The Netflix/Marvel collaboration and original series “Daredevil” (sometimes listed as “Marvel’s Daredevil”) has been cancelled by the streaming service a little more than a month after its third season became available for streaming. This one is more of a surprising cancellation since it’s the most popular of the shows and marks the third of the Netflix Original Series being shutdown with “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage” being cancelled a month or so ago. Click their titles to see the notes about those cancellations and now more on “Daredevil” going away down below.
“Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix. We are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, we feel it best to close this chapter on a high note,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re thankful to showrunner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we’re grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years. 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.”
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Well with three of the shows out of the five being cancelled I think it’s pretty safe to assume that both “The Punisher” and “Jessica Jones” will be following sometime in the near future. Let’s face it, I don’t think I was alone in thinking something larger was coming when they cancelled “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage” and honestly each of those was only SO popular. “Daredevil” was another story altogether and probably the best of the whole lot of shows so finding it cancelled as well makes me think that there is something larger afoot here. There has been talk of an exclusive streaming service run by Disney so maybe all of the shows will be moving over to that looming network but who knows since the scoop on that is still very unclear. Of these three cancelled shows, “Daredevil” was my own favorite and I still need to finish the third season since I got busy. What did you think of the show and what about this news? Chime in down below of course because hearing from you is what this is all about.
It was only a few short weeks ago, during the NY Comic Con, that we shared the Season 3 trailer for Marvel’s “Daredevil” with the readership. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re going to want to get on that right away by clicking HERE. Now, at the time that this post is going live, you will be able to enjoy the full Season 3 in its entirety. Before you begin binge watching, let’s check out the poster, some premise and casting for the new season.
The Premise: The first season sees lawyer-by-day Matt Murdock use his heightened senses from being blinded as a young boy to fight crime at night on the streets of New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood as Daredevil, while uncovering a conspiracy of the criminal underworld being led by Wilson Fisk. In the second season, Murdock continues to balance life as a lawyer and Daredevil, while crossing paths with Frank Castle/Punisher, a vigilante with far deadlier methods, as well as the return of an ex-girlfriend—Elektra Natchios. In the third season, after Fisk is released from prison, Murdock, who has been missing for months following the events of The Defenders, reemerges a broken man and must decide between hiding from the world as a lawyer, or embracing his life as a hero vigilante.

The New York Comic Con is in full sway and much like what we find when SDCC is happening, there are several trailers to share with you for our mass media side of the fence. A few years ago, Netflix announced it would be offering up four singular but connected series featuring Marvel characters and everyone hoped for the best. As it stands these are all excellent entries to the larger MCU and the first one was “Daredevil”. Now, that series will find its third season premiering in the coming weeks and a full proper trailer has been revealed. Let’s watch.

By now I am hoping that you have watched the first two seasons of “Daredevil” along with the first seasons of “Jessica Jones”, “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” as a subscriber to Netflix because its all been leading up to this mini-series “The Defenders” where ALL of these mighty heroes and numerous players from across their respective shows will appear and unite against a common foe. If you have only recently subscribed to Netflix, then you have some serious binge watching to do and I recommend you keep these shows in order since much like the big screen hero counterparts, this does take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and there is referencing throughout the shows. Take a look at the official poster and the premise and casting below.
As most fans of the comic and movie media stuff we post about know, the Comic Con International: San Diego of “SDCC” is underway and will be winding down today with its fourth and final day. This convention always brings the trailers and sneak-peaks into the upcoming Fall television shows and motion pictures and as you know there is a lot coming out this year. A few months ago we shared the first trailer for the next Netflix installment of their Marvel series “The Defenders” and this is a mini-series that unites the stars of the previous shows Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. These are the Marvel Comics “Street Level” heroes and here is the second trailer for the upcoming series. Check it out.
The Premise: Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy in The Hand. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I pretty much raved about the first trailer and this just excites me all the more. I really enjoyed the other shows and hope that this keeps on coming. Most of us were skeptical at the beginning and here we are now chomping at the bit for the next go at these characters. Sure I wasn’t crazy about this being called “The Defenders” since I grew up on a different team but this dynamic sure seems to work. The question remains is will we find any of these folks in the 2018 major motion picture “Avengers: Infinity War”. Part of me says “no” because they are NOT Avengers at all but neither are the Guardians Of The Galaxy, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man and they are all in there. Only time will tell for that. “The Defenders” will consist of eight total episodes and will be available for streaming in full on August 18, 2017. Let me know what you think of the trailer down in the comments below and you can learn more about the show’s cast and characters via the official Wikipedia entry.
