A new fan art sees Hawk EyeKingpin receives the Disney treatment via a Mickey Mouse-inspired comic book cover. The latest series from Marvel Studios, Hawk Eye, has just released its last episode on Disney + on December 22. The series follows Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and his super fan / mentee Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) as they clash with the tracksuit mafia, Maya Lopez / Echo (Alaqua Cox) and their boss, “Uncle. “from Maya. In Hawk Eye episode 6, daredevilWilson Fisk / Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) makes his official MCU debut.
In 2019, Netflix canceled all of its Marvel TV shows, including Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Ironfist, Punisher, and daredevil. Despite their mature nature, Netflix’s “street-level heroes” have all referred to the bigger MCU, but not the other way around. Given the beloved status of Marvel’s Netflix shows (in particular, daredevil), Fans were hoping that one day the Defenders and Punisher would be introduced to the MCU, with Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock and D’Onofrio’s Fisk at the center of that conversation. Now, Fisk has finally made its debut with the PG-13 MCU.
Artist Butcher Billy on Twitter recently shared artwork giving Hawkeye’s Kingpin a Disney makeover. The comic book cover, titled “Walt Disney’s Kingpin”, shows D’Onofrio’s character sporting the iconic Mickey Mouse ears. The mash-up image is also accompanied by a playful slogan, “Family approved! All ages. “ Check it out below:
Hawk EyeNetflix finale doesn’t know if Netflix daredevil is canon in the biggest MCU. While Kingpin’s appearance in the series is true to the comics and powers him up, he still seems to have his father’s cufflinks. In addition, D’Onfrio’s performance remains broadly in line with what he did in daredevil. Many have wondered how Disney / Marvel Studios would implement the newly acquired characters from mature IPs, including Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool and the characters from Netflix. Jon Bernthal, whose Punisher was by far the most violent Netflix character, even said he’s not sure his Frank Castle could exist in the family MCU. However, Deadpool 3 is on the horizon, and that bodes well for a more mature corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Kingpin and Daredevil both have ties to Echo in the comics. Although Hawk Eye involves Kingpin’s death, it seems more likely that he will appear in the Echo spinoff series with Cox’s Daredevil. As evidenced by D’Onfrio’s performance in Hawk Eye, Kingpin can work in an age appropriate outlet. Still, a Disney approach to the already established (more) dark characters will continue to be a fickle endeavor. If or when the studio produces its first R-rated project, either Deadpool 3 or the highly requested daredevil season 4, the entire MCU will change forever.
