Daredevil actress Amy Rutberg — who portrayed Marci Stahl, a lawyer and the college girlfriend of Elden Henson's Foggy Nelson on the series — recently opened up to Inverse about the superhero show getting the ax shortly after debuting its third season on Netflix. While some threw their fists in the air and pressed Marvel for answers as to why a series as well-liked as Daredevil would ever be cancelled out of the blue, it may not have been the studio's decision.
According to Stahl, Netflix is to blame for Daredevil's cancellation, not Marvel, as Marvel bigwigs were just as shocked as fans were to hear the news. "My contacts at Marvel were very surprised. Any of the rumors that it was a Marvel decision are wrong, I think it was purely a Netflix decision. That comes from personal conversations with people high up at Marvel. They were surprised," Rutberg stated. "We had heard rumors we would start production [on season 4] as early as February 2019. It's a little unusual to be that far ahead in the planning and cancel the show, which makes me think Netflix was laboring over whether or not to cancel it. My guess was it was not an easy decision." At least we have season 2 of The Punisher coming February 2019!
