Many Marvel fans were left disappointed after it was announced that Netflix had decided to cancel the Daredevil TV series on its platform, along with other Marvel TV series such as Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Since then, many had been hoping for the series to be revived, with hopefully its original cast starring in the show.
It remained a pipe dream to many for months but it was recently on the social media account for the Save Daredevil fan campaign that it was announced Marvel Studios only has six months remaining till it is able to regain the rights to the Daredevil franchise.
For those that are confused, a clause in a deal made between the Studio and Netflix states that Marvel Studios will have to refrain from using the characters from the cancelled series till 2 years after the cancellation.
However, it is unclear what plans Marvel Studios has in store for Daredevil, as well as whether Charlie Cox, who played Matt Murdock in the Netflix show’s first three seasons will be returning. Cox himself is not optimistic about the show continuing on Disney+, saying “I don’t feel that way, no. And, I don’t know why I don’t feel that way. But, I haven’t been given any reason to believe that. And, from a cynical point of view, it just feels like maybe I’m trying to protect myself, ’cause I’d love nothing more than to do it again.”
Cox has also recently debunked rumours of his involvement in the upcoming Spider-Man 3 movie, or at the very least it will not involve him. Whether the role of Daredevil will really be recast, and if a fourth season will be developed, remains to be seen.
