(10/21/18) - The Marvel universe just got a slice smaller on Netflix with the cancellation of "Marvel's Luke Cage" after two seasons.

The news Friday surprised fans and came a few weeks after Netflix axed another live-action Marvel series, "Iron Fist." Both are part of The Defenders world.

Netflix didn't explain the Cage cancellation in a joint statement with Marvel. They thanked creators, cast and crew - and fans of the Harlem Hero. An email request for additional comment from Netflix was not immediately returned Saturday.

The Cage series made a splash when it was released because it featured a rare black superhero in a standalone vehicle. Mike Colter starred as the bullet-proof hero for hire. The second season dropped in June.
