Twitter on fire as Netflix cancels Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’

Yet the axe came from Netflix today, as Daredevil has been cancelled after a three-season run.

After rave reviews for season 3 of the Web series, Netflix has reportedly cancelled any upcoming seasons for Marvel's Daredevil in a surprising turn of events. The cancellation of fellow Netflix show Iron Fist was, at first, fairly predictable - after all, out of all the Netflix Marvel TV series, it boasted the smallest following and the worst critical reception. Both have new seasons in the pipeline that are now slated to air on Netflix as planned, according to Deadline's sources.

Unlike the other Netflix-Marvel series, Daredevil's run has been more or less consistent thanks to a near ideal mix of plot, dialogue, fight scenes, and actors such as newcomer Charlie Cox and TV veteran Vincent D'Onofrio. Now, just weeks later, it's dropped the hammer on Daredevil, the MCU series that started it all. Which season of the Marvel Netflix series has been your favorite so far?

United States life expectancy drops, overdoses climb - govt report
Since 2013, the number of overdose deaths associated with fentanyls and similar drugs has grown to more than 28,000, from 3,000. Death rates rose in particular for adults ages 25 to 44. "Life expectancy is improving in many places in the world".

Disney is set to launch its own Disney Plus streaming service in 2019, featuring a host of new Marvel series. Of course, it does hint at Disney's much-leaked and much-awaited streaming service, perhaps a pain point between the two former allies. Then surprising most, Luke Cage was cancelled even though almost half of the scripts had been written for a third season. Fans were optimistic about Daredevil's future after showrunner Eric Oleson tweeted on November 16 that he had pitched Netflix on a potential fourth season of the show, nearly two weeks before the official cancelation was announced. With the crossover miniseries The Defenders all but confirmed to be a one-and-done effort, and not even a rumble of a third season renewal for Jessica Jones, chances are we'll be writing up another one of these articles for the Krysten Ritter-led noir superhero show very soon as well.

The conspiracy theory goes that in order to bring all their properties under one streaming roof, Marvel are simply letting their contracts with Netflix expire and not pushing for renewal. We don't know, but you're free to speculate along with us in the comments below.
