With Charlie Cox already announced to play the blind superhero Daredevil in the Netflix series of the same name, the hero was in need of a villain to contend against. Marvel Studios announced Tuesday that "Law and Order" star Vincent D'Onofrio will take on the role of Matt Murdock's greatest nemesis, the Kingpin.

The veteran actor has starred in various television and films through the decades including "Men in Black," "JFK," and "Full Metal Jacket." He now will be tasked with portraying one of Marvel's signature crime syndicate baddies.

Wilson Fisk, or better known as the Kingpin has appeared as a villain for both Spider-Man and Daredevil since his debut in "The Amazing Spider-Man" issue #50 (1967). Throughout the years, he has employed various super villains to deter New York heroes from his criminal activities.

"Daredevil" will premiere on Netflix in 2015 with 13 episodes and will be the first series in the Marvel/Netflix partnership of shows.
