It's always to difficult to see a series go on such a high note; particularly, when its end occurs so abruptly like in the case of Netflix's Daredevil. Acting as the godfather series to Marvel's Netflix universe, it was often identified as not only one of stronger of the Netflix Marvel shows (i.e. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher), critically, but also (arguably) one of the stronger Marvel properties overall - movie or otherwise. This past season of the series (its third) was no exception in terms of awesomeness - seeing the debut of iconic Daredevil villain, Bullseye, and the further development of fan-favorite series antagonist, Kingpin.
Now, likely do the Disney's purchase of 20th Century Fox, the series got the boot on the Netflix's streaming service, leaving its future up in the air. Considering this uncertainty regarding the show, it can be bittersweet to think about what might have been had the series remained, especially in lieu of of the comments made by series regular, Amy Rutberg, about the possible fourth season production start time.
When asked by Inverse about the unexpected cancellation of the series, the actress had the following to say:
"We had heard rumors we would start production as early as February 2019. It’s a little unusual to be that far ahead in the planning and cancel the show, which makes me think Netflix was laboring over whether or not to cancel it. My guess was it was not an easy decision… My contacts at Marvel were very surprised. Any of the rumors that it was a Marvel decision are wrong, I think it was purely a Netflix decision. That comes from personal conversations with people high up at Marvel."
So does the prospect of Daredevil starting production before its unfortunate cancellation make you more or less disappointed in what could have been? Let me know in the comments...
