After all, these are quite violent programs, far from the family spirit of Disney. Daredevil, Punisher, Jessica Jones, very dark productions and that the entertainment giant perhaps did not want to integrate into its universe. And yet… In the series Hawkeye on Disney+, Clint Barton and Kate Bishop cross paths with a major villain in the finale: the Kingpin. Vincent D’Onofrio, now safe from haters , resumes his role of Daredevil. A brutal role since in one scene, the villain blows up the skull of a man with the door of a car. But in Hawkeye, the depicted version is softer, MCU obliges. During an interview (via ComicBook), Vincent D’Onofrio confided on this big gap.

The collaboration between Marvel and Netflix has given rise to violent series. PG-13 or Rated-R, depending, d ‘after the American classification. Between violence, bloody scenes, sex, the productions of the leader of the SVOD have not done in the software. So see the Kingpin in Hawkeye may surprise! Bestial in Daredevil, the character played by Vincent D’Onofrio is softer here. The villain’s interpreter talks about this big gap in an interview.
I think that the difference in tone is obvious. I don’t think it’s less bloody. We talked about it a lot and for me, it’s not a concern, because if I want to go further in the MCU, I will do the same work as for Daredevil and Hawkeye. The Caïd, is emotional brutality, a real disaster. It’s a broken monster. He is capable of several types of brutality. So I was not worried during Hawkeye. I noticed less blood and torture and that reduced things. Most bad guys aren’t just bad, they also torture people. And that is too hardcore. So it’s over for Hawkeye but I hope for a sequel. Vincent D’Onofrio Vincent D’Onofrio adds: ” When you see the Kingpin, you must be uncomfortable no matter what. Even when he wears the costume I had, the Hawaiian shirt”.
