A new collection of fan posters for Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame emulate the look of the recently released #AvengeTheFallen posters in order to pay tribute not to fallen Marvel heroes, but to fallen Marvel television series.
For the uninitiated, the #AvengeTheFallen posters individually showcase the many heroes who are a part of the Avengers lineup heading into Endgame, with those who survived Thanos' Decimation at the end of Avengers: Infinity War being shown in color and those who did not depicted in black-and-white.
Playing off this, the #SaveDaredevil Twitter account posted a custom black and white Endgame poster featuring Charlie Cox's Daredevil, a reference to the fact that the character's popular Netflix series was canceled late last year following its third season, as well as the continuing fan efforts to get the show renewed. Fittingly, the poster's caption features Captain America's now famous trailer line of, "Some people move on. But not us."
In a follow-up post, the #SaveDaredevil account also paid tribute to the rest of Marvel's Netflix heroes with a collection of #AvengeTheFallen posters for Jon Bernthal's Punisher, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Mike Colter's Luke Cage and Finn Jones' Iron Fist.
These posters are accompanied by a caption that reads, "In honor of our other fallen Defenders," a reference to the crossover limited series The Defenders, which featured all of Marvel's main Netflix heroes, save for the Punisher.
Of course, in addition to Daredevil getting axed, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Punisher and Jessica Jones were also recently canceled by Netflix, with the upcoming third season of Jessica Jones set to mark the end of Netflix's active involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Given the fact that Netflix's mass cancellation of their Marvel properties began not too long after the release of Infinity War, it soon became an inside joke that Thanos was to blame for the "death" of the shows. Just like the on-screen Avengers mourning their fallen comrades, the fans of Marvel's street-level heroes are not content with saying goodbye without a fight.
