How Echo Episode 5’s Post-Credits Scene Sets Up A New Marvel Disney+ Series

A supervillain like Kingpin attaining greater political influence would be a major development for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And it would have interesting ramifications for the franchise that aren’t simply the Multiverse being threatened. Plus, if rumors are to be believed, Kingpin’s mayoral dreams may go further than “Daredevil: Born Again” and factor into the film side of things.

One Marvel rumor suggests Daredevil, Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and other heroes could team up for the eventual “Spider-Man 4” movie. Kingpin becoming mayor could kick off an adaptation of the “Devil’s Reign” arc from the comics where Wilson Fisk bans superheroes from New York’s streets and hires various supervillains to keep the do-gooders at bay. With Spider-Man becoming a persona non grata at the end of “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” he may become more reliant on the likes of Daredevil and even Luke Cage (Mike Colter) to help him out since he can’t rely on the Avengers anymore. After all, Peter Parker already has a rapport with Matt Murdock, seeing as how he was Peter’s lawyer for a bit in “No Way Home.”

Depending on who Marvel wants to bring back, there could be quite a few New York-based vigilantes running around who don’t see eye to eye with Kingpin. Further rumors suggest the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) may make his Marvel return on “Daredevil: Born Again.” However, things could’ve easily changed. The end of 2023 came with a report that “Born Again” was getting completely overhauled due to disastrous responses from higher-ups. Regardless of what happens, it does appear Kingpin is here to stay in some manner throughout the MCU.
