The show has already received positive comments and seems different from the basic standard of a superhero show. Earlier also the director explained how Marvel tends to experiment with different storylines and thus, it defined the show to be a perfect legal comedy. The show also perfectly aligns with the surprising scope of the franchise with plentiful action scenes and it’s best for fans who are looking forward to intense superhero entertainment.

“It’s always been about a balance between creating a new genre for Marvel, which is the half-hour legal comedy, but also feeling like it really fits into the MCU and feels big and cinematic and has action-packed moments. It was always about finding that balance.”

Due to the humor in the show, these superhero explorations don’t overshadow Jennifer Walters’ dilemma. They gave this character a strong spotlight and showed how uncomfortable the character is with her popularity and if she should eventually give priority to her responsibilities as a superhero over her job.

The show’s potential to pull off an admirable balance between the elements of comedy and action was brought out when the director praised the writing and the actress emphasized her character even more with her performance. And this is politely true as Marvel heroes have generally pursued superpowers over the daily grind. But Jennifer’s goals are entirely different from the rest of them. Considering this unique touch and comedic tone, it’s right to say this character will spread out from other MCU shows and movies.
