Netflix revealed that they had cancelled the Punisher and Jessica Jones.
The Punisher had just released its second season, and Jessica Jones is on its third.
However, Jessica Jones season three will be the last of the Netflix Marvel series, and it probably has a lot to do with Disney’s upcoming streaming service.
That said, these Marvel Netflix TV shows were revolutionary for the superhero genre on television, and director Jeremy Webb recently revealed what the cancellation means for the future of these types of shows.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, Webb revealed: “The cancellations of the Netflix Marvels shows is obviously a big loss to the crews in New York who made them, and as you know I really enjoyed being a part of that world.
He continued: “I think there’s already enough being written about why the spilt happened and how things will evolve from here.
Webb then went on to add that he had “no fear” that there would be more brilliant Marvel TV shows made in the future.
“Have no fear there will be more fantastic Marvel TV shows on different platforms as well as new exciting superhero content on Netflix,” he said, before adding: “Like The Umbrella Academy!”
Webb also directed two episodes of The Umbrella Academy which has quickly become one of Netflix’s hits of the year so far.
The show was based on a comic book series created and written by My Chemical Romance’s lead singer Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá.
The Umbrella Academy was developed by Steve Blackman and Jeremy Slater for Netflix and has received high praise from critics including Express.co.uk.
As for Webb, he’s worked on many TV shows such as Fox’s Legion, Marvels’ Runaways, Masters Of Sex and Fear The Walking Dead.
He’s currently working on Altered Carbon series two and a TV adaptation of Joe Hill’s novel NOS4R2.
He directed three episodes of The Punisher, one in the first series and two in the second.
The two episodes of The Umbrella Academy he directed were I Heard A Rumour and Changes.
Webb has had a lot of experience working in the superhero genre, and his thoughts surrounding the cancellations of The Punisher and Jessica Jones should put fans of the Marvel TV series at ease.
Daredevil was Marvel and Netflix’s first collaboration, which went on to spawn the likes of Jessica Jones, The Punisher, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders.
Unfortunately, towards the end, it was a case of diminishing returns with the likes of Iron Fist and The Defenders receiving mixed reviews.
However, these shows have paved the way for the superhero genre on television and thanks to them they’ll be many more Marvel, DC Comics and other comic book properties coming to the small screen.
The Punisher and Jessica Jones can be streamed now on Netflix.
