- Marvel Studios has released the first trailer for their upcoming MCU TV show, Echo, giving fans a glimpse of Alaqua Cox’s spinoff series.
- Echo season 1 will be available for streaming on Disney+ and Hulu starting January 10, 2024.
- All episodes will be released on the same day, and viewers can set their Disney+ profile to TV-MA to access the show.
The first look at the next Marvel Cinematic Universe series has officially been revealed as Marvel Studios has debuted the first Echo show trailer. One of the newest additions to the MCU in Phase 4 was long-time Daredevil supporting character Echo, who got her live-action debut in Hawkeye in 2021. However, Hawkeye was simply the beginning for her as Echo is now getting her own MCU TV show.
As Loki season 2 is coming to an end on November 9, Disney+ is getting ready for their next MCU TV show as they revealed the first Echo show trailer, giving a first look at Alaqua Cox’s spinoff series. Disney+ also revealed that Echo will be rated TV-MA, making it one of the more violent MCU shows in a long time.
Marvel Studios and Disney+ also provided new Echo artwork as well as an updated series synopsis for the “five-episode streaming event,” as this is the first time any non-Netflix MCU TV show drops all their episodes in one go. Check out the Echo poster and plot synopsis below:
The five-episode streaming event spotlights Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) as she is pursued by Wilson Fisk’s (Vincent D’Onofrio) criminal empire. When the journey brings her home, she must confront her own family and legacy.
What The Echo Trailer Reveals About Marvel’s Next Show
One of the key elements in Hawkeye season 1 was the introduction of Echo and Kingpin’s long history, as it was revealed that Wilson Fisk became her adoptive father. While Hawkeye scratched the surface, the Echo trailer puts her and Kingpin at the center of the MCU drama. Not only does the Echo trailer provide flashbacks to her childhood as Kingpin got more active in her life, but the footage also gives a first look at Wilson after she almost killed him in the Hawkeye season 1 finale.
For the criticism that Kingpin got in Hawkeye in terms of the tone they took in approaching his character, the Echo trailer is making up for it. There are plenty of bits and pieces where Kingpin gets to show his violent side, a lot more resembling what viewers saw in Netflix’s Daredevil TV show. While it’s not entirely clear, the Echo footage also seemingly gives a first look at Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, as she can be seen fighting with someone in a dark red uniform.
The Echo trailer also gives a look at Maya’s return home, exploring her Native American culture, something the MCU hasn’t focused a lot on in past projects. Based on the new footage alone, Echo season 1 will definitely be an interesting journey, especially as she is one of the more obscure characters in the Marvel canon to get the chance to lead her own TV show. With only about two months left to go, the Echo marketing campaign is now in effect.
All episodes of Echo season 1 will be release Wednesday, January 10, 2024, on Disney+ and Hulu.
