The Marvel shows on the streaming platform, Netflix, have been finally confirmed to be hitting the Disney+ platform in a few locations. The entire social media ended up lighting up like a whole Christmas tree on hearing that their beloved shows like Daredevil, The Punisher, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and The Defenders would be soon hitting Disney+ in Canada this coming March. After these shows left Netflix, many Marvel fans were disappointed if they would ever make their way back to the screens on Disney’s service. It seems like this might be the case at the moment, as per MobileSyrup, fans in the US will have to wait more. For those fans who have been clamoring since the shows went off the air years ago, it is certainly a moment of some massive celebration.
Netflix’s Marvel Shows Released In Canada on Disney+!
However, this isn’t any concrete confirmation about these characters who will be making their way to the larger lore of MCU, just like Daredevil’s Charlie Cox did. The only two elements of the whole The Defenderverse to actually make their way to the MCU has been Matt Murdock in No Way Home and later, Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin in the finale of Hawkeye.
Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays the villainous Kingpin, recently spoke to Marvel News Desk about the fateful day the cast came to know that they weren’t being renewed for yet another season. The actor even said that they had known the writing was on the wall with the streaming switch-up.
“I don’t think any of us were okay,” D’Onofrio began. “I think that we were like, ‘Oh okay, we had a hit show and now it’s gone.’ But shortly after that, at same time the #SaveDaredevil groups started to rise, the cast, most of us I believe, but I know Charlie (Cox) and I for sure, and Deborah (Ann Woll), I think we started to learn the reasons why that happened. So we understood what Marvel was doing because Disney+ coming out….”
“When you’re in this business a long time like we have all been, it kind of made sense business-wise,” he added. “What didn’t make sense to us was why we wouldn’t continue that show or the idea of how that worked and how well it worked. Conceptually, I think we were disappointed but I think we all understood what was going on and it sort of was inevitable. In this business, you learn to accept things because you know its a business in the end and there’s nothing you can really do about it.”
