Severing their relationship with Marvel Television, Netflix officially declared the cancellation of two shows, namely, The Punisher and Jessica Jones. As anticipated as this step was, it’s still very upsetting. And we know that it’s bad when Eminem slams Netflix for the same.
Eminem Tweets On Netflix Regarding ‘The Punisher’
REGARDING YOUR CANCELLATION OF THE PUNISHER, YOU ARE BLOWING IT!!
— Marshall Mathers (@Eminem) 21 February 2019
It was earlier tonight when the singer tweeted to Netflix, showing his disapproval on them cancelling the show.
“Dear Netflix,” Eminem — real name Marshall Mathers — says in the all caps tweeted. “Regarding your cancellation of The Punisher, you are blowing it!”
Releasing a single for Sony’s Venom last year, we know that Eminem is not a stranger to genre movies. The Oscar award winner also revealed in the past that he would have probably wanted to be a comic book artist if his career in rap hadn’t worked out. He also made a couple appearances in The Punisher comics in 2009.
A statement released By Marvel Tv Head Jeph Loeb
Even after the cancellation, the Marvel Television boss, Jeph Loeb assured that the characters will live on in the future one way or the other.
“I would not be surprised if any of those things reemerged,” Loeb previously mentioned. “It depends on showrunner, it depends on availability of cast, all of those things. It’s not like we’re a doctor show where the show got canceled because of bad ratings.”
“These are shows that have very different reasons [for ending],” the producer continued. “Most of which I’m not at liberty to talk about, nor should anyone really care at the end of day.”
Both of The Punisher seasons are streaming on NETFLIX.
