Much to the dismay of the fans, Netflix has to cancel all of the Marvel Series shows which are owned by Disney because they aren’t getting any of the stakes of the show. It was a business decision that they had to do to protect their own empire. However, on the same note, they have lost a lot of followers and subscriptions have gone down the drain as reported by DigitalSpy.com

The Rap God has spoken

Among the shows that were cancelled was “The Punisher”.

Jon Bernthal who plays the role of Frank Castle/The Punisher was able to embody what “The Punisher” is all about. It gained a lot of fans, including the Rap God himself, Eminem. It is no secret that Eminem is not high on social media, but in a glaring way, he commented about “The Punisher” being cancelled. Em called out Netflix, with a tweet; "DEAR @NETFLIX, REGARDING YOUR CANCELLATION OF THE PUNISHER, YOU ARE BLOWING IT!!

SINCERELY, MARSHALL." The tweet gained 42.8K likes and 8.2K comments over a couple of hours. Netflix hasn’t responded to the Rap God, but it is crystal clear that his voice was heard all over the Twitter world. Eminem’s tweeting just sparked a movement that even people who aren’t really watching “The Punisher” are now interested to see it.

'The Punisher' responds

Yesterday, Jon Bernthal responded to Eminem saying that he is honoured knowing that “The King” is watching.

Marvel fans are still exasperated about the decision that was made, but at the end of the day, it is part of the business. TV Series or shows that are cancelled usually gets a reboot, especially if it has a huge fan base. With that said, there’s a big chance for these Marvel shows to get another shot and it is just a matter of time until another station picks them up. Remember what happened when Brooklyn Nine-Nine got cut by FOX? Well, they aren’t just soaring when it comes to the ratings, but they are now widely considered as one of the best TV series in television history.

Netflix ends partnership with Marvel

Again, the rumours over Netflix “saving” other Marvel series wasn’t true. For those who haven’t heard yet, here’s the full list of Marvel shows that were axed by Netflix this year. “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” was on the rise, but the streaming giant didn’t have enough faith in both series. The flagship show of Marvel “Daredevil” was also cut, which started the noise about Netflix and Marvel having some issues with their partnership.

Ultimately, they also let go of “Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher”. The only positive thing that happened to this partnership is, they were able to relieve all those series that have gone from comic book to television. The younger generation now has a better idea of why the older generation was and still is addicted to Marvel superheroes.
