Marvel's Daredevil, or simply Daredevil, is an American web television series created for Netflix by Drew Goddard, and based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise and is the first in a series of shows that lead to The Defenders crossover miniseries.

Premise Edit

The first season sees lawyer-by-law Matt Murdock use his heightened senses from being blinded as a boy to fight crime at night on the streets of New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood as Daredevil, while uncovering a conspiracy of the criminal underworld being led by Wilson Fisk. In the second season, Murdock continues to balance life as a lawyer and Daredevil, while crossing paths with Frank Castle/ Punisher, a vigilante with far deadlier methods, as well as the return of an ex-girlfriend - Elektra Natchios. In the third season, Murdock, who has been missing for months following the events of The Defenders, reemerges a broken man and must decide between hiding from the world as a criminal lawyer, or embracing his life as a hero vigilante.

Why It Was Cancelled Edit

While it was suggested for a fourth season, Netflix decided to cancel the series and that the first three seasons would remain on the service, while the character would "live on in future projects for Marvel".
