Unmasking the Daredevil
Actor Charlie Cox stars as Matt Murdock aka the Daredevil; a visually impaired lawyer-by-day and a masked vigilante by night. The shooting of the series takes place in New York City, in areas which look like Hell’s Kitchen.
All the episodes of Season 1 Daredevil were released in its entirety in April 2015. The second season was injected to the platform in March 2016. Both the seasons were positively received rekindling the third season in July 2016. Season 3 of The Daredevil premiered on Netflix in October 2018.
Subsequently, Netflix ordered a spin-off series titled The Punisher orbiting on Bernthal’s character Frank Castle aka Punisher.
Daredevil Season 4 Cancelled
Daredevil Season 4 was cancelled by the streaming giant in November 2018. The show was cancelled due to the launch of another streaming service, Disney+ which will now host Marvel’s biggest hits.
Despite the news, neither Netflix nor Disney+ have whispered any updates on Season 4 of Daredevil keeping their fans waiting in the darkness.
According to Variety, another reason why Daredevil Season 4 was stalled was due to its high cost of production. Apparently, the show cost a whopping $200 million in a span of three years. Hence, the burden of the exorbitant show could not be carried forward for long.
Why Daredevil Is Better Than Other Superhero Show
Today, even though we may have lost a gem, Daredevil continues to be the best superhero show as juxtaposed to others. ‘Why daredevil is the best superhero’ still ranks on Google’s top searches. What Netflix’s Daredevil was offering, beat the living hell out of both Marvel and DC Comics. And, it’s evident by the dominant ratings.
Marvel fans were sure let down when the horn-headed blind crimefighter, easily the most popular MCU Netflix shows, Daredevil got cancelled only weeks after the third season was massively appreciated.
Certainly, it wasn’t the low ratings or the lack of popularity due to which Daredevil was cancelled. Complications arose when Disney+ stepped in, causing a stir for the show.
