Vincent D'Onofrio Insists He's Not Part of No Way Home's Cast

Vincent D'Onofrio is excited for the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home -- but the actor says he's not in it.

Rumors have been flying about the third MCU Spider-Man film, with everyone from Kirsten Dunst to Charlie Cox to Andrew Garfield allegedly appearing. And it's not hard to see why, given the film's multiversal and magical plot and the already announced returning cast members, including Alfred Molina reprising his role as Doctor Octopus and Jamie Foxx appearing once again as Electro. But one long-time Spider-Man villain from the comics will not be showing up: Kingpin.

A fan asked the actor on Twitter if Wilson Fisk, AKA the Kingpin, will appear in next month's film. And D'Onofrio dashed their hopes, saying, "I can't wait to see it. I'm not in it but I hear it's a very cool film."

While fellow Daredevil actor Charlie Cox has long been rumored to appear in No Way Home as Matt Murdock, there has been less indication that Fisk could appear. But D'Onofrio recently lobbied for a role in Spider-Man 3 -- though it now seems that dream won't come true. But that doesn't mean he'll never play the character again.

Multiple stars of the Netflix Marvel shows have been rumored to be returning to their roles for the MCU, including D'Onofrio. Kingpin will reportedly appear on Hawkeye, which arrives later this month on Disney+. Fisk is predominantly a Spider-Man and Daredevil foe in the comics, but he also played a role in Matt Fraction and David Aja's comic run which will serve as the basis for Clint Barton's small-screen adventures. And after the initial rumors appeared in the summer, D'Onofrio seemed to fuel speculation about a role on the show.

Beyond Hawkeye, yet another rumor has claimed D'Onofrio will return as Kingpin on Echo, a spinoff featuring Alaqua Cox. D'Onofrio was one of the most acclaimed actors on Daredevil and has long said he wants to play the role of Fisk again. And he's not alone. Along with the rumors about Cox in Spider-Man 3, he's also been rumored to appear on Echo, She-Hulk, and maybe even in a solo Daredevil project. Krysten Ritter, meanwhile, is also rumored to return for She-Hulk.

Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in theaters Dec. 17.
