Mike Colter Reacts to 'Luke Cage's Cancellation

With mounting, behind-the-scenes tensions between Marvel and Netflix, a cancellation seemed like the only option in the end. Luke Cage, on the other hand, had a successful first season and an entertaining second season.

After a surprise cancellation that followed the admittedly less-surprising cancellation of Iron Fist, the forces behind Luke Cage's departure from Netflix have become clearer. Along with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and The Punisher, Cage helped protect the streets of NY at a much smaller level than the Avengers. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem's Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series. Well, Matt Murdock earned nothing but stellar reviews for his admittedly bleak third installment, but this mass Netflix exodus serves as a pointed reminder that no series is safe from Disney's axe, as the Mouse House prepares to get its ducks in a row ahead of the aforementioned streaming service booting online sometime next year. I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character.

While the decline in interest for both Marvel's Daredevil and Marvel's Jessica Jones isn't as high as it is for Luke Cage and Iron Fist, the data reveals strong declines for both the Devil of Hell's Kitchen and Jessica Jones. Now, a new report suggests a decline in social media buzz may reflect the reasoning behind Netflix's decision. Now it's "Luke Cage". Or are you covering your eyes dreading news of another Marvel canceled Netflix show? "It exemplifies herorics, sassy banter, great music, and family fun", fan Luke Hunter's Change.org petition reads.

While there's more clarity regarding Luke Cage's cancellation, Netflix remained rather mum about why Iron Fist was kicked to the curb. "We must fight to save our hero of Harlem as he fights for us". Fans are also hopeful that a Heroes for Hire series will come to fruition. Since the shock of both cancelations hit, Marvel fans have rallied behind Luke Cage and Iron Fist to petition the streaming service to resurrect both shows.
