Despite several new Marvel TV shows recently being confirmed at San Diego Comic Con, there’s still a Hulk-sized hole where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Punisher and Iron Fist once were.
Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, has finally spoken out about the Netflix Marvel cancellations – and is teasing the as-yet-unannounced projects that could see some of the shows and characters resurrected for the Disney+ streaming service service.
“We were blindsided and the things that were to come weren’t finished yet,” Loeb told Deadline of Netflix’s decision to axe all their Marvel output.
“We weren’t ready to announce that, so there was this space in between it, so it did look like maybe we were going to go out. Then suddenly, we were arising again like the Phoenix,” he said
Loeb said that what he calls the ‘street-level’ shows, which included the likes of Daredevil and Luke Cage, will be making a comeback, “Some of those appeared on Netflix, but there are others that live in that category, which are still to come,” he confirmed.
