Back in July, I shared the nominees for the 45th Annual Saturn Awards and you actually don’t need to refer to that post since I’ve decided to not only list the winning names with this kind of narrative but also those who each honoree went head to head against. I think that it makes this kind of post a little more interesting and since this is a lengthy read, I will get right on down to business. Take a look at who won and who didn’t and know that I shall return at the close with some additional editorial viewpoints. Remember that this is an event curated by The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. Enjoy.

The Netflix/Marvel collaboration and original series “Daredevil” (sometimes listed as “Marvel’s Daredevil”) has been cancelled by the streaming service a little more than a month after its third season became available for streaming. This one is more of a surprising cancellation since it’s the most popular of the shows and marks the third of the Netflix Original Series being shutdown with “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage” being cancelled a month or so ago. Click their titles to see the notes about those cancellations and now more on “Daredevil” going away down below.
“Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix. We are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, we feel it best to close this chapter on a high note,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re thankful to showrunner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we’re grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years. While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel.”
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Well with three of the shows out of the five being cancelled I think it’s pretty safe to assume that both “The Punisher” and “Jessica Jones” will be following sometime in the near future. Let’s face it, I don’t think I was alone in thinking something larger was coming when they cancelled “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage” and honestly each of those was only SO popular. “Daredevil” was another story altogether and probably the best of the whole lot of shows so finding it cancelled as well makes me think that there is something larger afoot here. There has been talk of an exclusive streaming service run by Disney so maybe all of the shows will be moving over to that looming network but who knows since the scoop on that is still very unclear. Of these three cancelled shows, “Daredevil” was my own favorite and I still need to finish the third season since I got busy. What did you think of the show and what about this news? Chime in down below of course because hearing from you is what this is all about.
Remember this poster? If you don’t that’s alright because it was something that I brought up a few weeks ago regarding the upcoming Netflix Original Series “Marvels Daredevil”.
Today I am excited because the first teaser trailer was released for the series and to be a good comic geek citizen I am sharing it with you below so please check it out below. The series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin.
