Netflix's Marvel shows hold a special place spot among fans due to their darker and more mature tone compared to the MCU.
This mini universe kicked off with Daredevil starring Charlie Cox and ran for there season before Netflix pulled the plug and the rights of the show and its spinoff reverted back to Disney.
Currently, Disney is busy rebooting these shows and integrating them into the larger MCU starting off with the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again with the cast of the original shows reprising their roles.
Recently show runner of Netflix's Daredevil Steven DeKnight took to X to call out Disney and Netflix and how they treated the cast and crew of the show.
Decoding 'Disney Deception'
This is not the first time that Disney has been accused of this, the studio has rebranded or canceled several of its iconic shows after its third season as a way not to pay the actors and the crew their due.
Some examples of this are shows like The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and Hannah Montana both of which were canceled after season three but had several tie-in TV movies.
While we will have to wait till the WGA and SAG strikes end to find an actual solution for this issue, Marvel fans are still looking forward to Daredevil: Born Again.
It has already been confirmed that the show will be true to the tone of the original Netflix series and several of the characters from the spinoff shows mainly Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones and Jon Bernthal's Punisher will be a part of the reboot.
The show is created by Matt Corman and Chris Ord and will be a part of the fifth phase of the MCU and will consist of 18 episodes.
The show will also introduce a new set of cast members including Michael Gandolfini, Nikki M. James, and Sandrine Holt.
Currently filming of the show, which began in March of this year has been suspended due to the ongoing Hollywood strike. The main cast of the show includes Charlie Cox, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jon Bernthal, and Sandrine Holt.
