Former Daredevil Showrunners Buy Costumes from Marvel’s Live Auction
Following the surprising cancellation of all Netflix Marvel shows, Marvel Television organized a live auction event featuring the on-screen props and costumes from Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Former Daredevil showrunners Steven S. DeKnight and Erik Oleson took to Twitter to reveal that they both participated in yesterday’s live-auction by purchasing Matt Murdock’s costumes.
DeKnight purchased Daredevil‘s first red and black costume for $55,000 while Oleson won Matt’s costume from his final fight against Wilson Fisk.
Though there was some hope from fans that the shows could live on on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, the auctioning off of costumes and props from the shows all but puts a nail in the coffin for them. Furthermore, it’ll be two years before development can even start to happen on any projects featuring the characters previously seen on Netflix.
All three seasons of Marvel’s Daredevil are still available for streaming on Netflix.
