    How The Scene Sets Up Kingpin In ‘Daredevil: Born Again’


    After ‘Echo‘, Marvel fans are excited about the upcoming live-action series ‘Daredevil: Born Again series‘, featuring Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio reprising their role as Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk a.k.a Kingpin. All the speculation and rumors about Vincent D’Onofrio returning to the set seemed all true when the post-credits scene of ‘Echo‘ established that Kingpin would indeed run for mayor of New York City in ‘Daredevil: Born Again’.

    The post-credit scene set up Kingpin as the possible politician, with fans drawing parallels between Kingpin and former U.S. president, Donald Trump. The way the reporters in ‘Echo‘ talk about New York City needing someone who is not a normal political candidate seems similar to Trump’s 2016 campaign, leading viewers to draw obvious parallels between Kingpin and Trump.

    Also, the current storyline about Kingpin is in line with the Marvel comics as well. In the comics, Wilson Fisk runs for mayor of New York City and ends up winning. Once in office, he uses his position to wage war against vigilantes, including calling for the arrest of Daredevil. Matt Murdock decides to accept a position as Fisk’s deputy mayor, with the hidden agenda of taking down Fisk. However, it is unclear how much the writers and directors will adapt from the comics.
