Netflix And Marvel Reportedly Clashed Over Season Lengths Of TV Shows Like DAREDEVIL And IRON FIST

We've been hearing a lot about some potential conflict between Marvel and Netflix over the likes of Daredevil and Luke Cage, and now one of the biggest issues between them may have been revealed...

Last week, Marvel fans were left reeling by the news that Daredevil has been cancelled just weeks after the same thing happened to Iron Fist and Luke Cage (Jessica Jones and The Punisher are presumably next for the chopping block once their respective "final" seasons air). 

We've already heard that Marvel may have clashed with Netflix in relation to how to handle these shows from a creative standpoint but Matthew Ball, the former head of strategy for Amazon Studios, has now revealed that the online streaming service wanted to significantly slash the episode count by almost half.

Honestly, that wouldn't have been the worst thing in the world but Marvel clearly felt they couldn't tell a satisfying story in such a short space of time, hence why problems quickly arose. 

Throw in Netflix no longer needing the Marvel brand as much as it once did and the diminishing quality of these shows, and it's easy enough to see why what happened, happened!

What do you guys think the future holds in store for Daredevil and his fellow Defenders
