An official trailer has finally been unveiled for Marvel’s Echo, a spin-off from Hawkeye scheduled to come to Disney Plus in 2023.


The footage, which was exclusive to those in the room at Marvel’s D23 Expo on Saturday (10th September 2022), gives fans a first look at Alaqua Cox as Echo. At the end of the trailer, Vincent D'Onofrio makes a dramatic return as the villainous Kingpin and is wearing an eyepatch.

The new series will continue the story of Echo/Maya Lopez, the adoptive daughter of Kingpin, who was last seen seeking bloody revenge on him for his involvement in the death of her biological father.

"What a journey this has been. This is only the second role I’ve ever had," Cox said on stage at the D23 panel, adding: "This is such an amazing feeling. To only be my second lead. It’s great."

She previously said of her role: "It's just so crazy that I'm getting my own show after Hawkeye. That was like my first acting role, ever.

"I don't know why they're giving me this opportunity, but I'm just grateful. I'm excited for the support and being able to advocate for the Deaf community. We want to have that equality and get more people involved. I'm just so grateful for all of the opportunities I've been given."

She continued: "It's crazy how much my life has already changed because I was a college dropout. I worked at a factory. I'm so excited to show people who I am and what I can do, what anybody can do."

Joining Cox in Echo are Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock AKA Daredevil, Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez, and Devery Jacobs as Julie.

Meanwhile, it was also confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con that Vincent D'Onofrio will reprise his role as her surrogate father, Kingpin/Wilson Fisk after their scenes in Hawkeye.

Fisk's nemesis, Daredevil/Matt Murdock, will also appear in the series, with Charlie Cox reprising the role, having appeared in both Spider-Man: No Way Home and She-Hulk: Attorney At Law prior to this.

Other cast members confirmed to be starring in the series include Chaske Spencer (The English), Tantoo Cardinal (Killers of the Flower Moon), Devery Jacobs (Reservation Dogs), Cody Lightning (Hey, Viktor!), Graham Greene (Wind River) and Zahn McClarnon (Westworld), reprising his role as Maya's deceased father, William Lopez.

Jacobs is set to play a new character named Julie, but little is known about her role besides the name.

Despite the dramatic events of the Hawkeye season one finale, Fra Fee is keen to return as Maya's former friend and fellow Tracksuit Mafia member Kazimierz "Kazi" Kazimierczak, who tragically died by her hand.

He told earlier in December 2021: “I mean, are you kidding? Of course, I would love to be part of it. But my phone is on at the moment, and there hasn’t been a phone call just yet. We’ll just have to wait and see. Who knows?”

We should also not rule out cameos from fellow Hawkeye cast members Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) and Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh).

Marvel’s Echo plot speculation

Vincent D'Onofrio as Kingpin in Hawkeye.

A new synopsis for the series states that the series will tell "the origin story of Echo" and will revisit "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."

We suspect that while the Echo series will pick up after the events of Hawkeye, it will have plenty of flashbacks to Maya's life before she went on her quest for revenge against Ronin, especially given McClarnon's return as Maya's father, who died before the events of Hawkeye.

The series will likely continue to focus on Maya's relationship with the Kingpin and her criminal connections, even if she is attempting to forge a new destiny.

The final episode of Hawkeye saw Maya turn her back on the Tracksuit Mafia and lose her beloved best friend Kazi.

Confronting a wounded Fisk in her final scene, Maya pointed her gun at the man responsible for the death of the two most important people in her life and Fisk tried to talk his way out of it.

The camera panned upwards as we heard a shot ring out and the sound of a body dropping down.

Did Maya really kill the Kingpin? It seems not considering D'Onofrio will be portraying Fisk in the series.
