Marvel Studios has had a rollercoaster relationship with Rotten Tomatoes over the past few years, most notably with a dozen new projects joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe during that time. Despite the occasional discrepancy in terms of ratings, most of the new shows and films have received much acclaim, including the recent show on Ms. Marvel.
With three episodes in her book, how Ms. Marvel compared to its MCU predecessors with its Rotten Tomatoes rating? Well, it seems to not only set a new standard in that regard, but even reach the highest among all our Disney+ friends from outside the Marvel universe as well.
Ms Marvel Becomes Disney+ with Highest Rating
According to Rotten Tomatoes, Ms. Marvel from Marvel Studios has a higher rating than other Disney+ series from Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm.
It currently ranks 96% on the site, beating 93% for both seasons of The Mandalorian and a 94% rating for What If…?. The only show that rates higher is Season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars at 100%, though it’s technically a continuation of the show that didn’t originally start on Disney+, as The Clone Wars debuted on Cartoon Network.
MCU/Star Wars Series Rotten Tomatoes Score
In addition, Ms. Marvel rates it higher than every major release outside the MCU and Star Wars, including High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. The only events that came in higher were Diary of a Future President and The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, though neither of them had critical consensus and only had a total of eight and five ratings.
This is especially impressive considering Ms. Marvel was the target of a bombardment of reviews after its first episode. In the middle of the first season Ms. Marvel, Iman Vellani and the rest of the cast and crew have delivered the right thing to countless viewers and critics alike.
With a lot of mysteries still to be unraveled, things should only improve from here in terms of excitement and viewership, especially with Ms. Marvel now standing alone away from Obi-Wan Kenobi. The first three episodes of Ms. Marvel are available to stream on Disney Plus.
