John Rhys-Davies accepted the role of Wilson Fisk, also known as The Kingpin, without knowing that the character is bald and clean-shaved in the comics. When he learned this, he offered to shave his head, as the producers were unable to get him a bald skullcap, however, they declined and Rhys-Davies appeared with a different look. Additionally, Fisk is never referred to as "The Kingpin" in the film. See more »

This is essentially a daredevil movie, but I really liked it. It's low budget , but gets the spirit of the comics. I always liked the guy who played Banner (sorry can't remember his name)in the TV series, he was easy to sympathize with. Haven't been able to bring myself to watch the recent daredevil or hulk films. Stan Lee criticized the movie because of daredevils costume and a few other things, but frankly for the budget (and all the early marvel movies were low budget with an oddly 1970's feel),the director and cast have managed very well. As for Fisk/Kingpin being bald, frankly no one could actually look like the giant bald guy portrayed in the comics, also don't remember anyone commenting about gene hackman playing Lex Luther in the superman movies (he is revealed to be wearing a toupee at the end of one movie)
