Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sees Shuri taking the mantle of the Black Panther in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the citizens of Wakanda mourn the death of their king, they are met with a threat from the outer world. Together with Queen Ramonda, M’Baku, Okoye and the Dora Milaje, Shuri fights to protect the kingdom of Wakanda in this epic sequel that was released earlier this month. 

The movie has a Tomatometer score of 84%. The first Black Panther is still the Highest-Rated MCU Movie on Rotten Tomatoes ever, with a staggering score of 96%.

The average score for an MCU movie in 2022 was 74%. This is the first time since 2015 that any of the Marvel movies released in the year failed to score a Tomatometer rating of 90% or above. 

The Boys Season 3 and Ms Marvel are Rotten Tomatoes’ Best Superhero TV Shows of 2022.

Meanwhile, when it comes to Superhero TV Shows, The Boys Season 3 and Ms Marvel are both tied for the Highest-Rated Superhero TV Show of 2022, with both earning a Tomatometer score of 98%.

The Boys Season 3 was the best outing of the series so far and delivered the standout season of the show. The series has always been a bold political satire, but this season, the political elements truly blurred the line between our reality and the reality within the show, and it was horrifying to see the parallels between them. Erik Kripke has done it all so cleverly and audaciously that it must be praised. 

The Boys also remains as great of an action drama as it was, probably even better this season with the addition of Jensen Ackles’s Soldier Boy into the mix and the deeper emotional connection to the show’s characters it manages to build. Definitely one of the Best TV Shows of the Year.

Meanwhile, Ms Marvel was a refreshing dose of coming-of-age superhero story in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that was both lighthearted and enjoyable.

The series had a decent mix of fresh cultural elements alongside a sweet blend of family dynamics. Iman Vellani did a great job as Kamala Khan and was just utterly charming and loveable. Ms Marvel was definitely the Marvel Show to watch this year.


Werewolf by Night is the users’ pick for the Best Superhero TV Show/TV Special, with an audience rating of 90%.

Werewolf by Night follows a lycanthrope superhero who fights evil using the abilities given to him by a curse brought on by his bloodline and is a brilliant standalone entry in the MCU that pays homage to classic horror films.
