Daredevil supporting star Amy Rutberg says it was Netflix’s call to cancel the show, not Marvel’s. Rutberg, who played Marci Stahl on the show, spoke with Inverse and shot down speculation that Marvel was responsible for the show getting canned.

“My contacts at Marvel were very surprised,” Rutberg said. “Any of the rumors that it was a Marvel decision are wrong, I think it was purely a Netflix decision. That comes from personal conversations with people high up at Marvel. They were surprised.”

Netflix announced the cancellation of the show in November, noting that the character would “live on” in future Marvel projects. It followed the cancellation earlier in the fall of both Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Rutberg’s comments were echoed by co-executive producer Sam Ernst, who said earlier this month that Marvel executives were in the writer’s room when it was announced that the show was ending and were shocked.
