  • Netflix pulls the plug on 'Daredevil'

After three full seasons the popular streaming giant has chose to pull the plug on everyone's favorite blind action hero.

Iron Fist and Luke Cage both bit the dust earlier this year, with Daredevil - the first to appear on the service and longest-serving show - being given the axe today.

Netflix is calling it quits on Marvel's Daredevil.

The existing three seasons will remain on Netflix, and the streamer said Matt Murdock and his crime-fighting alias Daredevil "will live on in future projects for Marvel".

While the Disney-Netflix rivalry makes the Daredevil situation a bit more complicated, a little extra fan engagement never hurts.

It's unclear whether those "future projects" will include Charlie Cox's Daredevil as well as Jon Bernthall's The Punisher and Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones.

While possibly no one outside of the cast and crew will miss Iron Fist, Daredevil fans aren't taking the news lying down.

Those comments sparked selling on fears the Fed would continue to hike rates at a rapid clip, not yet priced into the market. Powell has been gradually raising rates since he was confirmed to his position by Trump in January.

Another Netflix-Marvel series bites the dust.

In the last season, Marci and Foggy looked like they were on their way to having a happy life together.

Variety notes the decision not to move ahead with more Daredevil comes as Disney, which owns Marvel Entertainment, prepares to launch its own streaming service.

The show that kicked off Marvel and Netflix's ambitious series of interconnected superhero shows has come to an untimely end.

Unfortunately, what makes all of this hard for Marvel fans is the massive amount of uncertainty facing the future of these characters. Who knows? There could be a new Marvel show at Disney+ down the line bringing some of those characters back, or even some super-cameos in the upcoming two seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Only The Punisher remains on Netflix.

Naturally, fans are also disappointed by this because, while there have been dips in viewership, there have been improvements to these shows (sans JJ), and it seems that was all for nothing, because Disney wants to take over yet another place in media. This news does not mean that these characters are gone forever and let's keep our fingers crossed that we will see Marci and company somewhere down the road.
