With franchises of power and great experience in sci-fi such as Star Wars or the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the platform has a wide specialized catalog. This is why in CINEMACOMICS a recount of the company’s 10 best science fiction series is made.
The list was designed based on the criticism offered by Rotten Tomatoes. The site collects the vote of hundreds of experts by placing a percentage on each title. The closer this figure is to 100%, the more it will mean how much they approved it. Due to the various opinions collected by the portal, it is very likely that the audience does not agree with the following positions.
Ms Marvel (97%)
Although the series was different in all aspects, Ms. Marvel was one of the most controversial productions of the MCU. Its beginning drew attention for the cultural elements and the development of the characters. The visual effects, photography and aesthetics captivated the public.
However, the main problems began after episode 4, when fans decided to protest on social networks. The lack of a real villain, the little connection with what had been done and an abrupt change in the plot disappointed the audience. However, the critics gave applause.
Presenting Kamala Khan as one of the first official mutants of the MCU and her bracelet as an important tool in the future were the elements that convinced.
In the story, Kamala, a young Muslim American woman, is a faithful follower of the superhero sagas. Especially Captain Marvel. Kamala feels that she doesn’t fit into her world, until she gains superpowers like the heroes she looks up to.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (95%)
The top continues to surprise. Agents of SHIELD is one of Marvel’s lowest budget productions. The adventures of a resurrected Agent Coulson and his interns in the organization captivated audiences from the start.
However, as more MCU productions came out and this one moved away from canon, viewers abandoned it. However, it has gathered 7 seasons and 136 episodes. It is the longest program of ‘The House of Ideas’.
In the plot, an elite team of fellow agents, part of the police organization known as SHIELD, investigate strange occurrences around the world and protect ordinary citizens from the extraordinary. Each of its members brings a specialty to the group and they work to protect those who they cannot defend themselves against extraordinary and inconceivable threats.
The Mandalorian (93%)
Not everything is Marvel, but The Mandalorian appears on the list. Star Wars had been very wary of live-action series. Still, he trusted Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau for the former. The project stole so many ovations that the franchise was greatly extended on Disney+.
Also, the title already has 2 seasons and is waiting for the launch of the third. The role of Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin has already entered the collective imagination of fans of the galactic saga. Grogu, little Yoda, has become an icon.
Follow the adventures of Mando, a lone gunslinger and bounty hunter who makes his way across the most remote frontiers of the galaxy, far from the jurisdiction of the New Republic.
Again Marvel is in the ranking. Loki, the favorite series of many, is below the previous ones for critics. The god of trickery returned in a story that finally introduced Kang the Conqueror to the franchise.
Loki steps away from his brother’s shadow to embark on an adventure that takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The death of the Asgardian would be just the beginning of his importance in the Cinematic Universe.
Tom Hiddleston returned to the character. For their part, Owen Wilson (Mobius) and Jonathan Majors (Kang) debuted in the saga with endearing roles.
Just like its predecessor, Rogue One, Andor is filling Star Wars-loving audiences with satisfaction. Cassian’s transition from spy and fugitive to rebel leader has provided a great backstory for a half-empty plot stretch of the saga. This is what happened after episode 3. Most series are located there.
Although the end of the character was already known, many have enjoyed seeing him in action once again. Diego Luna returned in the role.
The story follows a recap of the formative years of rebel spy Cassian Andor and his difficult missions. Getting to the planes of the Death Star was no easy task. The hero who overthrew the Empire little by little has his own spin-off.
It’s not just Kingin’s return, Echo and Kate Bishop’s debut, or Clint Barton’s farewell that Hawkeye is worthy of respect. The series received a great score from critics after its premiere in late 2021.
Despite not being the most popular Avenger, the character had a significant evolution after the loss of his family in Infinity War. His transformation into Ronin and the death of Natasha Romanoff, his great friend, strengthened the production.
Florence Pugh continued what happened in the post-credits of Black Widow in this series. Her encounter with Hawkeye was the start of a long road for the character in the MCU.
Clint Barton and Kate Bishop shoot arrows while avoiding being targeted themselves when the situation changes. That’s what your synopsis says.
Wanda is perhaps one of the most beloved characters by UCM fans. Therefore, her questionable “death” in Doctor Strange: in the multiverse of madness of her unleashed pain in more than one. However, she expects even more from the mutant in the franchise.
Leading idealized suburban lives, superpowered beings Wanda and Vision begin to suspect that nothing is what it seems. The reality created by Wanda has been one of Marvel’s deepest story arcs
The story showed the emotional affectation of Maximoff, the return of Evan Peters, the arrival of Monica Rambeau and more. It will have a spin-off, Agatha: Coven of Chaos.
Just Beyond (88%)
The only one that is not part of the two great franchises on the list is Just Beyond. A story with a much more youthful and fresh tone. Something totally different and independent from the rest.
Journeys of supernatural self-discovery through worlds of witches, aliens, ghosts, and alternate dimensions are part of the adventure. The show also has a great load of comedy.
A luxury cast headed by Mckenna Grace stars in this production of 8 episodes and one season, at least for now.
Agent Carter (86%)
The list closes with two of the least watched Marvel series. However, they are among the most commented. Despite not being 100% part of the canon, the production company supported them long enough. One is Agent Carter.
Hayley Atwell returned for this presentation. Furthermore, the actress was also recently present in Doctor Strange 2 as one of the Illuminati. Also, she gave her voice to the character in the same version of Captain America (British) in What If…?
Peggy Carter juggles working in the gender-restricted Strategic Scientific Reserve in 1946. This is the premise of a story that follows the officer after the death of her beloved Steve Rogers.
Marvel’s Runaways (85%)
Runaways is perhaps Marvel’s most distinct production. A group of young heroes was shown by the company and was not used again. The project was the first fruit of the alliance with Hulu, Disney’s alternative streaming service.
Six teenagers who can barely stand each other must unite against a common enemy: their parents, who have discovered that they are evil.
