Rumors that Marvel's Daredevil villain Wilson Fisk (played by Vincent D'Onofrio) is headed to Spider-Man: Homecoming may be exaggerated -- but that doesn't mean D'Onofrio wouldn't jump at the opportunity.
Following a week where reports came out that D'Onofrio's Netflix character was headed for cinema screens, the actor took to Twitter to both deny that talks were ongoing -- and embrace the concept.

Wilson Fisk, better known as Kingpin, was originally created as a Spider-Man villain back in 1967. As Spidey started to take on more super-powered and/or cosmic threats, though, Kingpin became a foe more suited for street-level vigilantes like Daredevil and The Punisher.
Joining star Tom Holland in filmmaker Jon Watts's Spider-Man: Homecoming is Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Zendaya in an undisclosed role.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released on July 7, 2017.
