But 2022 was not a Hall of Fame year for Marvel. There were some highlights that reminded us why we love these wild superhero stories in the first place. There were also a couple of moments that made us wonder whether the comic book industrial complex had gotten just a bit too massive and unwieldy. This year alone, Marvel released three big-screen movies — Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever — three Disney+ series — Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law — and two Disney+ one-off specials — Werewolf By Night and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. With that much stuff coming out all at once, is it any wonder the studio’s quality control might have dipped a little?
Case in point: These ten moments of disappointment and frustration from Marvel’s 2022 output, ranked from the least upsetting to the most aggravating. Keep in mind, some of these moments do involve spoilers for these MCU films and shows. If you’ve seen them all and you’re looking for a full and fair assessment of Marvel’s year in review, you’re ready to begin our list…
