The upcoming Netflix comic adaptation “Daredevil” has added a new cast member by way of Vincent D’Onofrio. Reportedly he will play the foe for the titular character Matt Murdock.

The plot follows lawyer-by-day Murdock uses his heightened senses from being blinded as a young boy to fight crime at night on the streets of Hell’s Kitchen as Daredevil. 

D’Onofrio will play Wilson Fisk, an antagonist also known as “The Kingpin.” The character was described in the press release as “a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen will bring him into conflict with Murdock.” 

“The Kingpin” was famously played by Michael Clarke Duncan in the 2003 film adaptation starring Ben Affleck.

D’Onofrio will star opposite the “Boardwalk Empire” alum (and my secret boyfriend) Charlie Cox as Murdock. So far no other cast members have been announced.

Steve S. DeKnight will serve as showrunner.

“Daredevil” will premiere on Netflix sometime in 2015 simultaneously like previous Netflix Original Series. It will consist of 13 episodes. The series will be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Daredevil” is the first of five Marvel projects that were ordered for Netflix. It is to be followed by “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage,” before leading into a “Defenders” miniseries.
