His turn as Wilson Fisk / Kingpin was a highlight of the popular series and his return in season two was both surprising and brilliant. So, of course, fans want to know if we'll be seeing Mr. Fisk return in the upcoming Marvel's The Defenders. While responding to fans on twitter, D'Onofrio came out very definitively about it.
