Marvel released a number of TV shows which included WandaVision, Hawkeye, Moon Knight, Loki, Falcon and Winter Soldier, Ms Marvel, She-Hulk and What If…?.
WandaVision was the first MCU Phase 4 project and MCU Disney+ TV show overall, and its debut in early 2021 ended the longest drought MCU content audiences have ever experienced.
The MCU was somewhat aimless and uneven after the success of “Avengers: Endgame,” but it’s possible that Phase 4 will be remembered for leading the MCU into TV territory.
Here is a list of all the Phase 4 Tv Shows ranked.
9. I am Groot (2022)
The character Baby Groot from “The Guardians of the Galaxy” appears in five animated shorts, where he embarks on adventures, sometimes accompanied by his friend Rocket.
The CGI in the series is well-animated, but the adventures are not significant and are more suitable for young kids. It’s not a memorable series and can be skipped without missing much.
The show presents itself as a superhero adventure but resembles a story similar to “Ally McBeal.” It follows the protagonist who balances her career as a lawyer with newfound powers. The premise seemed promising, but the show’s tone was difficult to sell, especially given the current political situation.
It faced challenges, with many people already disliking it before its release and its confusing marketing not winning over enough casual fans. Unfortunately, the show was not successful.
7. Ms. Marvel
Kamala Khan finally made her debut in the MCU in the delightful series “Ms. Marvel.” The show tells a straightforward origin story of the titular character as she gains powers and tries to navigate the exciting but dangerous world of superheroes.
Unlike her comic book version, the MCU’s Kamala is a mutant instead of an Inhuman, which caused significant controversy among fans of the original material.
Hawkeye (Clint Barton) is trying to enjoy the holidays with his kids in NYC, but he gets caught up in a criminal gang situation and meets Kate Bishop, a young woman who is proficient with a bow and aspires to be a superhero.
We do get some surprise character reveals in this series, especially at the finale. Overall, this a good series to binge-watch

5. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021)
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” faced challenges in balancing its complex themes with the need to advance the MCU story. While familiar characters from the Captain America franchise returned, the show didn’t give them enough attention and focused mainly on passing the shield to Sam, a significant but cathartic development.
Despite these issues, the series shines as a character study of Sam and Bucky, offering closure to the events of the Infinity Saga and setting them up for a future Captain America film.
4. Moon Knight
Moon Knight is a unique addition to the MCU, featuring superhero action and genre-savvy storytelling, but with a self-contained story and focus on character development.
The series is anchored by Oscar Isaac’s outstanding performance as Moon Knight/Steven Grant/Marc Spector, and the non-linear storytelling allows for a deep exploration of grief and mental health, along with an exciting tomb-raiding adventure across space and time.
3. What If Season 1 (2021)
The animated series “What If…?” by Marvel Studios explores alternate universes and timelines created by changes to familiar MCU characters and storylines. It’s an anthology series that combines blockbuster grandeur and comic humour, with stylish cel-shaded animation that brings the MCU closer to its comic book roots.
The series has its limitations, including some inconsistent vocal performances from actors reprising their roles as voice actors.
The God of Mischief finally took centre stage in the third Disney+ show, appropriately titled Loki. The endless fountain of charm that is Tom Hiddleston reprised his role as the mischievous god in a story that sees him come face to face with the mysterious Time Variance Authority
1. WandaVision (2021)
They say the first will always be the best, and in the MCU’s case, it’s true. WandaVision remains undefeated when it comes to Disney+ shows, showcasing two of the franchise’s most underrated and complex characters in a daring and genre-bending story. The show blends classic sitcoms with the Marvel superhero world, as Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) and Vision live in the suburban town of Westview, New Jersey.
However, as the series progresses, it is revealed that everything is not as it seems, and the two heroes must confront dark forces and uncover the truth behind their idyllic reality.
The series explores themes of grief, trauma, and control, while also featuring appearances from other MCU characters and setting up events for future MCU projects.
