Hawkeye star Alaqua Cox recently shared that filming on the Echo spin-off series will begin on Thursday.
While there’s been no word on whether or not Marvel Studios will pursue a season two of Hawkeye, it’s been known that a spin-off series following Alaqua Cox’s Echo has been in development. The last we saw of Echo, she seemingly shot Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin in Hawkeye.
It’s also been rumored that Vincent D’Onofrio, Charlie Cox, and Graham Greene will appear in Echo as well. However, not much official news about the Echo project has been revealed in a while, but Alaqua Cox did drop on a recent Instagram Story that filming will kick off on Thursday. You can check out a screenshot of the Echo update below.
Echo marks another major milestone for Marvel Studios, with the series being the first to have a deaf and Native American actor in the lead role. Marion Dayre is serving as the head writer on the Echo series and Sydney Freeland will direct at least one episode.
Alaqua Cox’s last appearance as Echo was in Hawkeye. Here is the official synopsis:
Former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. Possible? Maybe with the help of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a Super Hero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit.
Hawkeye stars Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfeld, Tony Dalton, Fra Free, Brian d’Arcy James, Aleks Paunovic, Piotr Adamczyk, Linda Cardellini, Simon Callow, Vera Farmiga, Alaqua Cox, Florence Pugh, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin. Kevin Feige served as an executive producer on the series.
Hawkeye is available to stream on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding Echo and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
