Netflix Cancels Marvel's Luke Cage

Mike Colter attends the premiere of the Netflix original series Marvel's

However, according to Deadline, tensions between show execs and the streaming giant have taken a nosedive, and, alas, Luke Cage is no more, which comes just days after fellow superhero series Iron Fist was also taken of the shelf.

The news was announced tonight via The Hollywood Reporter, with Netflix and Marvel releasing a joint statement addressing the matter.

"Unfortunately, "Marvel's Luke Cage" will not return for a third season".

With these issues as well demands for change in creative leadership, Marvel and Netflix were unable to come up with a deal, leading to the cancellation of Luke Cage. Netflix unexpectedly pulled the plug on a third season today. Though Daredevil's future is uncertain, Jessica Jones and The Punisher will both return for new seasons next year.

You can still watch the two seasons of Marvel's Luke Cage as well as the third season of Daredevil, which launched today, only on Netflix.

U.S. shutting down consulate for Palestinians in Jerusalem
No country's position on Israel or the Palestinians would be expected to be placed ahead of domestic national interest. Moreover, there is a strong case to be made that an Embassy move may help unlock the current peace process deadlock.

This is frankly a huge disappointment to fans of the Defenders series. "Luke is in Harlem, and so Harlem is going to be his place that he's going to have to control".

Harlem's Hero for Hire just got curved.

The third season had been being worked on for the past couple months, but due to "creative differences" and where the writer's were going with the storyline, Netflix is now canceling the series. "With Marvel and Netflix seemingly in intractable and different sides of the disputes, a harsh cancelation became the only viable exit strategy, it appears".

Star Mike Colter and showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker have yet to comment on the cancellation. But Finn Jones, star of the also-cancelled Iron Fist, showed his solidarity by posting an image on Instagram of the Iron Fist meeting the fist of Luke Cage, punctuated by two fist emojis (one black, one white) on either side of a heart.
