It seems no matter how much we voice our absolute shock at the news, 'Daredevil' still won't be making a return to our screens anytime soon.
When it was announced recently that Daredevil has had his final escapade on the streets of New York City, star Charlie Cox said he was "very saddened" with the news. He also remarked, "It’s weird to think there’s a chance I won’t be playing Matt Murdock ever again."
Now, another star from 'Daredevil' has revealed that the cancellation might only be because of one sole reason; Netflix.
Amy Rutberg, who plays Foggy's on/off girlfriend Marci, has revealed that "My contacts at Marvel were very surprised. Any of the rumors that it was a Marvel decision are wrong, I think it was purely a Netflix decision.
"That comes from personal conversations with people high up at Marvel. They were surprised." She continued, "We had heard rumours we would start production as early as February 2019. It’s a little unusual to be that far ahead in the planning and cancel the show, which makes me think Netflix was laboring over whether or not to cancel it. My guess was it was not an easy decision."
It's believed that as Netflix have now cancelled three of Marvel's hit shows from its streaming platform ('Luke Cage' and 'Iron Fist' also), that those characters are now stuck in a sort-of superhero limbo. Apparently, the superheroes will not be making the switch to Disney+ anytime soon, as Netflix's deal means they own the rights to the characters for the next 18 months to two years.
Rutberg went on to say, "There is this very real contract with Netflix. I had heard 18 months, maybe it’s two years. I suppose it’s possible that Marvel could buy them out, but I have not heard so much as a whisper.”
Netflix's final two superhero jaunts will come in the New Year, with the second season of 'The Punisher' in January, and 'Jessica Jones' to follow later in 2019.
