On Dec. 17, Twitter released its newest emoji to promote Marvel’s Hawkeye series featuring Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin. As per Twitter’s operations, you can use the emoji with the hashtag #Kingpin.
Following rumors that D’Onofrio’s Daredevil antagonist would appear in Hawkeye, the sudden arrival of the Kingpin emoji makes it even more likely for the crime boss to make — at least — a cameo appearance.
Previously, Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova made her grand entrance to confront Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye — as suggested in the Black Widow post-credits scene. Given Marvel’s track record for keeping secrets, it can be expected for the stand-out studio to have something up their sleeve as far as introducing Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin to the Hawkeye cast.
The Kingpin emoji could easily be a red herring, but the timing seems too perfect to be coincidental, especially with Marvel’s Hawkeye in full swing and Episode 6 released just three days before Christmas. Without a doubt, Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin would be the perfect holiday gift for Marvel fans everywhere.
