Marvel Developing MCU TV Shows For Loki, Scarlet Witch And More

It's also not hard to see that, though, that while these series certainly sound ambitious to say the least, they could definitely be the thing that lures enough people to check out the platform - and maybe even help it start to eat away at Netflix's edge.
