Hot Rumor: Is Marvel Setting Up A ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Reunion on 'Daredevil’?
Here’s another one to add to the pile: Marvel studios has met with Vincent Piazza. The actor is best known for playing Lucky Luciano on Boardwalk Empire, the HBO show that also prominently featured future Matt Murdock, Charlie Cox.
It’s unclear at this time who Piazza would be playing in the Marvel Universe, but rumblings of a “reunion” makes us think that Daredevil Season 2 would be the most likely place to see Piazza pop up. Since Statham pulled out of negotiations to play Bullseye on Netflix, we know that role is still up for grabs, but that doesn’t mean Piazza couldn’t also pop up as a crime lord under The Kingpin, a member of a rival gang or a District Attorney that Matt needs to face down in court.
Another interesting possibility is that Piazza, who can clearly convincingly play a mobster, might play the man responsible for killing Frank Castle’s family- thus setting him up to be part of the Punisher series. That’s just speculation, of course.
Representatives for Piazza didn’t return my calls for comment.
