I used to think that Disney-owned Marvel had a pretty clear-cut claim to Wilson Fisk, featuring him in Daredevil since 2015. However, just a few months ago he appeared in Spider-Verse (brought to you by Sony), and now I'm not so sure I know who owns him. How can both studios use him?
- Did someone make a deal with someone else, like how Disney let Fox change Negasonic Teenage Warhead's powers in exchange for the rights to use Ego in Guardians 2?
- Is it a Quicksilver-style scenario, where Kingpin exists as part of both the rights to Daredevil and the rights to Spider-Man?
- Is this all building up to a Kingpin-Verse movie, in which Peter Parker's multidimensional efforts to bring back Uncle Ben end up uniting Vincent D'Onofrio, Liev Schreiber, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Kingpig?
