X-Men-Daredevil_season_3_marvel_netflix_bullseye.jpgIn a recent series of posts, Daredevil producer Sam Ernst stated that he was unaware of the show’s upcoming cancellation.

In a pair of Tweets that he posted on Thursday and today he first seemed upset that the work that they did for the fourth season would never see the light of day. The team apparently had a lot of cool stuff in the work that they wanted to share with the fans:

Man, so weird to be in the Daredevil writers room today, getting the news that we’re cancelled. On the walls were an entire season 4 laid out – and it was so f***g cool. So many moments we wanted the fans to see… Sigh, this business.

Earlier today he talked about the lunch that he had with the series’ writers and how it seemed more akin to a wake. He also mentioned the love/hate relationship he has with the business:

Had a last lunch yesterday with the Daredevil writers. Sushi provided by our Captain, @erikoleson. Marvel execs there too, just as stunned as we were. More than lunch, really: a wake. A show gets cancelled, all those characters we love die. Why I hate my job. Why I love it, too.

Daredevil was sadly the latest Marvel Netflix show to be canceled. Following on the heals of Iron Fist and Luke Cage, the show was unexpectedly axed during the weekend. The actual reasoning behind it is unknown but the ratings for all three shows reportedly dropped as the series went on and may have had something to do with it. Many, however, are also speculating that it has something to do with the upcoming Disney+ streaming service and not wanting Disney owned content on a business rival. Only time, however, will give us any real answers to these questions.

What did you all make of Daredevil’s cancellation? We’re you hoping for a fourth season? Would you like to see it picked up elsewhere? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Daredevil Season 3 stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Wilson Bethel, Jay Ali, and Lesley Ann Warren.

Missing for months, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) reemerges a broken man, putting into question his future as both vigilante Daredevil and lawyer Matthew Murdock. But when his archenemy Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is released from prison, Matt must choose between hiding from the world, or embracing his destiny as a hero.

Daredevil Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we learn it.

‘Captain Marvel’ Funko Toys Confirm Carol Danvers’ Cat Will Appear

Captain Marvel Brie Larson Carol Danvers Kevin FeigeWith just about four months away from the release of Captain Marvel, Funko has now revealed its upcoming line of Pop! Vinyl Figures that are tied-in to the highly-anticipated film that features Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the titular heroine and perhaps the most powerful character in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The reveal of this new line of Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures show off some of the characters set to appear in the film, one of which includes Carol Danvers’ feline companion Goose the Cat.

The name of our heroine’s cat may come as a surprise to fans of the comics because in previous incarnations, Captain Marvel’s cat is named Chewie and is actually part of the Flerken species.

You can check out two collectible Funko figures of Goose the Cat in the gallery down below. You can start viewing the images by clicking “Next”.

Are you excited to see Carol Danvers’ Goose the Cat in the film? What do you make of the new name choice instead of Chewie? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news in the MCU.

Here is the synopsis for the film:

Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.  Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
