Marvel’s Daredevil – Wilson Fisk First Look Image Debutby Jon Lachonis / March 2, 2015
Marvel’s Daredevil is just over a month away from premiering on Netflix, and now we have our first look at one of Matt Murdock‘s key nemisis, Wilson Fisk played by the great Vincent Vincent D’Onofrio.
Daredevil centers around Lawyer Matt Murdock, blinded as a young boy Murdock has developed extraordinary sensory powers. During the day, he fights injustice in the court room, but at night he becomes a violent vigilante taking the fight to the mean streets of Hell’s Kitchen.
The shadowy figure behind organized crime in Hell’s Kitchen, Wilson Fisk has one mission in mind: to save Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter the cost. This immediately puts him at odds with Matt Murdock’s vigilante alter-ego, who also seeks to protect the city – but sees the criminal element as the root of the city’s problems. Central to this conflict is that Fisk truly believes he’s doing good for Hell’s Kitchen and at times may seem more of a hero to its people than Daredevil. Intelligent, complex and physically imposing, Wilson Fisk is the perfect foil for Matt Murdock, and the two will collide dramatically in Marvel’s Daredevil.
