Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye series doesn’t even have a trailer yet, and Disney+ is already giving it a spin-off as Variety reports that the streaming service is in the early development stages for a series based upon one of its the MCU’s newest characters.
In the upcoming Hawkeye series, we’ll meet Echo, a deaf Native American superhero played by newcomer Alaqua Cox. As per Variety, Etan Cohen and Emily Cohen are attached to write and executive produce the spinoff, and Marvel Studios is currently gathering together a writer’s room.
Echo, real name Maya Lopez, is known as a fairly bad-ass character in the comics. She can perfectly copy another person’s movements or fighting style – much like Taskmaster, the villain in the upcoming Black Widow movie. Echo is no stranger to working with some of the big Marvel names, having crossed paths with iconic characters like Daredevil, Moon Knight, and even the Avengers.
Hawkeye sees Jeremy Renner returning as Clint Barton alongside Hailee Steinfeld (Bumblebee) as Kate Bishop, Florence Pugh (Black Widow) as Yelena Belova, Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring) as Eleanor Bishop, Fra Fee (Les Miserables) as Kazi, Tony Dalton (Better Call Saul) as Jack Duquesne, Zahn McClarnon (Fargo) as William Lopez and newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez.
