‘Ms. Marvel’ and the Highest-Rated Marvel Shows on Disney+
- On the heels of its finale, Ms. Marvel has become Marvel’s highest-rated Disney+ show.
- Loki, Hawkeye, and WandaVision are also among the franchise’s top-rated series.
- Marvel Studios has more television projects coming, including She-Hulk and Echo.
Ms. Marvel Season 1 just completed its run on Disney+, and the series has officially become Marvel Studios’ highest-rated on Rotten Tomatoes. Kamala Khan’s (Iman Vellani) origin story seems to have appealed to critics and general audiences alike. And when it comes to the former group, the Disney+ show was greeted with even more enthusiasm than Loki, Hawkeye, and WandaVision.
‘Ms. Marvel’ is now Marvel’s highest-rated Disney+ show
The Ms. Marvel finale dropped on Disney+ on July 13, and critic scores on Rotten Tomatoes have rendered it the highest-rated MCU show to date. Although the Average Audience Score sits at 79% as of this writing, the Average Tomatometer score clocks in at a whopping 98%.
That places it ahead of the other MCU shows to come out on Disney+, including hits like Loki and WandaVision. And critic reviews hype up Kamala Khan’s story as one of the franchise’s most successful series so far. The strengths pointed out in such reviews include the colorful visuals, charming characters, and
“Ms. Marvel doesn’t reinvent the superhero wheel,” Eric Francisco wrote on in a review for Inverse. “Instead, it dips it in gold and bedazzles it with eye-melting visuals.”
“Ms. Marvel feels like the first Disney+ show to really focus on the ‘origin’ part of the origin story and get it right,” Garrett Green noted in Black Nerd Problems‘ review.
Of course, the MCU’s other Disney+ shows have high ratings as well. Even the lowest falls well above the 50% mark. Let’s look at all of the franchise’s series so far and how they fared on Rotten Tomatoes.
