As it is, Feige’s “never say never” comment should at least bode well for the future of Marvel’s Netflix universe. The aforementioned slate of series had its own solid fan base over the years, with them even creating their own grassroots campaign to save the Charlie Cox-led Daredevil series from the streaming service.
In an interview with Deadline, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was asked about the potential revival of Marvel’s Netflix shows like Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Feige pointed out that the main focus of the studio right now is the shows that were announced during San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and on Disney Investor Day, but he admitted that he will “never say never about anything.”
Well, certainly you’ve seen what we announced at Comic-Con a year and a half ago and on Disney Investor Day a few weeks ago, so that’s our focus. But I’ve been at Marvel long enough to never say never about anything.
In a way, this remark from Feige should further motivate the dedicated fans to keep their support for the Defenders universe, and a previous rumor may indicate that the effort is working.
