While fans are almost certain Daredevil will be present in the series, they are also eager to get a glimpse of the other names in the roaster. She claimed in that same interview,

“There are a number of cameos in our series, and fans of the MCU will see characters from other films and shows that they recognize. But at the same time, you don’t have to have done your homework coming into this. People who aren’t familiar with the MCU can still come in and watch this.”

“All roads lead to and from Maya Lopez. So if we were going to introduce characters that fans might be familiar with, they had to be in service of Maya Lopez and they had to be in service of her story. What we didn’t want to do was bring someone in just for the sake of bringing them in, we wanted to have a story motivation behind it.”

She further emphasized the Marvel Studios Spotlight angle of the series, aiming to address the concerns of fans overwhelmed by the extensive knowledge required to follow any Marvel project. This new banner strives to offer an accessible narrative where fans won’t need extensive prior research to follow and fully immerse themselves in the story.

Echo will be released on both Disney+ and Hulu on January 9th, 2024.
