Marvel’s Echo: A spinoff of Hawkeye
Echo will explore the origin story of Maya Lopez as she escapes New York and went to her hometown following the events of Hawkeye.
From Marvel’s Echo, Cox made her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Maya Lopez, who is the deaf commander of the Tracksuit Mafia and was raised by Kingpin after the death of her father. The show primarily saw Maya hunting down Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop for their interference with the gang’s activities as well as for revenge for her father’s murder by Ronin which led her to the truth that Kingpin was the true culprit behind his murder.

Marvel Studios has shared the first look at Alaqua Cox’s Echo for the show. As per Marvel’s Synopsis on the Echo,” 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.”
Cox first appeared in Hawkeye last December, serving as one of the Kingpin’s top lieutenants, which made Hawkeye her professional acting debut. As its production already started, the first-look image of Echo is offering an exciting look at Cox’s new costume giving a similar purple hue as seen in the Hawkeye finale though featuring a design departing from the comics-accurate one seen in the prior series.
While Echo will premiere in 2023 on Disney+, fans can watch her MCU debut with Hawkeye which is available on Disney+ now.
