Marvels Echo Trailer: The first trailer for Marvel Studios’ Echo has left audiences in awe with its unexpected intensity. The level of violence, including Kingpin’s brutal assault and Echo’s fierce combat skills, has come as a shock to viewers. The brief appearance of Daredevil adds to the excitement, confirming the return of Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio as Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk for Echo.
What’s even more surprising is the release strategy for Echo. All episodes of this upcoming Marvel Studios series are set to drop simultaneously on January 10, 2024, on both Disney Plus and Hulu. However, Echo will be exclusively available on Hulu until April 9, 2024.
The show also seems to embrace the gritty, street-level action vibe reminiscent of Marvel’s earlier Netflix-produced series such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Punisher. Like its predecessors, Echo carries a TV-MA rating. The first trailer even advises viewers to “set your Disney Plus profile to TV-MA to stream.”
Echo’s storyline unfolds after the events of Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye, where Alaqua Cox’s Maya Lopez/Echo made her live-action debut. Reports suggest that the series will involve a plotline where Matt Murdock, the blind attorney and secret vigilante Daredevil, searches for an old ally, potentially Jessica Jones, the Marvel Comics character portrayed by Krysten Ritter.
Echo, a deaf Native American woman with the unique ability to mimic another person’s movements perfectly, first appeared in 1999’s Daredevil #9. She was created by David Mack and Joe Quesada.
Furthermore, Charlie Cox’s Daredevil is set to receive his standalone series on Disney Plus, titled Daredevil: Born Again, with the potential return of Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle, aka The Punisher. Marvel’s ventures into R-rated content will extend to theaters next year with the release of the next Deadpool movie, featuring Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson and Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Wolverine in a glorious comeback.
