Disney+ Confirms Marvel's Echo Series with a Shiny New Logo

Marvel Studios' Echo has been confirmed, along with an official logo for the upcoming Disney+ series.

Echo was officially announced during Disney+ Day, along with the series' official new logo. No other information was provided about the series, other than it would be "coming soon" to the streaming service. The character will make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Marvel's Hawkeye series.

Starring Alaqua Cox, Echo will follow deaf Native American superhero Maya Lopez/Echo. It was reported in March that the Echo spinoff series was in development, with Etan and Emily Cohen writing and producing the series. However, she will first appear in Marvel Studios/Disney+'s Hawkeye, which wrapped filming in April and will premiere on the streaming service in November. Cox recently shared a video of her workout routine as she prepared for her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. In April of this year, photos from the set of Hawkeye featured both Cox and Clint Barton/Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner in their comics-accurate costumes.

In a recent promo for the upcoming Hawkeye series, audiences were introduced to the MCU's latest villain, Fra Fee's The Clown. Cox's Maya Lopez/Echo was seen alongside him, with both characters seemingly holding Clint Barton hostage before he is rescued by Haylee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop. While Maya is typically a hero in the comics, it was unclear in the trailer why she would be working with The Clown, though it could have something to do with her adopted father, Wilson Fisk/Kingpin.

Echo's addition to the MCU was reported in December 2020, the same month that Hawkeye began production in New York City with Renner, Hailee Steinfeld and Jolt the dog-actor (aka. Lucky the Pizza Dog). The series will run for six episodes on Disney+ and follows Clint Barton (Renner) as he trains Kate Bishop (Steinfeld) to be the next Hawkeye. On top of that, there have been reports that both Renner and Steinfeld will reprise their Hawkeye roles in Echo as well.

Created by David Mack and Joe Quesada, Maya Lopez/Echo first appeared in Daredevil #9 in 1999 and is one of the few Native American and deaf characters in comics overall. Similar to the Avengers villain Taskmaster, Echo's powers include photographic reflexes, giving her the ability to perfectly mimic the movements of other people. Echo was first introduced to comics as a supporting character for Daredevil and it's speculated that her involvement in Hawkeye could be a way for Matthew Murdock/Daredevil to officially enter the MCU.

Hawkeye premieres Nov. 24 on Disney+.
