In a recent series of posts, the showrunner of Daredevil‘s third season, Erik Oleson, reacted to the series cancellation in a series of heartfelt Tweets.
At first he talked about how certain jobs are just paycheck jobs and how this one was different. He seemed in awe as he talked about being able to work with the cast and being able to collaborate with them:
Sometimes a gig is just a paycheck. When we’re lucky, it’s so much more.
There was something magical about working on #Daredevil Season 3.
We all felt it.
It was a dream to show up for work.
To write for and collaborate with Charlie and Vincent, Deb and Elden, Wilson and Jay and Joanne and the rest of our insanely talented cast…
He then talked about how fun it was to come up with these stories and had nothing but praise for the writing staff:
It was just plain fun to break stories and draft scripts alongside writers who learned from and supported each other, who made me a better writer and became like family.
Sam, Dara, Jim, Tamara, Sonay, Lewaa, Tonya, Sarah, Dylan.
He then talked about the crew and how much they taught him during the show’s production:
And don’t even get me started about our crew. Who taught me so much and made filming the impossible look easy. Who captured the quietest of character moments with the same expertise as they did epic 12 minute, one-shot stunt sequences…
Not to leave out the tireless Post team and passionate editors, the genius sound design team, patient VFX team who spent weeks laboring over single frames, and amazing composer and music team.
Seriously — I’m still pinching myself that I got to be a part of this.
He ended the thread by thanking the producers at Marvel and Netflix and the fans for making it all possible:
And I will be forever grateful to Jeph and Karim and Tom, Devon and Jordanna, Dan and Joe @Marvel
And to Allie, Kris and Penelope @Netflix
And to all the #Daredevil fans who have made running this show the most fun experience of my career.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

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.

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
With 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.
