Marvel Studios Releases New “Echo” Featurettes and Key Art

Marvel Echo

Marvel Studios will release it’s newest series “Echo” on both Disney+ and Hulu on January 9, 2024, and to get everyone ready, it has released some new videos and key art.

The Series

Audiences first met Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), aka Echo, in “Hawkeye,” along with Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), aka Kingpin, in the “Hawkeye” series.

Maya was introduced by Hawkeye as the leader of the Tracksuit Mafia, a gang that was part of Kingpin’s larger criminal empire. But by the end of that series, Maya had wanted to leave the criminal life behind and she confronts Fisk with a gun, seemingly shooting him.

In “Echo,” she is being pursued by Kingpin’s criminal empire. When the journey brings her home to her Choctaw family, she must confront both her own family and legacy.

The character of Echo is both Marvel’s first Native American lead and first deaf lead character in a Marvel series. Her nickname comes from the fact that she can can perfectly replicate another person’s moves.

“Echo” also stars Chaske Spencer, Graham Greene, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, Zahn McClarnon, and Cody Lightning. There is a rumor that Charlie Cox’s Daredevil will cameo, as well.

The series will mark Marvel’s first TV-MA rating for a show on Disney+, so you may need to adjust your Disney+ profile to watch it. It will also be the first title to be released under the new “Marvel Spotlight” banner.

All five episodes of this series will drop at once on January 9 at 9pm ET/6pm PT on both Disney+ and Hulu. All episodes will be available with a Choctaw dub.

The Videos

This first video is a new trailer showing scenes from the show, but a warning, there is some violence and blood:

The next video focuses on the character of Kingpin, including footage from Marvel’s “Daredevil” series, which originated on Netflix, but is now available on Disney+. It sets up the events that created the conflict between him and Maya. Again, warning for violence and blood:

This is another trailer for the series, and it focuses on Maya’s deafness and how it affects how she lives her life. Watch to the end to see the title of the show spelled in ASL as a nod to her deafness.

The final video focues on Maya’s Choctaw heritage and how the series brought that into the story, embracing the culture. Go behind the scenes to see how working closely with Choctaw Nation helped bring Marvel Studios‘ Echo to life:
