With She-Hulk: Attorney at Law wrapping up its first season, it puts a bow on the first slate of MCU television shows on Disney+ and the Letterboxd reviews have rolled in. With the popularity of the MCU, the Letterboxd community is quick to share their thoughts on the latest project while rating them on their signature 5-star scale.

Phase 4 is the first phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to use the television medium to tell its stories in an episodic format, giving fans something to look forward to on a weekly basis. The shows have continued the stories of fan-favorite characters while also introducing new players to the franchise and with the exception of What If...?, fans have chimed in to rate their favorite ones.

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law - 2.85

Most fans of the MCU would agree that She-Hulk is probably the most divisive show in the franchise so far. With She-Hulk being the meta-character that she is, the show attempts to address the toxic fans and the MCU fandom as a whole by changing the pace from what viewers are used to.

Despite the mixed reactions, the series provided plenty of memorable moments for viewers, most notably the return of Charlie Cox's Daredevil and what is so far the most creative finale of the MCU Disney+ shows. She-Hulk also boasts the largest episode count alongside WandaVisionand with a second season potentially on the way, the show can further explore how Jen integrates She-Hulk into her everyday life.

Ms. Marvel - 3.31

If there's one thing that most fans can agree on about Ms. Marvel, it's that Iman Vellani was the perfect casting for Kamala Khan. It's one of the constant points brought up throughout the Letterboxd community, along with praising the show's cultural elements and added representation to the franchise.

Kamala's power change from the comics to the show was a choice that fans weren't sure about heading in, but the show made sure to keep her power's origins tied to her familial history. The Khan family was easily one of the best parts of the show, and fans can see more of them in Kamala's next on-screen appearance in 2023's The Marvels.

The Falcon And The Winter Soldier - 3.39

Sam Wilson was given the shield by Steve Rogers at the end of Avengers: Endgame and earned the mantle of Captain America in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The series is probably the most cinematic feeling of the MCU Disney+ shows as Sam and Bucky Barnes finally get a story where they're at the center. It implemented the political elements of previous Captain America projects, this time surrounding Sam, including the implications of a Black man becoming Captain America.

One of the main criticisms of the series from Letterboxd users was that the antagonist in Karli Morgenthau was one of the more underwhelming villains of Phase 4. But what was lacking in antagonism was made up for with John Walker, as the character wasn't necessarily a villain but was a key obstacle in Sam's journey to becoming Captain America.

Hawkeye - 3.55

Though Iron Man 3 could technically be considered the first MCU Christmas project, Hawkeye was the first one to truly embrace it. Clint Barton was the first of the original six Avengers to appear in a Phase 4 show, with his latest adventure dealing with his past as Ronin and being a mentor to the next person to carry the Hawkeye mantle. With the introduction of Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop, she quickly became a fan-favorite character.

Kate Bishop looks to be a major player in the MCU's future, as the show itself laid the foundation for many upcoming projects. Hawkeye somewhat suffered from introducing its villain late into the show and with its 6-episode season, the introduction of Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin to the main MCU timeline was met with excitement but with little screen time. But overall, the show had plenty of highs including the introduction of Kate and Echo, Yelena Belova's return, and the future setup for Kingpin.

Moon Knight - 3.74

Moon Knight is the most self-contained of the MCU TV shows so far, with its plot having very little implication on the overall story of the franchise. But to most, it worked to its benefit as Marc Spector's MCU introduction could focus on him specifically. With Oscar Isaac playing the titular character and Ethan Hawke bringing Arthur Harrow to life, the series was met with much anticipation.

Like with the other 6-episode series, it's argued that more episodes would have done the character plenty of justice, but they were still able to cover a lot of ground in just a handful of episodes. There were plenty of great action sequences involving both Moon Knight and Mr. Knight, alongside the introduction of Layla El-Faouly and her superhero alter-ego Scarlet Scarab. A second season of Moon Knight could incorporate more of his Jewish heritage, as well as more of Marc's third personality in Jake Lockley.

Loki - 3.83

The God of Mischief was finally given his own solo project in Phase 4, which to many fans, was long overdue. It stands out as one of the most visually distinct and director oriented of the MCU television series and arguably the most important moving forward in the Multiverse Saga.

He Who Remain's appearance in the final episode of Season 1 planted the seeds for Kang the Conquerer's debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, as he gavean in-depth explanation of the different timelines within the universe. As viewers look forward to Loki and Sylvie's next adventures in Season 2 with the Multiverse wide open, it should be expected that they'll meet more Loki variants along the way.

WandaVision - 3.88

WandaVision was the first project of Phase 4 and is still considered one of the best of the recent MCU releases. Wanda Maximoff further proved herself as one of the most powerful characters in the MCU, while also being one of the franchise's most layered and complex.

Fans praised how the show was able to pay homage to the different eras of television in what is probably the most well-rounded and creative MCU series to date. WandaVision has plenty of connections to the greater MCU, with many of its plot points being revisited in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The week-to-week anticipation of new episodes set social media on fire and considering it was the first project released after the longest MCU drought, WandaVision could go down as a classic to MCU fans.
