Marvel Studios is planning something interesting in store for Echo, the upcoming Disney+ series now filming in Atlanta. Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio, who are portrayed in classic Marvel Comics characters Daredevil and The Kingpin, finally stepped into the series, which stars Hawkeye breakout Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez.
Reports convey Echo will involve a plotline in which Daredevil, whose alter ego is blind attorney Matt Murdoch, is looking for a former ally. Podcast The Weekly Planet has also reported that the ally is Jessica Jones, another Marvel character who came up with her own Netflix series and the role was played by Krysten Ritter.
Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio Set to Return for Marvel Series ‘Echo’
This duo is loved by fans and it set a higher goal for what a superhero-villain confrontation could look like on TV. Charlie Cox’s time as Daredevil was edited short in Netflix, which had an agreement with Disney to produce Marvel projects, then they terminated Daredevil in 2018 as Disney wanted to launch its opponent streaming service, Disney+.
On the other hand, just days before No Way Home was released in theaters, Vincent D’Onofrio was demonstrated to be the big bad in Hawkeye. Following months since Disney+ moved Daredevil and other Netflix shows to the service and requested a new Daredevil series, which would be its fourth season. Last February, Charlie Cox told THR he wanted to reunite with Vincent D’Onofrio onscreen:
“I am imagining, I am hoping, that our worlds will collide again because the stuff we’ve done in the past was tremendous fun to do, and he’s such an incredible actor.”
hopefully they learned from hawkeye and don't make him stupid at least

Soft reboot incoming. Get ready for that sweet cookie cutter nonsensical plot and PG-13 action. Wouldn't even be surprised if Kingpin cracks a couple of jokes as he was "literally" invincible in Hawkeye
