When Marvel’s Echo series arrives in January, it’ll be a game-changer for the studio and the future of Marvel projects on Disney+. Fans already know the series will star Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, the deaf Indigenous assassin who kicked ass for the Kingpin in Hawkeye. While she is someone we are already familiar with, the TV-MA rating for the show isn’t, and will be Marvel Studios‘ first. Not only that, but the full season will drop all at once for your binge-watching pleasure, rather than new episodes dropping weekly.
Echo won’t be alone. Vincent D’Onofrio returns as Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin, her old boss. Charlie Cox suits up once again as Matt Murdock aka Daredevil, preceding his own Daredevil: Born Again series that is undergoing a creative overhaul right now.
The story finds Maya ditching New York to return to her native Oklahoma to face her family, heritage, and a tough history with Kingpin.
Looking like it sprang from the gritty Marvel Netflix period, Echo features more violence and adult content, with characters who really get hurt and really die.
Zahn McClarnon, Graham Greene, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, Chaske Spencer, and Cody Lightning co-star. Sydney Freeland and Catriona McKenzie act as directors.
Echo hits Disney+ and Hulu with all episodes available on January 10th 2024.
