Many fans were upset to find out that Luke Cage was being cancelled. Fans even started a petition online in hopes to get Netflix to bring Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Daredevil back. Colter expressed that even with all the efforts from fans, he doesn’t believe it will change anything.
“I don’t know that it’s something that fans can do, necessarily,” Colter said. “I think it’s a real network/studio thing. I think it’ll resolve itself, one way or the other. There just needs to be some time. Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe that’s it. But I don’t think the fans… as much as the fans — the outpouring of the fans is very touching and well received and it’d be appreciated — I don’t think it’s gonna make anything happen, but it’s nice to know that. I think, ultimately, if it comes back, it’ll probably come back because of the fans demand for it. I don’t think that their work is going in vain. It just may not happen as soon as they want it to.”
The Ruffles Celebrity All-Star game will air on Friday, Feb. 15 on ESPN.
