'Daredevil' sets high benchmark for other Marvel series on Netflix's streaming space
Out of the five Marvel series that Netflix started only three remain - 'Daredevil', 'The Punisher' and 'Jessica Jones'
It has overall been a bit of a bad month for Marvel shows on Netflix with the streaming giant axing two original shows 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage'.
But there is still one Marvel series that stands out among the rest. It is none other than 'Daredevil' that premiered its season three just last week on Netflix. It also happens to be the best season of the Marvel-Netflix shows to date.
Especially with the entry of Bullseye, a new enemy and iconic villain in the Marvel universe, the return of everyone's favorite Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and the struggle to find his identity and faith, this season has definitely set a high benchmark for the rest of Marvel's series on Netflix.
Out of the five Marvel series that Netflix started, only three remain, including 'Daredevil', 'The Punisher' and 'Jessica Jones'. It was recently revealed that the other two, 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage', have been canceled. Though 'Iron Fist' had quite a bad start in its first season, it improved quite a bit in the second season, but that did not help with viewer ratings, and the same happened with 'Luke Cage'. Neither of the shows was viewed as much as expected, which is unusual for a company like Marvel.
If one takes a deep look into the reasons as to why these two shows may have been canceled, the main reason that stands out is 'Daredevil'. The series was the first among Marvel's series on the streaming giant. And from the time it premiered till date, though it had a slightly bad season two, the show had set a high bar with the storyline and viewer ratings that no other Marvel show could stand up to.
And this also proves that no matter how many new shows Marvel may churn out, nothing would match upto the level of 'Daredevil'.
Now that 'Jessica Jones' has been renewed for its third season and 'The Punisher' renewed for its second, there is still no news if 'Daredevil' will be renewed for the fourth season. Even if the show does get canceled like 'Luke Cage' and 'Iron Fist', this will definitely still be the best series that Marvel had on the streaming giant.
But fans are not ready to lose hope, as they are still anticipating that 'Daredevil' will be renewed for its fourth, especially with the season's end leaving a plot for the next season. If you are someone who has already watched all 13 episodes of the third season that premiered last week on Netflix, you would have noticed that it ends with hope for Matt, Foggy and Karen, especially with Matt now having an estranged mother and his sister Maggie back in his life.
Here's hoping that Netflix takes a look into the viewer ratings of 'Daredevil' and grace fans with another season.
