“Echo” was created by Marion Dayre, and is intended to be the 10th television series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, pending any additional schedule changes, of course. Other members of the cast include Chaske Spencer (“Wild Indian,” “The English”), Tantoo Cardinal (“Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Stumptown”), Devery Jacobs (“Reservation Dogs,” “American Gods”), and Cody Lightning (“Hey, Viktor!,” “Four Sheets to the Wind”), with Graham Greene (“1883,” “Goliath”) and Zahn McClarnon (“Dark Winds,” “Reservation Dogs”). McClarnon played Echo’s father in “Hawkeye,” so his appearance would likely mean flashbacks.
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.
The series will also be the first Marvel Studios series to release all of its episodes at once, becoming the first MCU show fans can binge-watch on the day of release. Timeline wise, “Echo” is classified as being part of Phase Five of the MCU.
“Echo” will bring all five episodes of the series Disney+ and Hulu starting on January 10, 2024.
