Big Marvel Plans For Kingpin Start Alongside Next Episode Of Hawkeye

Is this further evidence of the Kingpin in the Hawkeye series on Disney+? The most recent episode of the TV show reprised a scene from the Marvel comic books, as Bleeding Cool reported;

Now for those of you familiar with the comics, you know that Lopez is the adopted daughter and protege of Wilson Fisk… in one flashback scene, we see a young Maya meeting with a large man who wasn't fully shown and went by the title "Uncle." We also have Clint referencing that there was "someone above Maya" and that it was "someone you don't wanna mess with." And with Clint's Ronin past and its connection with Maya's backstory explained, that "Fat Man Auto Repair" takes on a whole new meaning.

Wilson is is the Kingpin. Next week sees the beginning of the Devil's Reign event in Daredevil and spin-off comics from Marvel, set up by this year's Free Comic Book Day. Marvel Comics says that on Wednesday, the 8th of December, "Mayor Wilson Fisk will have all of Marvel's heroes in his deadly grip" and that "spinning out of writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto's Eisner-nominated run on Daredevil, this far-reaching saga will see Kingpin use his power and influence in a vicious quest to rid the world of every last Super Hero. The story will conclude in March but the epic aftermath will only have just begun…" And we have solicitations for those final chapters in March 2022. And for now, Devil's Reign #1 is published next week.
