Even after a few weeks since the cancellation of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix, fans are admittedly still shell-shocked. The streaming companies’ decision to end the show before the beginning of the fourth season came as a surprise for everyone including the cast and crew themselves.
For most, the heartbreak lies on the fact that plenty of the show’s storyline will now remain unfinished. Fortunately, one of Daredevil’s cast members has since provided a glimpse of what could have been at least for her character.
In a recent interview with Inverse, Amy Rutberg aka Marcy Stahl in the Marvel universe lamented over the fact that Marcy and Foggy’s relationship never got the ending it deserved. According to the actress, she sees Stahl eventually marrying Foggy. Sure, there would be a lot of hijinks before the wedding happens. But she is sure that it would be a happy ending for Marcy and Foggy:
“From a personal level, I would have loved to see what would have happened with Marci and Foggy. I would have liked to see them get married. There probably would have been some conflict before, but sadly none of those things happened.”
Rutberg also gushed about her experience with the cast members of Daredevil. She explains that she had such a good time and it is such a shame that the actors and their characters would not see themselves back together – at least for the time being:
“It would have been great to see now that the band was back together. It would have been great to see what happened with them. See them start the season working together and see where that went.”
There has been much speculation as to who pulled the plug on the show – Marvel or Netflix. Nevertheless, Rutberg explains that far as she knows Marvel had no idea the cancellation would be happening:
“My contacts at Marvel were very surprised. Any of the rumors that it was a Marvel decision are wrong, I think it was purely a Netflix decision. That comes from personal conversations with people high up at Marvel. They were surprised.”
This statement seems to be on par with a tweet sent out by one of Daredevil’s writers, Sam Ernst. In the aftermath of the cancellation, Ernst revealed that the announcement of Netflix’ decision was made in a room filled with season 4 plans. Everything was already laid out.
After the news, Ernst, the showrunner Erik Oleson, and a couple of Marvel execs went out to lunch to mourn the cancellation of the show. Ernst explained that like him the Marvel execs were visibly shocked:
“Had a last lunch yesterday with the Daredevil writers. Sushi provided by our Captain, @erikoleson. Marvel execs there too, just as stunned as we were. More than lunch, really: a wake. A show gets cancelled, all those characters we love die. Why I hate my job. Why I love it, too.”
Even with the outcry, there has yet to be news regarding another network picking up where Daredevil on Netflix let off.
