Iron Fist isn’t the only Marvel series getting the axe. Deadline reports Netflix has cancelled Marvel’s Luke Cage after two seasons.
The superhero drama stars Mike Colter as Luke Cage, a Harlem-based superhero who protects his neighborhood with his super strength and impenetrable skin. The cast also includes Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, Erik LaRay, Rosario Dawson, Alfre Woodard, Mustafa Shakir, Gabrielle Dennis, Jeremiah Craft, Frank Whaley, and Justin Swain.
Although Netflix has not revealed a reason for cancelling Marvel’s Luke Cage, Deadline says the parties involved could not “reach a deal on how to move forward.”
See Mike Colter’s reaction below:
I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character, and I thank you amazing fans. As one door closes, another has opened, with the birth of my daughter this week. A lot of great memories. Time to make more. Always forward, forward always pic.twitter.com/Dvv4YOBeEE

What do you think? Are you a fan of Marvel’s Luke Cage? Are you sad to see the series go?
I am devastated that the show has been canceled I love all Marvel and that is one reason I got Netflix so
I could see shows that aren’t on other channels. I hated that Iron Fists was also cancel. Come on people these are great shows. Not happy but as usual the networks don’t care what we like. Thank for nothing.
What a load of garbage this is!!! Iron Fist was trash but Luke Cage didn’t deserve the axe.
The second season of Iron Fist was way better. In fact, it was the best season of all the shows, including Daredevil and the Punisher.
Disney is Probably just not renewing it so they can move it over to their Streaming Service. Maybe We will get more Seasons once They move everything over to their service and of course make us pay for yet another Streaming Service. So Now we got Netflix, Hulu, DC, Amazon, Disney and a whole lot more coming. It is pretty much Big Corporations Moving to Streaming and Milking us for even more and more money. They will of course slowly introduce ads and BAM Online Cable Packaged As a Streaming Service.
WASTE of MONEY!
