Just one day after the news was revealed that Daredevil is no more at Netflix, Marvel is official chiming in with some of their own thoughts.

Take a look below at the statement the company released, which offers plenty of support for the show’s cast and crew:
“Marvel is extremely grateful to the huge audience that loved Marvel’s Daredevil … From the moment of young Matt’s first act of heroism to the birth of Page, Murdock, & Nelson, it has been a unbelievable journey. We are incredibly proud of the amazing showrunners and writers starting with Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight, Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie and Erik Oleson, Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Vincent D’Onofrio and our casts who brought our characters to life with such excellence, and every one of the fantastic crews in NYC. We look forward to more adventures with the Man without Fear in the future.”
We don’t necessarily think that you can read this statement as much of a sign that Daredevil will for sure be coming back elsewhere, but it certainly does mean that Marvel does have some sort of plans for the character down the line. Even if it’s not something that we see right away, it’s possible that this character could get either a big-screen resurrection or land elsewhere. If Disney does ever figure out the ideal landing spot for a show with this tone, we could very well see it back in some capacity.
Personally, we think that there is a perfect venue out there in FX, given that this is a part of the massive Fox acquisition and with that, this marks a chance for Daredevil to exist again on a home that would allow for it to be as dark as the source material requires. This network already has one very-dark superhero property already in Legion, so why not go ahead and give it another? It’d probably be an adjustment for people to start watching this show weekly with commercials when they are so used to not doing that, but isn’t this still better than not getting any more of the series at all?
Anyhow, that is our speculation on the subject, but Marvel is going to do whatever they’re going to do. Maybe they will find a way to factor in Daredevil to an upcoming movie; the character is probably too dark to either move over to Agents of SHIELD / its own ABC show or the upcoming Disney+ streaming service.
