You can't have a good hero without a great villain, and it looks like once again Marvel is nailing it with their casting. Or as Kingpin might say, they "only hire the best men."

Vincent D'Onofrio, known best for his portrayal of genius detective Goren on Law & Order: Criminal Intent has been tapped to play the (very) big bad of the 13-episode Daredevil series on Netflix.

As Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime, Vincent will go head-to-head with Stardust star Charlie Cox, previously announced as the new Daredevil.

The mammoth mastermind Kingpin was previously played in the 2003 film by the late, great Michael Clarke Duncan.

Though Vincent is known more for playing brainy oddball roles, he is actually 6' 4", only an inch shorter than MCD.

That might not mean much to Ben Affleck (he's the exact same height!), but it should be plenty enough to tower over the 5' 10" Charlie.

Sorry, Ben! Daredevil Getting The Reboot Treatment

Last we heard about Daredevil, Matt Damon was speaking about how he ALMOST played the title role that eventually went to Ben Affleck.

Looks like Matt will have a second chance, because 30 Days of Night director David Slade is working on a Daredevil reboot for 20th Century Fox.

Details are scarce at this point, but reports say that the story will be based on Frank Miller & David Mazzucchelli's Born Again story arc, "which has the Kingpin discovering Daredevil's secret identity, Matt Murdoch, and destroying Murdoch's life."

We're not sure how necessary this is, but we suppose we'll be curious to see who they cast as Daredevil.

How about Garrett Hedlund? After seeing Tron: Legacy, we're thinking he's a VERY solid choice for upcoming action flicks.

Who do U think would be a good choice for the new Daredevil?
