Yesterday marked the two-year anniversary of when Netflix canceled Daredevil, and as we discovered shortly after that information broke, the two-year anniversary means Disney and Marvel Studios can apparently now use Daredevil once more. The unique settlement between Disney and Netflix reportedly prevented any of its preliminary batch of Marvel characters—Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, however not The Punisher—from “showing in any non-Netflix collection or movie for no less than two years after cancellation,” and that two years is now up for all of them however Jessica Jones. So what does that imply? Properly, with out trying on the authentic contracts (the “at least” factor appears annoyingly obscure), it looks like Disney may higher combine Daredevil into the MCU in future Marvel Studios initiatives and even put collectively some form of revival of the canceled Netflix present.
That’s precisely what a #ReleaseTheSnyderCut-style Twitter marketing campaign is attempting to perform, with #SaveDaredevil trending on the social media platform on Sunday as an organized group of followers shared their ideas on why the collection ought to get an opportunity to be—ahem—born once more. (That’s a Daredevil reference.) Particularly, the marketing campaign is to get Disney to deliver again this particular model of the hero and his supporting characters, with star Charlie Cox getting referenced within the posts as usually because the present itself. The marketing campaign additionally appears to be vying for a Hulu revival quite than a Disney+ one, since Disney owns a majority stake in Hulu, however the streaming service did already pull a Netflix and jettison its personal Marvel present final 12 months (not counting Helstrom, which is barely a Marvel present).
Now, all of this may in all probability nonetheless depend upon Disney and Netflix coming to some form of settlement, since Netflix nonetheless has that “at least” window to play with (and there’s an opportunity it owns the Charlie Cox model of Matt Murdock anyway, doubtlessly making this all a moot level). Additionally, if Disney needs to make a fourth season of Daredevil, it in all probability wouldn’t have even been allowed to contemplate transferring ahead with it till yesterday, which might imply no work has been executed on it, which might imply that any probability of really seeing a fourth season of Daredevil can be very far off.
That every one being stated, if this does occur, can we lastly get away from the Frank Miller crap? Hit the story arc of Daredevil’s identification getting uncovered after which him combating it in courtroom whereas wrestling with the truth that it’s true and he’s being a dick, however then possibly have him embrace the publicity and get into a few of that Mark Waid swashbuckling enjoyable. Then Wilson Bethel can come again as full-on comedian guide Bullseye and attempt to kill Karen Web page and Foggy Nelson, inflicting Daredevil to buckle below the crushing weight of his Catholic guilt—as a result of how dare he attempt to dwell his life with out consistently feeling dangerous for his each choice—however then Foggy and Karen may assist him save the day as a result of they’re all such good pals. Then Spider-Man swings by means of within the background as a result of now the present is explicitly related to the MCU. This factor writes itself, Disney! Get your shit collectively and save Daredevil!
