Echo: Hawkeye’s Disney+ Series Is Already Getting A Spinoff

Echo is a Marvel character making her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in this year’s Hawkeye Disney+ series. Yet, Echo is already getting a spinoff series.

Echo is a deaf Native American superhero played by Alaqua Cox in Hawkeye. Her real name is Maya Lopez. Her power is to perfectly copy another person’s movements, including fighting style.

Echo’s main connection to Hawkeye in the comics is she was the first Ronin, later handing the title to Hawkeye aka Clint Barton. It is unlikely this part of the storyline will be used as we’ve seen Barton as Ronin already in Avengers: Endgame. The MCU is always looking for fun ways to adapt storylines while being true to the comics, so perhaps she starts as Ronin in the upcoming Hawkeye series.

Variety broke the story, reporting the Echo series is in early stages of development. Etan Cohen and Emily Cohen (not to be confused with the Coen Brothers) are attached to write and executive produce. The writers room is being assembled, as it were.

Hawkeye sees Jeremy Renner returning as Clint Barton who now has a protégé in Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld). It comes out sometime in late 2021.

Between Bishop, Echo, and all the other young superheroes we’re seeing across all the Marvel Disney+ series, it certainly feels like we’ll have a Young Avengers of Champions series in the not-so-distant future.
