Daredevil and Kingpin are definitely Marvel’s best and most well-written enemies, with Daredevil always trying to do everything he can short of killing to stop Kingpin and Wilson being two steps ahead of him all of the time. When we first Charlie Cox‘s Daredevil in Spider-Man: No Way Home and shortly after we got to see Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin in the Marvel’s Hawkeye series and soon after that all of the fans started wondering when will the two sworn enemies face each other again and now The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Daredevil and Kingpin will be in the Hawkeye spinoff series Echo.
While a Daredevil reboot is also in the works for Disney+, Echo might be a better choice to reintroduce both of the characters in the MCU together. Echo first entered the MCU through the Disney+ Hawkeye series in which she is hunting Clint Barton aka Hawkeye, the character of Echo made her appearance in 1999’s Daredevil #9. In the aforementioned comic book issue, we see Echo as an orphan raised by Fisk, who later uses her as an assassin to attack Daredevil. While we don’t know how these characters are familiar with each other in the MCU, we do know that fans have been waiting for this reunion for a long time now.
Daredevil and Kingpin might not be the only characters that are coming over from the Netflix shows, as it was reported by The Weekly Planet podcast that Daredevil’s plotline in Echo will include searching for Jessica Jones, who was played by Krysten Ritter in the Netflix series. While there is little chance that Jessica Jones will join the MCU as it is one of the most mature-themed Marvel shows which will not sit well with the family-friendly image of the MCU and even if Jessica Jones does make the cut, the series will definitely lose some of the fan following because of the changes that will be made to the character.
There are many brilliant characters from the Netflix Marvel shows that could join the MCU such as Luke Cage and The Punisher, and while these seem like impossibilities but since the Black Bolt appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, all bets are off and it seems that Kevin Feige is scrounging up everything he can to put more noticeable characters in all of the MCU’s outings.
