Marvel Says Daredevil Character Will 'Live On' in Future Projects

Following news that Daredevil has joined the cancelation list of Marvel TV shows over at Netflix, the streaming service has made it clear the character will play a role in future Marvel properties.

Wishful fans may hope it's the big screen, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase Four set to kick off next year, but it's more than likely Netflix is referring to Disney+, Disney's upcoming streaming service.

"While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel," Netflix said in a statement to Deadline.

The cancelation hits home hard for fans who enjoyed the recently-concluded Season 3 of the show, which ended with Bullseye being officially introduced. With Iron Fist and Luke Cage canceled as well, fans are eager to find out what the fates of Jessica Jones and The Punisher will be when they air next year. Of course, should Netflix pursue another season of The Defenders or a debut for Heroes for Hire, there is a chance Matt Murdock could appear there along with New York's other vigilantes.

It remains to be seen if this officially signals that Netflix is moving away from Marvel properties, with declining viewership cited as the reasons for previous cancelations. Recently, showrunner Erik Oleson indicated he made a pitch for Season 4, and stars such as Charlie Cox, Vincent D'Onofrio and Deborah Ann Woll all made it clear they'd love to return for a new season. As it stands, the impression is that Netflix is cleaning house on making new Marvel properties, so only time will tell.
