Echo first appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Marvel Studios’ Hawkeyes series on Disney+. Also known as Maya Lopez, she was the deaf gang leader who wanted to take down Ronin aka Clint Barton. Today, it has been officially announced that production is underway in Atlanta for the Echo series. It will be headed exclusively to Disney+ in 2023 with Alaqua Cox reprising her role as the titular character.

In addition to the announcement, the first-look photo has been released featuring Cox as Echo.

The last time we saw Echo, she found out that the Kingpin was behind her father’s death. She took it upon herself to end his reign by shooting him in the head in the Hawkeye series. The camera panned away, so you can bet that the Kingpin will be alive after that.

The scene follows the comics closely (Daredevil #15 – 1998), and in the comics, it turns out that the Kingpin was just blinded. Will the Echo series follow the comic? Will we see the return of Vincent D’onofrio as the Kingpin? Fans will find out for sure next year when the show is released in 2023.
