History

In the feature film, Daredevil, Michael Clarke Duncan played the character. As in the animated series, he is responsible for the murder of Daredevil's father. Although he is African-American and in the comics the Kingpin is Caucasian, the studio decided to use Duncan, who resembled the character's intimidating stature. Many fans and critics have praised Duncan for his portrayal of the character. Here, Kingpin started out as an enforcer for a mob boss named Fallon, in which capacity he was hired to kill Jack "The Devil" Murdock after he refused to throw a fight. Years later, Fisk became a crime boss in his own right and successfully his his criminal activities from the public, although the media picked up on reports of a "Kingpin", running all crime in the city. He hired Bullseye to kill Nicholas Natchios (attempting to frame Natchios as the Kingpin in the process). He was successfull, but Fisk also wanted Natchios' family killed as well and hired Bullseye to kill Natchios' daughter, Elektra, as well as the troublesome Daredevil. After he supposedly killed Elektra, Bullseye lost to Daredevil, although he revealed that Fisk was really the Kingpin during the fight. Having learned of his assassin's failure, Daredevil and Kingpin confronted each other in a final showdown. Due mainly to his injured shoulder, stabbed by Elektra when she believed him to be her father's killer, Daredevil was severly beaten by Fisk, who unmasked him, revealing that Daredevil was really "the blind lawyer from Hell's Kitchen", Matt Murdock, who Kingpin met at the party that took place prior to Nicholas Natchios' death. Daredevil nevertheless managed to make a comeback, triggering the sprinkler system in Fisk's office, thus allowing him to "see" his opponent while rendering Fisk practically blind, and subsequently taking Fisk down by breaking his legs. Daredevil prepared to kill Fisk to take revenge for his father and for Elektra by impaling him with a steel pike, but let the Kingpin live so as not to stoop to his level. Instead, Daredevil left Fisk for the police, who had learned of his identity as the Kingpin. Fisk threatened to tell everyone who Daredevil really was, until Daredevil pointed out that revealing to his prison inmates that he had been beaten by a blind man was the equivalent of suicide. Nevertheless, Kingpin swore that he'd get out of jail soon and that he'd be back to kill Daredevil, who merely said he would be waiting.
