A new "Daredevil" series will launch in April on Netflix.

It's the first of four upcoming Marvel series to appear on the streaming site.

We've seen a few teasers and trailers for the upcoming show, including many images of Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) as the blind lawyer who becomes the famed vigilante.

Monday, Netflix unveiled the first image of the villain, Kingpin, who will be played by Vincent D'Onofrio ("Full Metal Jacket").

D'Onofrio will be the first actor to play the "Daredevil" nemesis since Michael Clarke Duncan in 2003's heavily-panned film starring Ben Affleck.

The actor tells USA Today he gained about 30 pounds and studied the comic book series for the role.

"I wanted him to have an appearance of being super-powerful so that when he throws a punch, it's a major punch," said D'Onofrio. "There's a lot of weight behind it."

"Daredevil" premieres on Netflix April 10.
