Dispelling the rumors, D'Onofrio tweeted to his fans saying that he was surprised with the news but confirming that it won't happen although he thought it would be great. The actor who plays as Wilson Fisk or popularly known as the Kingpin - a vigilante created by Stan Lee back in 1967. Marvel Cinematic Universe often does crossover between its movies and TV shows, and the fans seem to be optimistic that someday Kingpin would appear in the "Spiderman" movie. With his recent Tweet, it seems that D'Onofrio is trying to ditch the viral rumors that stated he wants a role in a "Spiderman" movie. He made another update in his Twitter, by saying that fans should tell Marvel if they want him to play in "Spiderman: Homecoming", which could literally translate to 'not in a chance'? D'Onofrio fans commented on his update, that they also agreed on the fact he will not be featured in the movie as it would cause a chaos and could likely murder young Spidey.
