Marvel has officially canonized its six Netflix shows, sparking immense interest among its fans. Disney made a groundbreaking announcement confirming the integration of the Netflix Marvel shows into the official Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) timeline on Disney+. In this updated MCU timeline, the super-powered heroes and anti-heroes from the former Netflix series hold a prominent place.
Mystery for years
Daredevil emerged as the pioneer and made an appearance just after ‘I Am Groot’. It set the stage for a seamless incorporation of all six titles: ‘Daredevil’, ‘Jessica Jones’, ‘Luke Cage’, ‘Iron Fist’, ‘Defenders’, and ‘The Punisher’. The status of these series within the MCU timeline remained a mystery for years. It has marked a significant moment for fans who have long awaited clarity regarding the canonicity of these beloved series.
Some questions raised
While these shows were initially pitched as Netflix Marvel shows, some fans wondered if that remained the case. Now, they have a definitive answer. With this many questions have been raised, including, where were these street-level heroes during major universe-altering events like the invasion of Thanos as seen in Avengers: Infinity War. If Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and the MCU have the confidence to put the shows like Daredevil on the official timeline, they will certainly give some answers.
‘Iron Fist’ debut
After the confirmation of all six Marvel Netflix shows as entrenched in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) canon, hopes are ignited for the potential resurgence of Iron Fist within this expansive universe. Since the debut of Netflix’s Iron Fist, fans have hoped that it would authentically integrate the character into the MCU narrative.
