Marvel releases statement on DAREDEVIL cancellation

Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil

Marvel has released a statement on Netflix’s cancellation of Daredevil. The studio has been widely criticised by fans for not acting quickly to secure the future of the series. Many are speculating on potential big screen adaptions or even for the series to move internally to Disney owned network ABC.

Speaking of the cancellation Marvel said:

“Marvel is extremely grateful to the huge audience that loved Marvel’s Daredevil. From the moment of young Matt’s first act of heroism to the birth of Page, Murdock, & Nelson, it has been a unbelievable journey. We are incredibly proud of the amazing showrunners and writers starting with Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight, Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie and Erik Oleson, Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Vincent D’Onofrio and our casts who brought our characters to life with such excellence, and every one of the fantastic crews in NYC. We look forward to more adventures with the Man without Fear in the future.”

As well as the touching statement the company also tweeted a very simple image of the series main cast in tribute to their stellar performances over the past three seasons.

Here’s a reminder of Daredevil season 3.

Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil) is joined by a stellar cast including Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page) and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson). Marvel’s Daredevil is Executive Produced by series Co-Showrunners Marco Ramirez (“Sons Of Anarchy”, “Fear The Walking Dead”) and Douglas Petrie (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”, “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”, “American Horror Story”), along with Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones”), who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television.
