Synopsis and First-Look Image for Disney+ Echo Series Revealed

Marvel Studios productions have tried to play in the sandbox of different genres since the start of the MCU. The Disney+ shows, especially so, from the sitcom tributes of WandaVision to the animated What If…?, political intrigue of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and split personality of Moon Knight. But now, with the Echo series spinning off from Hawkeye, a new synopsis makes it sound more like a Sundance-style homecoming drama than anything else in the MCU so far.

Via Marvel, “the origin story of Echo revisits Maya Lopez, whose ruthless behavior in New York City catches up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots and embrace the meaning of family and community if she ever hopes to move forward.” Now, comic-based shows being what they are, some fighting must surely be involved. Still, that sounds more like the plot of an Oscar-bait prestige film than a superhero adventure. And in the first official image, she looks ready to do some honest, hard work:

Marvel also confirmed recent casting announcements, including Chaske Spencer, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, Cody Lightning, Graham Greene, and Zahn McClarnon. (Fans hoping to hear anything about Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin might just have to keep hoping.) Episodes of the series will be directed by Sydney Freeland and Catriona McKenzie. Alaqua Cox stars as Echo/Maya. We’ll get to see it in 2023.
