The year of 2022: Favorite Disney+ episode

The year of 2022: Favorite Disney+ episode

The year is coming to an end and that means it’s time to look back on the year that was! In 2022, not only three brand new series came to Disney+, but also the first special presentations from Marvel Studios. We have Steve (and Marc…and also Jake), Kamala Khan, Jennifer Walters, all the Guardians and a werewolf? 2022 was a year for the record books.

So before we officially say goodbye to this year, it’s time to dive into some of our favorite moments and episodes here at Marvel — because we were just as excited to watch all of these episodes at midnight (and/or 3 a.m. ET ), also .

Moon Knight

Episode 1, “The Goldfish Problem”

The pilot episode of Moon Knight really grabbed me! It introduces this adorable character and does a great job of setting up the mystery surrounding Steven’s personality and what’s going on in his life. – Erin Kaswan, Content Distribution Coordinator

Episode 5, “Asylum”

Two words: Oscar Isaac. He is absolutely incredible in this episode! – Andrea Lans, Assistant Manager, Social Media

It was incredibly well acted by Oscar Isaac and I loved seeing the way Marc’s internal struggle was portrayed – Brian Marquez, Associate Manager, Product Development – Marvel Games

Episode 6, “Gods and Monsters”

Layla breaking out her Scarlet Scarab wings for the first time is a vision! – Eun Jeong, Assistant Manager, Business Development

He has jokes! (And F Murray Abraham!!) – Larissa Rosen, Director, Production Management

Mrs. Marvel

Episode 1, “Generation Why”

Mrs. Marvel is the fun, passionate teenage superhero/superfan of my dreams! Iman Vellani embodied her with such joy and love and the series with the colors, music and humor made me so excited for the future of the MCU. – Isabel Robertson, Associate Podcast Producer

Iman Vellani was perfect in the title role and the entire cast shone in the extremely fun kick-off to this series. – Zachary Schechter, Proofreader

Kamala Khan has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters, so it was fantastic to finally see her on the big screen. And Iman Vellani is the perfect Kamala Khan. – Haley Conatser, Associate Manager, Content Distribution

I love when the Marvel Cinematic Universe pays homage to its source material, so it should come as no surprise that the way “Generation Why” incorporated art into Ms. Marvel’s pilot episode really blew me away. Kamala crashed into my heart right from the jump. – Meagan Damore, Associate Editor Marvel.com

She-Hulk: Lawyer

Episode 4, “Isn’t This Real Magic?”

It has action, adventure, magic, romance (wink) and the best monologue from the world’s greatest character Madisynn the world has ever seen. Let’s just say, “At first it was fun and then scary and then fun again and then scary, but in a fun way.” – Lorraine Cink, Director of Creative Content

Episode 6, “Just Jen”

It was a fun episode that focused more on Jen than on She-Hulk. It really showed Jen’s relatability, especially in her desire to be accepted for who she is and not for the person everyone wants to see. – Peter Rosas, Senior Development Manager

Episode 7, “The Retreat”

The finale was the funniest surprise moment, but episode 7 from end to end had the best character moments. – Mark Basso, editor

Don’t tell him, but I’m a sucker for Zeb Wells’ writing. This ep of this incredibly fun show is great. The second best Marvel character ever? Check (sorry, Jen, but Spidey always wins). Humanizing fun C-List villains? Check. Romance? Check. Great twist ending? Check. – Nick Lowe, Spider Editor

Episode 8, “Ribbit and Rip It”

One word (or sometimes two hyphenated words?): Leapfrog. Also, this was the Daredevil/She-Hulk crossover I was looking forward to. Loved seeing Charlie Cox back in the role and his opening scene in the courtroom reminded me why he’s the perfect Matt Murdock. Love this for you, Jen! – Robyn Belt, Chief Content Editor, Marvel Unlimited

We finally get to see Daredevil’s debut in the MCU, new suit and all. I think it lived up to the hype and it just makes me even more excited Daredevil: Born Again.- Stephen Fiore, Senior Digital Designer

Tatiana Maslany was in top form in this episode, literally flexing her muscles as She-Hulk and Jen, blending the action and comedy of the series perfectly. Also, the return of Charlie Cox as a more light-hearted Daredevil was far funnier than I think anyone expected. The chemistry between the two was also nuclear in nature. AND the MCU debut of Leapfrog. It was a party. – Eric Grundhauser, Head of Programming

What’s not to love about this episode?! Tatianna Maslany’s performance continues to shine. The She-Hulk/Daredevil chemistry was off the charts. Leapfrog was a hysterically brilliant antagonist. Pure fun and joy from start to finish – Kaeden McGahey, Associate Editor

Episode 9, “Whose Show Is This?”

She-Hulk was a series that surprised me. Tatiana Maslany was incredible and her performance cemented it as my favorite Marvel Disney+ series of 2022. The joke at the end about having to sign the NDA hit close to home when She-Hulk walked in to talk to KEVIN Clever who wrote and laugh out loud moment throughout the series. – Eric Monacelli, Senior Director, Product and Franchise Development

This may have been my most anticipated Disney+ series, and it blew my expectations out of the water. Everything from Jen’s dating life, to her professional career, to coping with the burden of being a superhero was just *chef’s kiss* – Jasmine Estrada, sound producer

Werewolf at night

They took a big turn with the genre and then chose to stick to the piece, and it paid off. – Ron Richards, VP of Planning and Platforms

It’s wild and fun, has great music, tremendous style, is full of TED, and is just the best. – Ryan Penagos, Vice President and Creative Director

The vibes are flawless. It’s creepy, it’s spooky, the music is so good, and it has the stamp of everything I love about Halloween, all wrapped up in a fun little MCU package. I won’t even pretend I haven’t seen it half a dozen times and it gets better with each viewing. Also, who doesn’t have a soft spot for Ted? – Rachel Paige, Editor Marvel.com

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

This whole thing just felt like a cozy holiday hug. I didn’t realize how much I had missed Guardians this year until I saw this! – Faith D’Isa, Assistant Manager, Audience Development

Stream all these titles, and more, now on Disney+.
