The intense MCU series, "Echo," promises action, violence, and a unique focus on a deaf and Indigenous character. Premiering on Jan 10, 2024, it'll be binge-worthy on Disney+ and Hulu.
Prepare for some jaw-dropping moments in Echo. Heads will roll, get bashed, and even explode in the first trailer for the upcoming MCU series Echo. This sneak peek is filled with violence, blood, and an abundance of thrilling moments. The trailer for this five-episode special event is truly a spectacle. Both Alaqua Cox, who plays Maya Lopez, and Vincent D'Onofrio, portraying Wilson Fisk, are delivering powerful performances. Echo promises to be a unique addition to the MCU, and fans are already loving it. If you're brave enough, take a look at the first trailer for Echo below.
We first met Echo in the Hawkeye series, which had a different tone. It's exhilarating to see her taking center stage in this outing. What's remarkable is that this Marvel show is centered around a deaf and Indigenous character, and it's evident that great care has been taken to ensure representation in front of and behind the camera.
A logline for the series, revealed in the trailer, gives us more insight into what to expect:
"No bad deed goes unpunished on Jan. 10, 2024, when Marvel Studios’ “Echo” launches on Disney+ and Hulu. 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. All five episodes will stream on Jan. 10 on both platforms. They’ll be available on Hulu until April 9. This marks the first Marvel Studios series to drop all entirely bingeable episodes at once."
The relationship between the MCU's Kingpin and Echo is fraught, as we've seen before and can witness again in this trailer. But when the chips fall, will Echo become as much of a monster as her mentor? Only time will tell. There were rumors that Charlie Cox's Daredevil would also make an appearance in the Echo show. While there's no official mention of him so far, keen-eyed fans spotted a brief glimpse of Daredevil in a montage of shots featured in Echo's trailer. This is undeniably thrilling for Marvel fans.
There are several noteworthy aspects of Echo's release. Firstly, the series will be available on both Hulu and Disney+, likely reflecting its grittier nature. Echo is also the first MCU series to be rated TV-MA, indicating a more mature tone. Furthermore, all episodes of Echo will be available at once. This is a departure from Disney+'s usual release format and will be interesting to see how it affects viewer engagement.
All five episodes of Echo will be ready for streaming on January 10, 2024. Marvel fans, mark your calendars.
