In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International Kevin Mayer said a potential revival for the Marvel series on Netflix is still “a possibility.”

  • Mayer was asked about the Marvel Netflix series during an interview regarding the complexities of the recent Disney-Fox deal.
  • The questions refers to the cancellations of Luke Cage and Iron Fist in October and Daredevil in November.
