It's been a whirlwind week for the Powers That Be over at Marvel and Netflix. Everyone involved with Luke Cage and even those with just periphery knowledge of the series believed that a third season was an inevitability. Although the third season of Marvel's Daredevil just debuted with rave reviews, and Marvel's Jessica Jones is now filming its third season, the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be coming to a close sooner rather than later. Well, Matt Murdock earned nothing but stellar reviews for his admittedly bleak third installment, but this mass Netflix exodus serves as a pointed reminder that no series is safe from Disney's axe, as the Mouse House prepares to get its ducks in a row ahead of the aforementioned streaming service booting online sometime next year.

According to reports, reasons for cancellation include creative differences, though it's not clear who was bumping heads, as well as the failure of Netflix and Marvel to agree on terms for a third season.

"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.

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist all show signs of diminishing interest.

The news came just one week after "Iron Fist" was also axed, leaving "Daredevil" and "Jessica Jones" as the two remaining Marvel shows on the platform.

Marvel and Netflix issued a joint statement after the series was cancelled, praising the cast, crew, and fan base for their support and work on the series. The actor took to social media Sunday (Oct. 21) to express gratitude and show off the newest addition to his family. It would have been a Sweet Christmas if things had worked out differently for the superhero series. What's that mean for Luke Cage's future? "The cancellation of this beloved show is utterly flabbergasting". There's no telling what Marvel and Netflix decide to do, but it's lovely to see so many fans keeping a positive outlook.
