All the Marvel Shows You Need to Binge-Watch on Disney+ from November 17
Disney+ is finally dropping in the Philippines on November 17 after years of eager anticipation from fans. Filipino Marvel fans have been waiting for this moment for years, and now that it’s finally here, it’s time to schedule days-long binge-watching marathons for the unlimited Marvel content coming our way.
Here are our top picks for your Disney+ binge-watching sessions:
1| What If…?
In this completely subjective list, we’re ranking What If…? as our number one recommended watch. If the Marvel movies were the last Marvel content you watched, then What If…? is the ideal re-entry into the MCU. The series explores alternate timelines and reimagines iconic events, while also setting the tone for the MCU’s new focus: the multiverse.
Spoiler alert: Loki isn’t dead. It’ll take more than Thanos to kill the god of mischief, anyway. Loki was one of the first Marvel shows to hit Disney+, and like What If…?, Loki prepares viewers for the multiverse MCU. Through Loki’s adventures, we learn more about the multiverse, alternate timelines, nexus events, and other important nuggets of information for the next phase of the MCU.
Whether or not you’ve seen Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, WandaVision is essential viewing for all Marvel fans. Set after the events of Endgame, WandaVision is essentially a character study of Wanda Maximoff, the most complicated hero/villain in the MCU. We’ll even go as far to say that she’s the most powerful character, too. If you love sitcoms, then WandaVision might be the closest thing Marvel has to one.
4| The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
While WandaVision focuses on Wanda, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier essentially focuses on the future of the Avengers as a whole. Sam Wilson is the new Captain America and strikes an unexpected partnership with Bucky Barnes. The show follows their new challenges post-Blip, but it also informs viewers of how the world has changed since half of the population returned to existence five years after Thanos snapped his fingers.
The Avengers can’t be Avengers forever, and Hawkeye explores why. The simple fact is, they’re getting old, and they’re ready to pass on the mantle. In Hawkeye, Clint Barton reluctantly teams up and trains Kate Bishop, a skilled archer and his biggest fan. The show also acts as an entry point for another set of important characters for the future of the MCU: Echo, Kingpin, and (implied) Daredevil.
6| Moon Knight
Moon Knight is perhaps the only standalone Marvel series on Disney+. The show follows Steven Grant/Marc Spector, who has a dissociative identity disorder as well as the spirit of an ancient Egyptian warrior. This might be the closest thing that Marvel has to a psych thriller, and you won’t need to know a boatload of Marvel facts to keep up.
7| Ms. Marvel
If Hawkeye has Kate Bishop, then Captain Marvel has Kamala Khan, a teenage girl who suddenly gains superpowers and strives to use them for good. Ms. Marvel is unofficially Marvel’s first film directed entirely for Gen Zs. Younger viewers can use Ms. Marvel as their initiation to the MCU and follow her coming-of-age superhero story.
8| She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
She-Hulk is the latest Marvel show to debut on Disney+, and it might also be its funniest. The show follows Jennifer Walters, Bruce Banner’s cousin, as she becomes She-Hulk. Despite her new ability to become a giant, green hulk, Walters carries on her career as a lawyer. What results is pure, fun chaos.
Catch all of these Marvel shows on Disney+, coming to the Philippines on November 17.
