Hawkeye reintroduced Vincent D’Onofrio‘s take on Wilson Fisk into the Marvel Cinematic universe. His return was met with a lot of praise and some uncertainty about what the future might have in store for the character, especially given the open ending of his fate at the hands of Echo. Well, it seems that D’Onofrio currently does not have a contract with Marvel Studios currently, as revealed in an interview with The Sarah O’Connell Program. He states that
I’ve been through this before with Daredevil. It’s all been very clear to them that I really want to play this part, keep playing. You know, I just hope that continues. I just started having fun with it.Vincent D’Onofrio
Of course, there is the chance he’s not allowed to give away if he has a contract or not given how the Disney+ series ended. It wouldn’t be too surprising that Kevin Feige and his team want to ensure that the fake-out wasn’t given away so easily, but D’Onofrio is certainly hoping to make a return, especially in the already confirmed Spider-Man 4.
All of them. I mean, it’s obvious that Punisher, Daredevil, and Spider-Man are the ones that my character is tied to in the comic books. But there’s plenty of room for others, I can just only hope that that happens. But I mean, Spider-Man definitely. I think that would be really really fun.Vincent D’Onofrio
A return in the fourth entry of Spider-Man would make a lot of sense after No Way Home ended on him returning to his roots. It also would work as a way to still connect to the Marvel Cinematic Universe without other heroes taking over his film. Daredevil may also become a supporting player as they take on Kingpin, whose empire may have truly only started after the events of Hawkeye. Here’s hoping we’ll find out sooner rather than later.
