enough for her to need to come to her senses and figure out how to handle the situation” So, it’ll be interesting to see just how this turns out.
