Daredevil's Not Dead: Disney+ Could Revive Cancelled Marvel Netflix Shows


What we know for certain is that the shows - including the two seasons yet to air of The Punisher and Jessica Jones - will not continue on Netflix as an ongoing concern.

Regardless who is exactly to blame, what is known is that Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage are canceled, with Punisher and Jessica Jones expected to be as well once their new seasons air.

The production staff at Marvel were apparently surprised by the news, leading to speculation that Netflix was exclusively responsible for the cancellation, and had done so due to the series' vast costs.

"They are very high-quality shows".

In recent months, Netflix has cancelled three Marvel hit shows.

DF Kyle Walker, 6 - It's rare he comes up against someone who can match his pace. "It's better to start step by step". Lookman disclosed as much while throwing light on the impact Silva has made with the club in the unfolding season.

This being said, hope springs eternal for Daredevil fans and Kevin Mayer, chairman of Walt Disney direct-to-consumer and worldwide division, has said that there's a possibility that Daredevil will be coming back.

Why do you think Netflix would cancel Marvel's shows? "We haven't yet discussed that, but I would say that's a possibility", Mayer told The Hollywood Reporter. "Any of the rumours that it was a Marvel decision are wrong, I think it was purely a Netflix decision". The new service, much like Netflix, will feature hours and hours of original content, as well as countless hours of content from Disney's massive vault.

Disney+ is also already set to include its own Marvel content, including March's Captain Marvel and all subsequent Marvel Studios films and an original series starring Tom Hiddleston's Loki. Mayer noted, however, that Disney "would like to have an worldwide trilogy of services", which would be made up of Disney+, Disney's ESPN+ sports streaming service and Hulu.

There are undoubtedly fans who'd prefer Disney to bring the existing Defenders - yes, even Iron Fist - to the MCU for movie duty, but having more of them on any sort of screen would be a positive thing for those who still enjoy the shows. Currently, Hulu only operates in the United States and Japan.
