In the last few years, during which a dozen additional films have been added to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ relationship with Rotten Tomatoes has been everything but stable. While some new shows and movies have bombed in the ratings, others, like the most recent installment, Ms. Marvel, have been well received.
Critics who caught the first two episodes of Ms. Marvel before it debuted on Disney+ were impressed by the series, with many applauding Iman Vellani’s portrayal of Kamala Khan. The Direct also discussed the importance of the visual work and the series’ ties to the history of the Avengers inside the MCU in propelling the narrative forward.
Now that three episodes have been shown, the big question is how Ms. Marvel stacks up on Rotten Tomatoes compared to its MCU forebears. Not only has it supposedly raised the bar in that respect, but it has also topped all of its non-Marvel Disney+ co-stars in terms of viewer satisfaction.
Among Disney+ Originals, Ms. Marvel has the highest viewership and approval ratings so far.
Ms. Marvel, produced by Marvel Studios, has a higher rating on Rotten Tomatoes than any other Marvel Studios or Lucasfilm series available on Disney+.
With a 96% approval rating, Ms. Marvel has settled in nicely after four episodes. This is higher than the 93% and 94% ratings for What If…?, respectively. Even though Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 has a perfect score of 100%, it is technically a continuation of a show that did not premiere on Disney+ (The Clone Wars premiered on Cartoon Network).
