Marvel Cinematic Universe has been expanding on TV thanks in part to the company’s collaboration with Netflix. With the second season of Daredevil and the first season of Luke Cage, 2016 played an important part for Marvel’s TV corner and it will continue to grow in 2017 with Iron Fist having its first season in 2017 and The Defenders following it.
