‘Hawkeye’: Vincent D’Onofrio on Kingpin’s Return & What Happened in the Finale

‘Hawkeye’: Vincent D’Onofrio on Kingpin’s Return & What Happened in the Finale
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for Hawkeye, Season 1, Episode 6, “So This Is Christmas?”] The Hawkeye season finale made way for one big character’s arrival as Vincent D’Onofrio reprised his role as Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin. The “big guy” in charge and “uncle” to Alaqua Cox‘s Maya Lopez, a.k.a. Echo, made his presence known as he threw around his weight both physically and metaphorically. As his ties to Maya and Kate Bishop’s (Hailee Steinfeld) mother, Eleanor (Vera Farmiga) became more clear, so did the lethal threat that Kingpin poses in the universe. Eager to do away with Eleanor after she threatens to blackmail Fisk and his organizations should he not allow her to leave her role within the criminal rings, Kingpin put his Tracksuit Mafia to the task of eliminating the threat. Despite D’Onofrio’s previous involvement in Netflix’s since-canceled Daredevil series which hadn’t been part of

Vincent D’Onofrio On Laura Barton’s Rolex & Kingpin’s Fate In ‘Hawkeye’ & MCU: “I Want To Keep Playing This Part”
Spoiler Alert: The following interview contains spoilers from Disney+/Marvel’s Season 1 finale of Hawkeye.

“The people need to be reminded that this city belongs to me,” Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin tells his loyal henchman Kazi at the onset of the Hawkeye Season 1 finale this week.

As Hawkeye hands off to its spinoff series Echo, which follows deaf superhero Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), the big question is whether D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk will continue his reign over New York City. He did endure quite the punch in the season ender of Hawkeye, which saw the bad guy returning to the Marvel Television screen after three seasons on Netflix’s Daredevil. Kingpin gets shot at with arrows, but pulls them off his chest like moths; gets slammed into by a car that has Eleanor Bishop (Vera Farmiga) behind the wheel; and survives several exploding trick arrows detonated

What's Kingpin's Fate on Hawkeye? After the Finale, Here's What We Think

What's Kingpin's Fate on Hawkeye? After the Finale, Here's What We Think
The season finale of Hawkeye features plenty of major twists and takedowns, and one of the biggest confrontations involves the show's most shadowy villain: Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin. After his protégé, Maya Lopez (aka Echo), discovers that her "uncle" is actually the one responsible for her father's death, she tracks him down and confronts him, and a gun fires. But is Kingpin really dead? We're not so sure.

The rule that every TV and movie viewer knows is that if you don't see the body, don't believe they're dead. After surviving a lot (including attacks from Kate's arrows and literally being hit by a car), it seems like Kingpin has finally run out of luck when Maya arrives, now armed with the knowledge that he put the hit on her father. He begs for his life and insists that they're "family," and that's when Maya fires her gun. We very

Hawkeye Finale Ending Explained: The Rolex Watch, Kingpin, and More!
This article contains spoilers for Hawkeye episode 6 and wider speculation about the future of the MCU.

Hawkeye has finally wrapped up and it certainly ended its juggling act with a flourish. The series had so much going on that some would argue that too much was on its plate. Not only were there so many subplots weaving through each other, but the show brought in Yelena Belova from Black Widow and the Kingpin from Daredevil as the mystery villain and used them as closure instead of just giving them some cameos and hinting towards their next MCU appearances.

Between Clint Barton finally overcoming his personal demons, Kate Bishop ascending as a superhero, and the payoff to a certain MacGuffin, here’s what went down in the Hawkeye finale.

Let's Talk About That Hawkeye Episode 5 Bathroom Scene
The McU's latest series may be titled "Hawkeye," and even named its fifth episode after the archer's alter-ego "Ronin," but that doesn't change the reality of Clint Barton's (Jeremy Renner) situation: his show is full of characters slipping onstage and seamlessly stealing his spotlight. Without a doubt, this is the best opportunity that the bow-wielding Avenger has found to shine and he's made great use of it, finally getting more of the fanbase over into his trick-arrow cluttered corner. Even so, it's notable that scene-stealers like Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) and Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) have been in the MCU for a fraction of Clint's...

Hawkeye Episode 5 Suggests That, Yes, Those Are Canon
Just like the all-too-short holiday season itself, "Hawkeye" is rapidly speeding toward its conclusion after feeling like it had only just begun. With five episodes down and only one more to go, the big picture of the series is falling into place -- even as more and more plates are left spinning. Though Maya Lopez's (Alaqua Cox) vendetta against Ronin for killing her crime boss father has accounted for most of the conflict in the series, last week gave us the surprise appearance of a wild card in the mix: Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) and her own vengeful mission against the Avenger she holds accountable for...

Why The Hawkeye Directors Won't Return For Echo Spin-Off

Why The Hawkeye Directors Won't Return For Echo Spin-Off
Outside of steadfast Marvel comic book readers, few people knew who Maya Lopez, aka Echo, was prior to Alaqua Cox playing the character on "Hawkeye." A compelling series of flashbacks outlining her backstory and some nifty action scenes later, Echo has emerged as an engaging new addition to the MCU — to say nothing of the fact that she's a deaf Native American woman with a prosthetic limb appearing in a franchise that's focused primarily on white, able-bodied heroes and villains for much of its run (more recent improvements aside).

