For this article, I am ranking all of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s live-action series you can stream on Disney+. I am ranking them from lowest to highest, according to my own personal taste. The world has gone into one of its most difficult eras. And, Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU, provides light through its mini-series on the platform.
As of this writing, on the other hand, Ms. Marvel will not be on the list since it’s still ongoing during the composition of this article. For now, let me rank all these MCU live-action series, according to which personally impacted me among the rest of the Disney+ installments.
Ranking my favorite MCU live-action series on Disney+
Don’t get me wrong, WandaVision is absolutely genius. It actually has the best MCU TV villain since Kingpin, the major antagonist on Daredevil. Don’t get me wrong, WandaVision is absolutely genius. It actually has the best MCU TV villain since Kingpin, the major antagonist on Daredevil.
This certain villain is named Agatha Harkness who took the guise of Agness, Wanda’s nosy neighbor who has actually been interfering with her idyllic paradise to her own benefit. WandaVision has cool epilogues and intense fight scenes.
Unfortunately, I personally found the pacing a little slow. And, I didn’t enjoy the Truman Show vibe of the premise which uses a television show to tell its story. I disliked it especially when the TV show thing lasted only a couple of episodes.
Ah, Loki. The show had a good start and a particularly well-made premise. The chemistry between Loki and Sylvie, another Loki variant, was definitely a narcissistic chef’s kiss. Unfortunately, that was the cause of its downfall.
Loki is gender-fluid, as mentioned by Marvel in many interviews and in many comic releases.
So, if Sylvie is a Loki variant, did he have a romantic attachment to another version of himself? That’s what made it personally cheesy. The romance between two Loki variants felt forced.
I personally think that Hawkeye is the dark horse on this list. I love the friendship between two Hawkeyes, Kate Bishop and Clint Barton. Their bond goes through serious moments and funny ones. Plus, Hailey Steinfield as the new Hawkeye is just charming.
When it comes to the plot, on the other hand, I love the way it connected the Black Widow movie and the TV series, Daredevil. The premise was simple. However, it didn’t fail to bring that Marvel magic. One more thing I have to say — Echo, a newly-introduced character in the MCU, is definitely a good addition to the universe.
Moon Knight (9/10)
Now, a newly-introduced character definitely impressed me. Marc Spector is a mercenary who has dissociative identity disorder (DID). He draws himself into a deadly mystery involving Egyptian gods with his multiple alters which include Steven Grant among others.
Personally, I think Moon Knight is a very powerful addition to the MCU. Plus, the introduction to Egyptian mythology was just on-point. Aside from that, Oscar Isaac also fits into the character well and I love how he portrayed every personality that his character who has DID has.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (9.5/10)
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is my favorite mini-series on this list. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian as Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes just really click with each other. Even in real-life interactions, they go so well — as seen on red carpet events and interviews among others. Their chemistry is just so inviting to watch.
Aside from that, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier also has a very relevant promise. This introduced a new character in the MCU with John Walker. Chosen to become the second Captain America, he let it get to his head. Until, Sam finally took the shield, honoring Steve Rogers’ wish for him to take the mantle as Captain America.
Walker portrays the flaw of American patriotism very well. Meanwhile, Sam as the new Captain America sends a very powerful message in a time when racism in many parts of the world remains rampant. As such, it also gave Bucky a piece of redemption he soulfully deserved.
