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 (Charlie Cox) 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.” Fisk was previously portrayed by Michael Clarke Duncan in “Daredevil’s” big screen outing.
Rounding out the cast alongside Cox and D’Onofrio are Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Vondie Curtis Hall as Ben Ulrich, Scott Glenn as Stick, Ayelet Zurer as Vanessa Marianna, Bob Gunton as Leland Owlsey and Toby Leonard Moore as Wesley.
Marvel’s first original series for Netflix is executive produced by showrunner Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard, along with Jeph Loeb, who also serves as Marvel’s head of television. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.
All 13 episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil” will premiere on April 10 at 12:01 a.m. PT on Netflix.
