Daredevil TV Series Rights To Revert To Marvel In Six Months

Daredevil TV Series Rights To Revert To Marvel In Six Months

Fans of the Marvel superhero series Daredevil were disappointed when streaming service Netflix announced the show's cancellation back in November 2018, after just three seasons.

While Marvel has dominated cinemas with bog-screen adaptations of its comic characters in recent times, Daredevil - which starred actor Charlie Cox as the title character and his alter-ego Matt Murdock - marked the first time

A little over 18 months later, however, it seems there is some light at the end of the tunnel. The social media account for the #SaveDaredevil campaign (which appeared in the wake of the show's cancellation) shared a post to let fans know that Marvel Studios will once again be allowed to use Daredevil for new projects - in six months' time. Still, good news.

Posting on Instagram last Friday, the campaign wrote: "Happy #FandomWithoutFear Friday! 18 months have passed since #Daredevil was cancelled which also means 18 months since we launched the #SaveDaredevil campaign!

"We knew we'd be in this for the long haul but every day we're inspired by #MattMurdock and Daredevil fans all over the world who are in this fight with us! We look forward to the next 6 months passing quickly toward the end of the 2 year moratorium with Netflix and with your help #WeWillSaveDaredevil"

Daredevil Able To Appear In Marvel Cinematic Universe From This November

While Marvel still retains the rights to the Daredevil property, as well as the rest of The Defenders of which that character is a part, the initial agreement between the comics giant and Netflix specified that if the latter axed any of the former's superhero franchises, Marvel Studios would be unable to use the characters for exactly 18 months after the shows were cancelled.

For some reason, though, Daredevil's moratorium seems to be two years.

Maybe it's too early for us to get too excited, though. Charlie Cox doesn't seem particularly hopeful about the series continuing on Disney+, which would most likely be its new home.

"I don't feel that way, no," he told Comicbook.com when asked if he was optimistic about it being revived.

"I don't know why I don't feel that way. But, I haven't been given any reason to believe that. And, from a cynical point of view, it just feels like maybe I'm trying to protect myself, 'cause I'd love nothing more than to do it again."

Fingers crossed, eh Charlie?
