Daredevil: Apparently Its Cancellation Was A NETFLIX Move, Not A Marvel Move?

Holy crap, can we not get our stories straight on this one? On the heels of the release of the amazing third season of Daredevil, it was announced that the series would not be returning to the small screen — at least not for Netflix. With this news coming following the cancelation of Luke Cage and Iron Fist, it seemed clear that this was a consolidation move from Disney.

Hell, even as someone who doesn’t tend to fall for those conspiracy theory-type explanations, the evidence was pretty damning against Disney. After all, with their streaming service on the way and them soon set to be a majority owner of Hulu, why not bring their properties home?

Well, not so fast. Amy Rutberg, who plays Marci in Daredevil and The Defenders, has since told Inverse that this move caught Marvel off guard.

“My contacts at Marvel were very surprised,” she said. “Any of the rumors that it was a Marvel decision were wrong. I think it was purely a Netflix decision. That comes from personal conversations with people high up at Marvel. They were surprised.”

Well, s**t. So, with that in mind, it looks like we’re back to square one in terms of our speculation. However, this does seem to support the data that came out ahead of Daredevil Season 3’s release that these shows were facing diminishing returns with its audience.

Then again, it is always possible that the actress’ own sources aren’t completely in line with the truth, but who can tell at this point? What do you make of all this? Do you think it was a decision from Marvel or Netflix?
