Is This Character Returning For Daredevil Season 2?

Daredevil Season 2 is just two weeks away and here at Nerd Lowdown HQ are starting to get very excited! However, is a certain fan favourite Season 1 character set to return?

We must warn you that this post is probably not so long but filled with many spoilers and should you go on you do so at your own peril.


Ready? Let’s go. According to MCU Exchange, the character that is returning to Daredevil Season 2 is none other than the Kingpin himself Wilson Fisk! Thanks to some pretty clear set photos that apparently date back to October, we see Vincent D’Onofrio returning to his trailer on set.

Ok, so considering Kingpin was not killed off at the end of Daredevil’s debut season and just brought to prison (we know how secure comic book prisons are), we all knew that he would make a return at some point or another, right? That leaves us with questions as to what his role within Season 2 of the hit Netflix series will be. He is of course Daredevil’s arch-nemesis, so you’d expect him to be there just like you expect the Joker to be around Batman but what if his return is closer linked to the Punisher than it is the Man Without Fear?


We point to Frank Castle’s origin story. An ex-military family man whose family is gunned down in the midst of gang violence in New York City and from that point on he swears an oath of vengeance to punish those who killed his wife & kids. What if it is as a result of Kingpin’s mob that this version of the Punisher is born? His purpose in Season 2 might well be to kill Wilson Fisk and have revenge for his family’s death, but this leaves Daredevil sandwiched in the middle as he does not believe that killing is the right way to do things in comparison to the Punisher’s shoot first & never mind the questions attitude. This is of course speculation on our behalf, but certainly brings justified purpose to bring Fisk back… as if it was needed! His performance as Wilson Fisk certainly pleased Kingpin fans everywhere and was a shining light among so many in the debut season of Daredevil!

Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2 lands on Netflix on March 18th!
