The impeccable scores on Rotten Tomatoes are quickly becoming a trend once again for Marvel Studios early into Phase 4. However, fans shouldn’t expect this specific score to last for the show’s entire six-week run.
Rotten Tomatoes has officially released its critic approval rating for Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on the eve of its debut on Disney+, coming in at 96% overall.
