Marvel Fan Creates Petition to Bring Back Luke Cage Following Netflix Cancellation
Fans are still shocked over Netflix's cancellation of Luke Cage. For many, it's the end to an important series that tackled racial issues and privilege with a predominantly black cast. So Marvel fans are fighting to bring it back.
Luke Hunter took to Change.org and launched a petition for Netflix to bring back the two-time People's Choice Award-nominated show.
“Luke Cage is the finest Marvel show in existence," the petition plea begins. "It exemplifies heroics, sassy banter, great music, and family fun. The cancellation of this beloved show is utterly flabbergasting. We must fight to save our hero of Harlem as he fights for us. Save Power Man!”
The petition, which started yesterday, already has 2060 signees, with a goal of 2500 signatures.
Luke Cage is one of many Marvel shows that Netflix has axed in recent months. The streaming service cancelled Iron Fist just last week.
Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season," Marvel and Netflix announced in a joint statement. "Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series."
Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Disney has no plans to bring back the show on its upcoming streaming service, or on any other platform.
