Echo is an upcoming American television series based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name created by Marion Dayre for the streaming service Disney+.
It is intended to be the tenth television series in Marvel Studios' Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the franchise's films, and is a spin-off from the series Hawkeye (2021).
Maya Lopez returns to her hometown to confront her past, reconnect with her Native American roots, and embrace her family and community.
The series head writer is Dayre, and the directing team is led by Sydney Freeland. 20th Television also produces the show.
What is the Echo Plot?
This story takes place after the events of Hawkeye. It will delve deeper into our deaf Native American superhero protagonist's backstory as she returns to her hometown.
She will confront her past, rediscover her Native American roots, and embrace her family and community.
Although Hawkeye appeared to end with Echo shooting Kingpin, the comics have a similar storyline in which Kingpin survives but is blinded after being shot. This could explain his reappearance in the upcoming series.
Daredevil will be looking for a former ally in this series, rumored to be Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter).
With information like this, it's clear that Echo will cater to Marvel TV fans from the Disney+ and Netflix eras.
Who is in the Echo Cast?
Maya Lopez/Echo will be played again by Alaqua Cox. She previously played the character as a supporting character in Hawkeye, and she will play the protagonist in this spin-off series.
In the show, Zach McClarnon will play Maya's father, William Lopez. Chaske Spencer, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, Cody Lightning, and Graham Greene have all been cast in major roles that have yet to be revealed.
This show will also feature familiar Marvel faces. Charlie Cox will be portraying Matt Murdock/Daredevil. After playing the role in the iconic Netflix series Daredevil, he appeared in a brief cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
He will appear in this film after his role in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Furthermore, Vincent D’Onofrio will be returning as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin after previously sharing the screen with Murdock in Daredevil and Lopez in Hawkeye.
What is the Echo Release Date?
According to screenrant Echo's release date has yet to be determined. It will, however, be released in 2023.
Given that Echo is one of several Marvel series with no confirmed release dates, predicting when to expect it is difficult.
We also have Marvel's Agatha: House of Harkness, Ironheart, Armor Wars, and an untitled Wakanda series circulating with no release dates. Some of these may very well be released in 2023, which means Echo will have to compete with them.
Still, Echo has a confirmed release year, which gives us hope that it will arrive sooner than some of the other projects currently in development.
