In the comics, The Kingpin is a large, bald, white man who wears a white suit and carries a cane. So who pulls off the look best?
Michael Clarke Duncan’s Appearance As Kingpin
Michael Clarke Duncan is a large, bald, black man who doesn’t even wear Kingpin’s trademark white suit. He does carry a cane, though.
I liked Michael Clarke Duncan in the role, but after seeing Vincent D’Onofrio, it’s kind of hard to go back.
Vincent D’Onofrio’s Appearance As Kingpin
Vincent D’Onofrio looks just like the Kingpin from the comics. I mean, almost identical. I honestly couldn’t think of a better Kingpin, appearance-wise.
In that way, he’s pretty much the perfect Kingpin. And Vincent D’Onofrio thinks so, too, which is why he would love to play the character again.
The Appearance Victor: Vincent D’Onofrio
There’s no contest here. Vincent D’Onofrio definitely looks more like the comic book character. He rocks!
