Daredevil Was Cancelled Because Of Disney+ Confirms D'Onofrio

Vincent D’Onofrio who plays Wilson Fisk has confirmed that Daredevil was cancelled because of Disney+. You’ll all remember that despite being very successful and critically acclaimed, Daredevil on Netflix was cancelled after Season 3. At the time many fan wondered whether Disney+ becoming a service was the main reason for this. Why would Disney want some of their shows on a competing platform? However it was Netflix who cancelled the show officially with no comments from Marvel Studios so we did wonder.

D’ Onofrio recently chatted with Marvel News Desk, you can find the transcription of what was said below, courtesy of Murphy’s Multiverse.

“I don’t think any of us were okay. I think that we were like, ‘Oh okay, we had a hit show and now it’s gone.’ You know, at the same time the group #SaveDaredevil started to rise, we started to learn the reasons why that happened and so we understood what Marvel was doing because Disney+ coming out.”

“You know when you’re in this business a long time like we have all been, it kind of made sense business-wise. What didn’t make sense to us was why we wouldn’t continue that show or the idea of how that worked and how well it worked. Conceptually, I think we were disappointed but I think we all understood what was going on and it was sort of was inevitable. In this business you learn to accept things because you know it’s a business in the end and there’s nothing you can really do about it.”

Rumors are that D’Onofrio and Cox will show up here and there across a few shows or movies. That’s before we get to a new Daredevil project once more. I hope when we do, the other cast members return. I would love to see Vanessa, Foggy, Karen and Bullseye all keep the same actors from the Netflix show. What do you think of this news as Vincent D’Onofrio confirms that Daredevil was cancelled because of Disney+? Thoughts below as always.
