The cancellation of Netflix's Marvel superheroes series Daredevil is one that fans are still talking about. Following the surprise cancellation of both Iron Fist and Luke Cage, fans braced for the worst when The Man Without Fear's third season was released last October. Still, when the streaming giant broke the cancellation news a month later, it still came as a shock.
Since Daredevil is viewed by many as Netflix's top Marvel live-action series, it didn't take long for fans to setup a petition to bring the series back. #SaveDaredevil has been doing the rounds online, and now it appears as if the star of the series himself has added his name to the list of supporters.
It was only a few weeks ago that Charlie Cox backed the #SaveDaredevil movement, urging fans to sign the petition. Now, during an interview with The Playlist, the actor revealed that he himself has signed the petition -- anonymously, of course.
When asked if he had signed the #SaveDaredevil campaign, Cox revealed that he in fact had recently done so. "I wasn’t sure about adding my email because I’m not very technically savvy, and I didn’t want to suddenly put my email online," the actor said. "I don’t know if it was visible or not. But what I did do is I made a fake email for my two-year-old daughter, and she signed it [laughter]."
The petition, which can be found on Change.org, has now over 209,000 signatures, with a current goal to reach 300,000. Recently, Cox revealed that a potential Season 4 of the series would have featured even more of Wilson Bethel's Bullseye, a Season 3 highlight, making the return of the series one that fans would love to see.
Of course, there is no way to know if there are any actual active conversations to save the series over at Netflix and/or Marvel. The upcoming arrival of the Disney+ streaming service has put a bit of a question mark around Marvel and Netflix's collaboration.
Currently, only Jessica Jones and The Punisher remain in active development on the streaming service. The Punisher's second season premiered only last week, but already fans are wondering if the series is next on the chopping block.
Now available on Netflix, Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Joanne Whalley as Sister Maggie, Wilson Bethel as Benjamin Poindexter, Jay Ali as Rahul “Ray” Nadeem and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk.
