What’s Marvel Studios’ Echo about?
Along with the release of this first official photo, Marvel Studios also released the official synopsis for Alaqua Cox’s Echo series, confirming that we will be seeing more of the character’s origins, which were briefly touched on in Hawkeye:
“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.”
Serving as executive producers on Echo are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Stephen Broussard, Richie Palmer, Marion Dayre, and Jason Gavin, while Amy Rardin, Sydney Freeland, Christina King, and Jennifer Booth will serve as co-executive producers.
Alaqua Cox made her debut as Echo in Hawkeye. Here is the 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, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin. Florence Pugh also returned in her Black Widow role.
The first season of Hawkeye is now available to stream on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding Alaqua Cox’s Echo, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
