Did Netflix Cancel 'Luke Cage' Over "Creative Differences"?

Did Netflix Cancel 'Luke Cage' Over

"While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on".

After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin.

"Luke Cage is the finest Marvel show in existence".

Luke Cage actor Mike Colter was also thankful for the opportunity to portray Luke Cage and had a positive message. Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and his team had created much of the plot outline for Season 3 already, according to Deadline, when the delivery of more detailed drafts to Marvel and Netflix caused problems.

The new Charlie's Angels movie stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska as the three Angels. Patrick Stewart and Djimon Hounsou will play the other two Bosleys.

"A lot memories. A lot of individual thank-you calls to make", Coker tweeted.

"I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character, and I thank you fantastic fans", he wrote alongside a photo of him with his newborn. It also adds there was an "inability to agree to terms for a third season of the show".

"So wait... First they cancel Iron Fist after a massive improvement". Those creatives had apparently been crafting stories, reviewing notes and feedback from Marvel Television and Netflix brass, and polishing up scripts for roughly six months prior to the series' cancellation. The outlet notes that things went "distinctly south" around Wednesday, October 17 - just 48 hours before the streamer canceled the show. "I was into #LukeCage which played like a modern Syfy allegory". Netflix is pumping billions into its original content library over the next few years, so it can certainly afford to lose a few shows if it means cutting all ties with what will potentially soon be their biggest competitor. "I hope they solicit other networks & platforms to continue". "@cheo_coker is a great writer; Mike Colter is 'Luke'".

Be that as it may, one person who is particularly disheartened by Luke Cage's shock cancellation is Danny Rand himself, Finn Jones, who shared a poignant photo of Marvel's Heroes for Hire over on Instagram in the wake of Netflix's announcement.
