Disney Executive On The Possibility Of Reviving Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage

There was a whole lot of heartache when Netflix announced its decision to ax Marvel shows like Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. While Danny Rand's (Finn Jones) Marvel series didn't do so well during its first season on Netflix, the series improved during its second season on the site. Daredevil was also one of Marvel's most critically-acclaimed shows on the streaming platform, and many were hoping for a fourth season on Netflix.

Now, without a home for itself, it looks like Disney's upcoming streaming service might be thinking of opening its doors to Netflix's canceled Marvel TV series. Kevin Mayer, the direct-to-consumer and international relations chairman of Disney, just recently spoke in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and apart from updating followers on the Disney-Fox merger, the executive also touched on Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil.

"They are very high-quality shows," Mayer told the publication when he was asked about Disney reviving the various series, "We haven't yet discussed that, but I would say that's a possibility."

This uncertainty sounds a tad bit disappointing – fans have been hoping that Disney would have room for Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage in Disney+. Sure the Mickey Mouse House might already have shows like Star Wars: The Mandalorian, Scarlet Witch and Vision, as well as Loki, but it wouldn't hurt to have even more shows on the streaming platform.

Of course, it might take Disney some time to bring Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist to its streaming site. Netflix has a clause disallowing its various Marvel Netflix series from continuing anywhere else two years after their cancellations, so there's that to consider.

Daredevil season 3 is currently streaming on Netflix.
