Those disappointed by the show's cancellation have now launched the #SaveDaredevil campaign, the goal of which is to rally like-minded fans to voice their discontent Daredevil's cancellation by writing to Marvel, signing their petition and continuing to spread their message on social media.
At the time of writing, the #SaveDaredevil Change.org petition has over 100,000 signatures, with a current goal of 150,000. Daredevil star Vincent D'Onofrio, who played series antagonist Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, has already voiced his support for the campaign on Twitter.
"Thousands of ans are uniting to take a stand against Daredevil's untimely and undeserved cancellation," the campaign's official homepage reads. "Will you join us in this fight?"
Additionally, the #SaveDaredevil website features various channels through which fans can contact Marvel Entertainment directly. The site makes it clear that those who do write to Marvel should "include positive commentary about Season 3, remind them S3 left many stories and avenues open to explore and emphasize that we want the same cast, crew, writers and showrunner." The site also includes sample letters for petitioners to send to Marvel.
There is also a sub-campaign called #OperationNapkins, which encourages fans to send napkins with "Nelson, Murdock & Page" written on them to Marvel HQ in New York City as a reference to the ending of Daredevil Season 3. Once again, they stress that those who send napkins keep their additional messages positive and encouraging.
The site also includes contact information for Netflix officials, as well as ways to contact Hulu to potentially convince them to pick up the series (specifically, with the same cast, crew and story.) Contact information for Disney officials will also be added soon, according to the site. Finally, the site offered pre-made #SaveDaredevil graphics are available for fans to share over social media.
At this time, it is unclear exactly how Marvel and Netflix will respond to the campaign, if at all. Nevertheless, the fact remains that the fans of Marvel's first Netflix series are not ready to give it up without a fight.
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.
