Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page feels like such a staple within the Marvel Universe on Netflix. Throughout three seasons of Daredevil, two seasons of The Punisher, one of The Defenders, and mentions throughout the streaming service’s universe, she has grown. We saw Karen’s journey from a murder suspect, to an office manager, a reporter, and a loyal friend. The third season of Daredevil gave us more insight on her backstory and her reveal her secret to her two closest friends and her interactions with Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle made all of us desperately want for there to have been something between them.
Unfortunately, with Netflix having axed all of their Marvel shows, there’s a chance we may never see Woll’s Karen Page again. The actress sat down to speak about the cancellations that have ended the Defenders universe:
“When we saw Luke Cage and Iron Fist go, we started to think maybe it was 50/50 and then when they let us go, I thought, ‘Oh, they’re going in another direction.’ They’re going to put their energy into something else and I’m going to start focusing on doing that as well.”
Woll then commented on the speculation that these shows could be picked up by some provider like Hulu:
“I’ve heard absolutely nothing about resurrecting it in any way and I think the chances of that are pretty slim. For me, in my kind of grieving, and moving on from this experience, I have to kind of do that… Daredevil is going to be this beautiful memory rather than a frustrating memory by hanging on to it.
I’m kind of pushing through, so I had to take a step away from it all just for my own mental health. I’m trying to live in a grateful place and a warm, thankful, place… usually you get canceled because you suck and in a way, it’s a really nice thing to get cancelled at the height of our powers, to really go out and say that was strong rather than do three more seasons that people are like ‘Eh, I wish it were more like season three.’”
As someone who absolutely loved these shows and looked forward every single one, I truly hope we don’t see the last of them.
