Iron Fist was canceled. Luke Cage was cancelled. Daredevil was cancelled, and we wouldn’t be surprised if The Punisher and Jessica Jones were eventually cancelled as well based on the way things are going at Netflix. Now given how well-received some of the shows were, we wouldn’t be surprised if Disney wanted in on the action as well for their Disney+ streaming service.


However if that ever happens, it won’t be anytime soon. In a report from Variety, it has been revealed that due to an apparent clause between Netflix and Marvel/Disney, it was stated that the characters from those shows aren’t allowed to appear in non-Netflix series or films for at least two years following their official cancellation, which means that it will be at least until 2020 before we see some of those characters get their own films or shows outside of Netflix.

Based on this report, it sounds like maybe Netflix and Marvel might have reached some kind of deal to get the ball rolling. This is because Daredevil was one of Netflix’s more popular Marvel shows, and its writers seemed pretty confident that a fourth season would be greenlit and were actually surprised by the cancellation.

Plus Marvel also later released a statement regarding the cancellation in which they wrote, “We look forward to more adventures with the Man without Fear in the future.” So far The Punisher and Jessica Jones are the only shows left that haven’t been cancelled presumably because production/filming of their new seasons are already underway, which means that those characters will appear even later outside of Netflix.
