Daredevil Rights Will Revert to Marvel Studios in Six Months

June 4, 2020 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

While Marvel’s Daredevil rights are still restricted by the Netflix MCU series, that situation will change in six months. As you may recall, Marvel and Disney’s deal with Netflix for the five series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Punisher) had clauses preventing the characters from appearing in any non-Netflix series or film for at least two years after cancellation. And as the #SaveDaredevil Instagram account notes, that time is almost up.

The account, which has been pushing for the Charlie Cox-led show to be revived, posted a picture noting that the show has been off the air for 18 months so there are only six months to go. The caption noted, “We knew we’d be in this for the long haul but every day we’re inspired by #MattMurdock and Daredevil fans all over the world who are in this fight with us! We look forward to the next 6 months passing quickly toward the end of the 2 year moratorium with Netflix and with your help #WeWillSaveDaredevil.”

It should be noted that the hold on each show is specific based on when the shows were cancelled. Iron Fist was cancelled in October of 2018, followed a week later by Luke Cage. Daredevil was cancelled in November. Jessica Jones and The Punisher were cancelled in February of 2019.
