Reason Why Netflix Cancelled Marvel’s Luke Cage ‘Reportedly’ Revealed

Reason For

"I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character, and I thank you wonderful fans", he wrote alongside a photo of him with his newborn. Those creatives had apparently been crafting stories, reviewing notes and feedback from Marvel Television and Netflix brass, and polishing up scripts for roughly six months prior to the series' cancellation.

Looks like it's a not-so-sweet Christmas for the hero of Harlem.

When Luke Cage Season 1 premiered in September 2016, the show received monumental buzz, with over 300,000 posts made about it across Twitter and Instagram.

Unfortunately, Marvel's Luke Cage will not return for a third season.

Meanwhile, Iron Fist star Finn Jones also shared a message of solidarity with his Defenders co-star, which will no doubt further fuel speculation that Netflix could combine the two cancelled Marvel shows into a Heroes for Hire series.

Coincidentally, the initial "Luke Cage" season two trailer features Rakim's "I Ain't No Joke" classic. It's an interesting move for Netflix to cancel the only minority character in their Marvel lineup.

As reported byThe Hollywood Reporter, the reasons for the cancellation of Luke Cage came down to creative differences.

"I think in order to avoid being a broken record, we're going to have to find a Matt Murdock that at least initially has a slightly different attitude toward the people that he loves, and toward himself, and toward God", he said.

A new report from Business Insider has revealed data suggesting Netflix's remaining Marvel series could also be in danger of cancellation due to waning interest of the streaming service's superhero shows.

According to Deadline, Netflix moved to kill Luke Cage following tension that began rising at the start of October. Whether this potential spin-off will air on Netflix or the new Disney platform remains to be seen.

This Luke Cage cancelation comes after a similar decision for Iron Fist. Hit the comments to dish and discuss all your unfiltered commentary.
