Ms. Marvel had premiered with the lowest viewership in comparison with other live-action Disney Plus projects.
Hitting the streaming platform last week, Ms. Marvel is the newest series from Marvel Studios. Samba TV reported that only 775k US households caught the first episode in its first five days. This led Ms. Marvel to stay behind Hawkeye with 1.5 million, which was the lowest viewership for a live-action film in the MCU series. Although Ms. Marvel’s premiere is technically higher than What If…?, it has only viewership numbers in one day.
In spite of the low view ratings for the Ms. Marvel debut, more Gen Z and various audience members were still attracted compared with other Marvel Studios shows. It’s notable that Ms. Marvel had to confront the fourth episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi as it is released on Disney Plus on the same day.
Iman Vellani, a rookie to acting, makes her debut as Kamala Khan in Ms. Marvel, which also marks the live-action debut of the beloved Marvel character. Also joining Vellani are Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Mohan Kapur, Zenobia Shroff, Matt Lintz, Laith Naki, Travina Springer, Yasmeen Fletcher, Azher Usman, and Nimra Bucha.
Executive producers Meera Menon, Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy are in charge of directing Ms. Marvel, while executive producer Bisha K. Ali is on board as the show’s chief writer.
Now, Ms. Marvel is streaming on Disney Plus, and new episodes will be released every Wednesday.
