Disney+ Boss Keeps Door Open For DAREDEVIL And Other Cancelled Marvel Series
There is a lot of speculation surrounding the sudden cancellations of shows like Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil. With the looming introduction of Disney’s own streaming service, Netflix might not want to be in the Marvel (a Disney owned company) business anymore. So is there a chance that these shows could continue elsewhere?
If the answer was no, you would think people would just come out and scream “NO!” But that didn’t happen. Instead, Kevin Mayer, who serves as the chairman of Disney Direct-To-Consumer, told THR that there is a chance.
Would you consider reviving the Marvel shows that Netflix cancelled?
“They are very high-quality shows. We haven’t yet discussed that, but I would say that’s a possibility.”
Apparently it is in the contracts of the Netflix stars that they can’t appear as the character for 2 years after cancellation. So it makes sense that they haven’t discussed it yet. But while I don’t know if everyone would come back, I would be shocked if we never saw Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil again.
Netflix still has Jessica Jones and The Punisher seasons to show us. I assume those will be the final seasons of each show. Maybe Disney + will wait until they have all of their Netflix properties back under their roof before doing….something with them. I don’t think we can rule out a Defenders series and or direct to the app movie either.
Of course, the other option is that maybe they will get integrated into the MCU Proper. The roster is about to get a bit smaller after Avengers: Endgame. Maybe we see Daredevil in Spider-Man 3. Or Jessica Jones helping Black Widow do spy stuff. The possibilities are ripe for a semi-reinvention.
Let’s focus on the positive. We had 3 wonderful seasons of Daredevil. We have Loki and Scarlet Witch shows coming. We have Captain Marvel, Avengers 4, and Spider-Man: Far From Home coming soon. It is a wonderful time to be a Marvel fan. But don’t lose hope, it sounds that we will get more of our Netflix friends eventually – just not on Netflix.
