We are still at least about six months out from seeing Marvel’s Hawkeye series on Disney+ and it appears they may already be working on a spinoff. A series focused on the popular hero known as Echo is reportedly in development, according to Variety.
- Alaqua Cox, who joined the cast of Hawkeye back in December, will portray the hero first in that series before getting her own.
- The Echo series is reportedly in the early stages of development for Disney+.
- Etan Cohen and Emily Cohen are on to executive produce and write the script for the new superhero series and the writers’ room was recently assembled.
- Marvel has not yet issued a comment on the news of this new series.
- Maya Lopez, also known as Echo, is a deaf Native American hero with the ability to copy another person’s movements or fighting style.
- In the comics, she holds the title of Ronin before passing it to Clint Barton, which points to her maybe having a relationship with Barton prior to the events of Avengers: Endgame.
