Disney has released the first trailer for the upcoming Marvel Studios series, “Echo”, which will premiere with all five episodes on Disney+ on January 10th 2024. The show will also be available on Hulu on the same day for a limited time until April 9th 2024. This marks a massive shift in Disney’s release strategy for the show, with the entire series being released at once and also being released on Hulu.
“Echo” is also going to be much more mature than previous MCU shows as it will be rated TV-MA for mature audiences. The show is going to be the origin story of Echo revisits Maya Lopez, whose ruthless behaviour 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. And if you look closely, you might even spot Daredevil in one scene!
Check out the “Echo” trailer below:
“Echo” also stars Chaske Spencer (“Wild Indian,” “The English”), Graham Greene (“1883,” “Goliath”), Tantoo Cardinal (“Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Stumptown”), Devery Jacobs (FX’s “Reservation Dogs,” “American Gods”), Zahn McClarnon (“Dark Winds,” FX’s “Reservation Dogs”), Cody Lightning (“Hey, Viktor!” “Four Sheets to the Wind”) and Vincent D’Onofrio (“Hawkeye,” “Godfather of Harlem”).
Episodes of the series are directed by Sydney Freeland (Navajo) and Catriona McKenzie (Gunaikurnai). Executive producers are Kevin Feige, Stephen Broussard, Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Richie Palmer, Jason Gavin (Blackfeet), Marion Dayre and Sydney Freeland. Co-executive producers are Jennifer L. Booth and Amy Rardin.
A poster for the series was also released:
While Disney has released some Marvel content on Hulu in the past, such as a couple episodes of “Secret Invasion” and the “Werewolf By Night” special, this marks the full Marvel Studios release on Disney+ at the same time. With Disney set to complete its purchase of Hulu in December and with plans to eventually merge the platforms together, we are likely to start seeing much more sharing between Hulu and Disney+, especially following the recent strikes, where there is less original content to be released.
While we wait for “Echo”, you can catch up on the character in the “Hawkeye” series, along with both Daredevil and Kingpin, in the “Daredevil” series.
