‘Echo’ is the latest TV series set to shine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). It’s going to be the tenth television series in the MCU lineup, and it’s got fans buzzing with excitement. The show will be available on Disney+ and Hulu on January 10, 2024.
Echo dives deep into Maya Lopez’s story. If you remember her from ‘Hawkeye’ (2021), you’ll know her as Echo. This time, the series brings Maya back to her roots in Oklahoma. She’s on a journey to face her past, reconnect with her Native American heritage, and get closer to her community.
But here’s where things get really intriguing. According to rumors by the industry insider, CanWeGetSomeToast on Twitter, a big part of the show will draw parallels between Maya and the Kingpin. They share a burning anger, a rage that has been part of them since they were kids. It’s a powerful theme of the series: how anger shapes who you are.

A central theme of the show is how anger affects who you are. Kingpin recognizes a rage that has been inside of Maya ever since she was a child. Similar to the rage he had… when he was a boy. https://t.co/3fKcuhoLOJ pic.twitter.com/E4B4DYGhh7
Speaking of the cast, the talented Alaqua Cox will be returning as Maya Lopez or Echo. She won hearts in ‘Hawkeye,’ and there’s no doubt she’ll do it again. Alongside her, you’ll see familiar faces like Vincent D’Onofrio, who’ll be reprising his role as Kingpin. There’s also Charlie Cox, Zahn McClarnon, Devery Jacobs, Cody Lightning, Tantoo Cardinal, Graham Greene, and Chaske Spencer. It’s a strong lineup and one that promises top-notch performances.
Marion Dayre takes the helm as the head writer of Echo. Dayre has a knack for weaving powerful narratives, and with Sydney Freeland and Catriona McKenzie directing, the series is in capable hands.
Fans have been waiting for Echo since its announcement back in November 2021. The show was filmed across the Atlanta metropolitan area, from Atlanta itself to places like Peachtree City and Grantville, Georgia. Marvel has been tight-lipped about many details, but from the hints dropped so far, it’s clear ‘Echo’ will be something special.
Echo breaks new ground by debuting on Hulu, marking it as Marvel’s inaugural show to receive a TV-MA rating. This unique series is presented under the “Marvel Spotlight” banner, adding another layer of anticipation for fans.
So, if you’re looking for a story about facing your past, understanding your roots, and dealing with deep-seated emotions, mark your calendars for ‘Echo’. It promises to be a riveting ride.
