As most of you know, Daredevil, along with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, have all been canceled by Netflix. With the new seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher, they’re looking to be next on the chopping block. So, the question is; Will we ever see them again? My answer is YES. I have heard a lot of back and forth about these shows moving over to Disney+; however, nothing has been confirmed.
Why should we have to settle for more television adaptions of these characters? Now I know what you’re thinking but hear me out. Strong characters, like Daredevil and The Punisher, can easily embark on their own journey on the big screen. Characters, like Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones, all may have a hard time trying to get their imprint on the Marvel blueprint. If it were up to me, I would completely scrap the other characters and focus on Daredevil and The Punisher and how they could interact with our new Avengers cast.
The fact that Daredevil and The Punisher are major characters throughout the Spider-Man comics proves that they can stand with the film characters. Spider-Man is just getting started, so a huge antagonist such as The Punisher could be huge.
I’m just going to say it, DAREDEVIL NEEDS HIS OWN FILM FRANCHISE. His character is so interesting and different from the other Marvel heroes. He has more of a disadvantage but still manages to come out on top every time. (okay not every time but you get the point) The only option is to recast the character and start from scratch. I know that the previous adaptation of Daredevil lives within the universe but only barely. There were subtle nods to the Harlem incident and the Battle Of New York but that was it. Giving Daredevil his own set of films, in my opinion, would be an opportunity to strengthen the new Avengers team and also add a different dynamic.
Sorry Charlie! We would love to have you back if Marvel allows you to graduate to the big screen!
What do you guys think? Let us know!
