Will The Marvel Netflix Shows Be Saved By Hulu Or FX?

Published

The Marvel Netflix shows were once the peak of superhero comic adaptations. Starting in 2015 with the first season of Daredevil, they lasted four years before unceremoniously getting canceled. None of the production teams were informed of their cancellation and were even starting plans for their next seasons. Now that Netflix has officially canceled all of them, what will happen these shows?

Will They Move To Hulu?

There is the potential that all the Marvel Netflix shows could move to Hulu. This may seem odd to many, but in actual fact makes a whole lot of sense. Hulu is actually owned by the TV company, ABC. This channel is known for producing several Marvel shows including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ABC is owned by Disney, which is why despite mediocre rating, S.H.I.E.L.D. has yet to go off the air.

Hulu themselves, produce several Marvel shows including Runaways. This would be the best home for the Marvel Netflix shows as they all were very grim and gritty. That kind of show cannot be broadcast on normal television and is usually regulated to expensive cable channels or streaming services.

Will They Move To FX?

The other option is that the Marvel Netflix shows will move to the channel FX. Originally owned by Fox before the soon to be final deal with Disney. This will allow the company that owns the channel and the properties to put it out for all the fans. The problem as mentioned before is the rating of these shows.

While FX has had very brutal TV series before, they were never to the level that Netflix allowed Marvel to get away with. Considering the cancellation of Legion, one of their most acclaimed shows, they may be looking for something to get them more viewers. So who knows.

What Happened Exactly?

Netflix and Disney signed a deal nearly five years ago to produce these adaptations. However, Disney now wants to get into the streaming service like everyone else. Using the might of their Marvel properties, they have already announced TV shows featuring Loki and Scarlet Witch.

Jeph Loeb, who is in charge of Marvel’s television shows, has remained hopeful. Specifically, he has made mention that The Defenders might return in some capacity in the realm of television. Let’s hope one of these things come true, as these shows with these actors were extremely accurate to their comic book source material.
