A statement this morning from the home of The Avengers and Spider-man used similar language to what the streamer signed off with to indicate that Hell’s Kitchen’s blind protector isn’t done yet on the small or even big screen. “We look forward to more adventures with the Man without Fear in the future,” the Disney-owned comic giant said Friday.
That’s a lot like “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,” which the streamer said Thursday when it announced Season 3 would be its last for Netflix.
And there was this tweet that went up soon after Deadline exclusively broke the news of Daredevil‘s demise on Netflix last night:

Which raises eyebrows that perhaps after three seasons on the streamer, the Charlie Cox-portrayed character could show up on the upcoming second season of The Punisher on Netflix or maybe in the next season of Jessica Jones. The former makes more sense as the ruthless Jon Bernthal-played vigilante was a big part of Daredevil Season 2 in 2016.
With the streamer’s cancellation of Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage in the past several weeks, Jessica Jones and The Punisher are the only Marvel series left on Netflix. Whipped up the digital flagpole soon after the big multi-series deal between Disney/Marvel and Netflix in 2013, Daredevil was the first show of that agreement, with its first season launching in 2015.
Of course, the remarks by both Marvel and Netflix could also mean this current Daredevil or a variation of the Matt Murdock character could show up on the already Marvel heavy Disney+ streaming service rolling out next year.
Either way, Marvel had a lot of nice things to say abut Cox, his castmates and everyone involved with Daredevil today. Read its full statement here:
Marvel is extremely grateful to the huge audience that loved Marvel’s Daredevil. From the moment of young Matt’s first act of heroism to the birth of Page, Murdock, & Nelson, it has been a unbelievable journey. We are incredibly proud of the amazing showrunners and writers starting with Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight, Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie and Erik Oleson, Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Vincent D’Onofrio and our casts who brought our characters to life with such excellence, and every one of the fantastic crews in NYC. We look forward to more adventures with the Man without Fear in the future.
