‘Daredevil’ cancelled on Netflix
After three seasons, Marvel’s popular show, ‘Daredevil’ was cancelled in November 2018 alongside ‘The Punisher’, ‘Jessica Jones‘, ‘Iron Fist’, ‘The Defenders’, and ‘Luke Cage’. This came as a major shock because just a few weeks before its cancellation ‘Daredevil’ released new episodes that were both critically acclaimed and loved by the audience.
“Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ will not return for a fourth season on Netflix. We are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, we feel it best to close this chapter on a high note”.
In the statement, they thanked their partners at Marvel, showrunner Erik Oleson, the writers, crew, the cast including Charlie Cox as ‘Daredevil‘, and the fans who have supported the show for years. They further mentioned that the three existing seasons of ‘Daredevil’ would remain on the streaming service for years to come and the character will live on in future projects for Marvel.
Though the cancellation left fans hopeful that in the future Disney will bring back the show on its streaming platform, Disney Plus. It was reported by “IndieWire” in 2019 that Disney would not be able to back the ‘Daredevil’ franchise due to a contract restricting the Marvel shows. For at least two years, the characters of Netflix are prohibited from appearing in any non-Netflix series or film.
Now that the rights to the character are back with Marvel and over 3,70,000 “Save Daredevil” petition signatures, could a revival or reboot happen in the future?
Charlie Cox talks about Season 4 of ‘Daredevil’
In an interview with “Comicbook”, Charlie Cox talked about a potential season 4 of ‘Daredevil’ in the future.
“I do not feel that way, no. And, I do not know why I do not feel that way. But I have not been given any reason to believe that.”
Cox also pointed out how the cast members of ‘Daredevil’ are working on different projects. That is why it will be difficult to get everyone on board, keeping in mind their schedules. He explained how when you make a television show, it is complicated. People’s schedules are so difficult, and contracts are also complicated. Hence, as an actor, when you sign a TV show, you sign six years of your life away because, if you do not do that, it becomes too complicated to try and get all these moving pieces.

According to rumours, Charlie Cox will revive his role as ‘Daredevil’ in the upcoming Tom Holland‘s ‘Spider-Man 3’ movie. Cox is rumoured to be playing the role of Peter Parker’s lawyer who would be falsely framed for the murder of Jake Gyllenhaal Mysterio. The Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige earlier considered getting She-Hulk in the movie as Peter Parker’s lawyer. But he later felt that the ‘Daredevil’ connection in the comics is much stronger.
However, confirmation news about the inclusion of ‘Daredevil’ is awaited from Marvel. The upcoming ‘Spider-Man 3’ movie is part of Marvel Studios Phase 4. ‘Spider-Man 3’ is going to feature many actors from past ‘Spider-Man’ movies.