Marvel Studios has already confirmed its plans to continue Maya's story in the upcoming series "Echo," with...

‘Hawkeye’ Star Fra Fee on Kazi’s Sibling Bond With Maya & What Yelena’s Arrival Means

‘Hawkeye’ Star Fra Fee on Kazi’s Sibling Bond With Maya & What Yelena’s Arrival Means
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for Hawkeye, Season 1, Episode 4, “Partners, Am I Right?”] Hawkeye continues to ramp up the action as it races towards its fifth episode, but some mysteries still remain, particularly when it comes to the Tracksuit Mafia (currently headed by Maya Lopez [Alaqua Cox]) and its motivations. Maya’s close confidant Kazi (Fra Fee) is following orders to pursue uncovering the mystery behind Ronin’s identity, unaware that it was Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) who once donned the suit and wielded the sword that ultimately killed her father. In the latest installment, Clint attempted to squash Maya’s pursuit of Ronin during a conversation with Kazi from the backseat of a car. Whether or not his message for Maya was sent through, Kazi’s concern for his pal isn’t made any easier when a new face enters the frazzled scene with Florence Pugh‘s Yelena Belova.

Four episodes into Hawkeye and we still know little about Kazi, a longtime member of the Tracksuit Mafia. According to Fra Fee, who plays the “hot guy” (as Kate put it), the high-ranking criminal is much more than meets the eye.

“I don’t think he’s an inherently evil person,” Fee tells TVLine. “If there’s no need for bloodshed, I reckon he would decide against it.”

‘Hawkeye’ Directors Break Down That Dazzling Car Chase, and the Debut of [Spoiler] in Episode 4

‘Hawkeye’ Directors Break Down That Dazzling Car Chase, and the Debut of [Spoiler] in Episode 4
Spoiler Warning: This story discusses plot points in Episode 3 and Episode 4 of Marvel Studios’ “Hawkeye,” currently streaming on Disney Plus.

For its first four series for Disney Plus, Marvel Studios hired a single filmmaker to direct every episode of the season (including Matt Shakman for “WandaVision” and Kate Herron for “Loki”). On “Hawkeye,” however, Marvel split director duties between Rhys Thomas (“Documentary Now!”), who helmed the first, second and sixth episodes of the season, and the team of Bert and Bertie (“Troop Zero”), who helmed Episodes 3 through 5.

The process meant that Bert and Bertie had to step to the head of a train that was already stocked and well on its way — and the duo’s initial episode, “Echoes,” starts with a bang, involving a lengthy car chase sequence in which Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) and Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) fend off goons called the Tracksuit Mafia. The sequence opens with an extended,

Picking up right where Episode 3 left off, the threat posed by the Ronin blade Jack held to Clint’s throat lasted nary a second, as Jack and Eleanor came to realize that their uninvited guests were but Kate and… an Avenger?!

‘Hawkeye’ Directors Bert & Bertie on Bringing Echo to Life Onscreen With Alaqua Cox
It’s not every day that you make your entrance into the Marvel Universe and are also guaranteed a solo project within that universe, but such is the case for Hawkeye‘s Alaqua Cox whose character Maya Lopez was fully introduced in the show’s third episode. The character who also goes by Echo is both Native American and deaf, two things that executive producers Trinh Tran and Kevin Feige were adamant about representing onscreen. As a deaf, Native American actress, Cox checked both those boxes but also brings her own unique spin to the comic character. (Credit: Disney+/©Marvel Studios) “Marvel, Kevin Fiege, and Trinh Tran felt so strongly about finding an actor like Alaqua who is deaf, and going on that journey with her and supporting her,” series director Bert, of the duo Bert & Bertie, tells TV Insider. “They supported her every step of the way and obviously

When it comes to Hawkeye’s Maya Lopez (played by Alaqua Cox), who is both deaf and an amputee, directing duo Bert and Bertie say the skilled Native American assassin uses her disabilities as sources of strength in the Disney+ series.

“That’s her superpower,” the directors tell TVLine. “Everything that she’s learned in life comes from what we see as a disability… but that’s the reason she kicks ass.”

Marvel Studios upcoming live-action TV series "Echo", spinning off from the new "Hawkeye" series, follows 'hearing impaired'  super-powered native American 'Maya Lopez' (Alaqua Cox), alongside Marvel Comics blind crime-fighter 'Daredevil' (Charlie Cox):

"...with a hand-print across her face, 'Maya Lopez' is an Olympic-level athlete possessing 'photographic reflexes', defined as the uncanny ability to perfectly copy other people's movements. Just by watching other people, she has become a concert-level pianist, a martial artist, a highly skilled acrobat and gifted ballerina. 

"She also gained the acrobatic abilities of 'Daredevil' and the uncanny aim of 'Bullseye'. But her deafness is a drawback as she relies on visual cues that render her helpless in the dark, and her ability to communicate by reading lips prevents her from taking commands and communicating with people who are wearing masks or are not in direct visual contact.
