[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”1279″ img_size=”568×416″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Following the news that Netflix is officially severing ties with Marvel and canceling the remaining two shows that hadn’t been previously cut, The Punisher and Jessica Jones; Marvel’s Television president Jeph Loeb penned a letter for fans:
“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 148 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.
We loved each and every minute of it.
And we did it all for you — the fans — who cheered for us around the world and made all the hard work worth it.
So, Thank You!
On behalf of everyone at Marvel Television, we couldn’t be more proud or more grateful to our audience.
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.’
To be continued…!
– Jeph Loeb and all of us at Marvel Television”
Loeb’s comments are not only hope for fans, but also confirm that this was a doing of Netflix’s, which is something most of us will never understand. Daredevil launched in 2015 and has brought many fans to the streaming service, every year excited for the next installment. For now, you can watch all the seasons and look forward to Jessica Jones’s third season, which will premiere sometime in the early summer. Let us know your thoughts on this drastic event.
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
