Fans were surprised when they learned that the TV Series is a massive hit but it was made with a budget that breaks major Marvel Cinematic Universe records. As per Forbes, the show has been made a mere budget of $40 million, which is “less than 20% of some of the MCU’s enormous, unwieldy series like She-Hulk and Secret Invasion.”

This is a TV-MA show. This is an adult show. Just like the Marvel Knights Comics where Echo first started, it goes much deeper and much darker in ways that we could only do with a TV-MA rating, so I am excited for people to see, as readers of the comics know, the different tonalities that we’ve been able to do in all of our shows and this being the darkest one yet.”

The success of the show with its puny budget, makes Echo one of the best works of Marvel, and they would look forward to continuing the story of Maya Lopez aka Echo.
