'Law & Order' Star Vincent D'Onofrio Joins 'Daredevil' as 'The Kingpin'

Several weeks ago we learned that Boardwalk Empire star Charlie Cox has been cast as the Blind Lawyer himself Matt Murdock better known as Daredevil! Well, today it was announced (via Marvel) that Law & Order: Criminal Intent star Vincent D'Onofrio has been cast as Wilson Fisk better known as The Kingpin.  Last we saw of The Kingpin was in the 2004 Daredevil feature film played by the late Michael Clarke Duncan opposite Ben Affleck.

Jeph Loeb adds:
“We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining 'Marvel’s Daredevil' in such an integral role. Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose cunning and power make him the dangerous equal of our hero."
Spartacus showrunner Steven S. DeKnight has come on as showrunner of Daredevil after Drew Goddard stepped down to focus on The Sinister Six at Sony.

Daredevil is expected to start filming this July with a Summer 2015 release date on Netflix.
