The website described the show as "a genuinely fresh addition to the MCU — both stylistically and substantively — with Iman Vellani ably powering proceedings with her super-sized charisma," as it ranked third for Best New Series of 2022 with House of the Dragon taking the first spot.
Rotten Tomatoes announced the RT Awards honouring the best-reviewed films of the year according to the website's rating system. The awards were later renamed the Golden Tomato Awards. The nominees and winners are announced on the website, although there is no actual awards ceremony.
Ms Marvel is helmed by Oscar-winning Pakistani filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Meera Menon, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Starring Pakistani and Indian actors such as Mehwish Hayat, Fawad Khan, Nimra Bucha, Farhan Akhtar, Vardah Aziz, Samina Ahmed and more, the desi-superhero series premiered on Disney+ last year in June.
