There are a lot of things that Luke Cage can withstand. 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.

Though the Marvel-Netflix show "Daredevil" just returned for its third season, some fans are anxious about what this means for the rest of "The Defenders" characters - Jessica Jones and Daredevil - now that Iron First and Luke Cage are done.

Netflix cancelled Luke Cage on Friday, with creative differences reportedly being the reason for the choice. Marvel and Netflix canceled Iron Fist last week, to the surprise of none.

After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But, being that the Simone Missick co-starrer crashed Netflix in its first season opening weekend in September 2016 and had a very well watched and well received 13-episode Season 2, it could be a Sweet Christmas, as Cage likes to quip"A lot [of] memorie s", Coker tweeted".

It's always hard to gauge the popularity and performance of a Marvel Netflix series - or any Netflix series, for that matter.

The cancellation surprised numerous show's fans, some who were expecting another season. I swear to God, we'd better hear something about a Heroes for Hire series like, YESTERDAY.

According to Deadline, Netflix moved to kill Luke Cage following tension that began rising at the start of October. 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'm not into @Marvel movies or the universe". Now, turns out, that isn't the case, but series lead Mike Colter isn't sweating it.
