Marvel Entertainment Boss Hints At “The Defenders” Continuation


Since Disney is starting its own streaming service, all Disney related shows and movies will be disappearing from Netflix, including all the Marvel series and films.

This week, we got the news of the cancellation of the final two Marvel and Netflix collaborations: Jessica Jones and The Punisher.

Executive Vice President of Marvel EntertainmentJeph Loeb, has written a letter and shared it on the Marvel website, talking about the cancelled shows and mostly about 4 shows in particular, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, a.k.a. “The Defenders”:

“It had never been done before.
Four separate television series, each with different super-talented showrunners, writers, directors, cast and crew, coming out months apart and then… they would meet in a single event series all set in the heart of New York City.
We called them The Defenders. And together we were thrilled by stories of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and even the Punisher joined in!

They said it couldn’t be done. But Marvel assembled amazing teams to write, produce, direct, edit, and score 13 seasons and 161 one-hour episodes. Take a moment and go online and look at the dazzling list of actors, writers, directors, and musicians who graced us with the very best of their craft.

Our network partner may have decided they no longer want to continue telling the tales of these great characters… but you know Marvel better than that. As Matthew Murdock’s dad once said, ‘The measure of a man is not how he gets knocked to the mat, it’s how he gets back up’.

If this isn’t a major hint that the network is going to continue the show(s), we don’t know what is. 

Would you like to see the shows continue? Let us know on social media!
