Marvel Blindsided: Not Happy About Netflix Cancellations

With Fox being bought out by Disney in 2018, the rights to the Marvel franchise went to Disney. At the time, Marvel still had shows like Luke Cage, Daredevil, and the Punisher among others streaming on Netflix. Disney had only just announced at the time that they were going to start a streaming service of their own (Disney+), and it’s unclear whether or not this announcement triggered Netflix to pull the plug on the Marvel series shows.

Regardless of why Netflix pulled the plug, Marvel was not expecting it, or at least not expecting it so soon. Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb had this to say. 

“The hardest part was while the situation at Netflix, which I really can’t go into other than to say that we were blindsided and the things that were to come weren’t finished yet. We weren’t ready to announce that, so there was this space in between it, so it did look like maybe we were going to go out. Then suddenly, we were arising again like the Phoenix.”

The Marvel shows will land back on Disney+ when it drops this November, however it doesn’t seem like they’re thrilled about how it all ended with the streaming giant Netflix.
