No bad deed goes unpunished on Jan. 10, 2024, when Marvel Studios’ “Echo” launches on Disney+ and Hulu. Check out the all-new trailer and poster revealed this morning.

When the journey brings her home, she must confront her own family and legacy. All five episodes will stream on Jan. 10 on both platforms. They’ll be available on Hulu until April 9. This marks the first Marvel Studios series to drop all entirely bingeable episodes at once.

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.

Marvel's upcoming Disney+ series, Echo, gives us a glimpse into a harrowing story and introduces Marvel's first Native American and deaf lead. Echo is set to premiere on January 10 and will be the first Marvel series on Disney's streaming platform to have a TV-MA rating.

We first meet Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez in Hawkeye, and in Echo, Maya finds herself being pursued by Wilson Fisk, also known as Kingpin and his criminal empire. As her journey brings her back home, she must confront her own family and the legacy she carries.

Echo marks several firsts for Marvel Studios. As mentioned earlier, this series is grittier than its predecessors, hence the TV-MA rating. Director and executive producer Sydney Freeland shared during a recent press screening that they wanted to fully embrace Maya's villainess and portray the raw reality of her story. Taking inspiration from Marvel's Daredevil and Punisher, they aimed to capture both the storytelling and visual elements that make those series so compelling.

Despite Maya being a character who can't hear or speak, Freeland made sure that the series remained centered on her. The production team even took American Sign Language classes and tailored the visual style around Cox, ensuring that the lead character never gets lost in the intense sequences.

In addition to Alaqua Cox, Echo also stars Chaske Spencer, Graham Greene, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, Zahn McClarnon, Cody Lightning, and Vincent D'Onofrio.

The series is directed by Sydney Freeland and Catriona McKenzie, with executive producers including Kevin Feige, Stephen Broussard, Louis D'Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Richie Palmer, Jason Gavin, Marion Dayre, and Sydney Freeland. Jennifer L. Booth and Amy Rardin serve as co-executive producers.

All the "experts" who said Disney would never do this kind of rating content.

At any rate, I'm glad they're coming to their senses and realizing certain properties are just going to have to be what they are, if they're going to be successful. Now this doesn't mean everything could or even should swing that way; Blade yes but Wonderman, no. At least now more projects have a better chance of existing. 

So lets see a decent Werewolf by Night this time. And where's my Killraven miniseries...

I just don't understand why Disney lost the simple concept of just making a good show and people will watch. Seriously thats all we need. Whoever you put in the show. Whatever rating you give it. As long as it gets the job done and the final product I good. I love the Echo character concept and i like the character from the comic but I really don't like the actor they chose to portray her and i think they did a terible job with her on the Hawkeye show but if this show is good I'll watch. Simple as that.

TV production is so political, with so many agendas going on and so much money and other tangibles riding on it that they have this overwhelming compulsion to "get things right".

But they frequently end up getting in their own way.  That's why a lot of these things are essentially created by a committee, with so much consultation and compromise that tripping up is a common problem.  The foundational thought is........of course.........why don't they let ONE person make all the judgment calls?   Sure.........but they follow that with "what if they are WRONG"???  Some much money rides on it, so much risk that they constantly second-guess themselves.

BUT.............the same mechanism that can make these shows fail.......is also the very same means that they can create something successful.  it has to be hammered out, and it has to appease a LOT of people in the process.  It is not easy or simple, by any stretch.

Wasn't big on Echo getting her own show, I felt it seemed highly unnecessary, but it was always going to boil down to, did it look good and was it going to entertain, this trailer looks decent, it's really fun to see this way more comic accurate looking kingpin, and he seems as ruthless if not more then in Daredevil, The TV MA rating here has me hopeful that this will have some edge to it that we need in the MCU.

Read an interview with one of the creators who was touting her having "cooler powers than her lame comic powers". This is really the problem with all these creators who are indeed getting in their own way. The hubris to say they are going to make it better often IS the problem. And the tonedeaf way that this guy thought comic fans and fans of the character from Hawkeye were gonna be excited that they changed her powers. If they don't like the powers or any other characteristics, they really should just use one of the thousands of Marvel characters and utilize them in that place. Or just don't be allowed to change the fundamentals of the character.

Well if she's got such "lame" powers why the french toast is he even doing the show?? If he's saying this in an interview thats supposed to hype the series before it even airs, then how's he gonna treat the character later?

Well I used to think the better writers worked in the comic industry so automatically the comics characters and stories were naturally better. But I eventually came to the realization that any writer with any real creativity or fresh ideas was either already working in Hollywood or would be shortly. It's just a money thing. There's a lot more in movies and TV. Of course there are still a ton of talentless airbags as well that are still employed in high places for a myriad of other reasons we won't go into. But by the writing of pretty much all Big comics in probably the last decade or so I'd honestly say comics probably has the lower 3rd of capable writing talents. Gone are the days of real ideas men like Stan and Jack and Steve. Or even Shooter or Claremont. I mean when Dan Slott and Donny Cates and the rest of the Same Formula But In A Different Book crew are considered the cream of the crop we are in some serious hard times.

So I said that to say this. The Hollywood writers were able to improve on a character like Kamala Khan except for the Mutant thing. And also many of the Black Order so to think they could do it with Echo is not a stretch. What I don't like is that they'll probably OP her now. One of the things I liked about her was she was another hero on the level of Daredevil. With some serious limitations but with other skills to elevate them above and beyond those limits. From what I hear they're going to have her develope some kind of Black Canary type echo-sound powers so that puts her at a much higher power level. Essentially ruining what made her a halfway unique character in the first place.

A new trailer for Echo has been unveiled with cautionary notices about the TV-MA rating and discloses a modification in the program's release date.  Rather than premiering on both Disney+ and Hulu on Wednesday, January 10th, all five episodes of the show will now be available on the service starting from Tuesday, January 9th.

Agreed Moon Knights goofy tone and then healing factor he doesn't have really annoyed me. I liked it better than hated it overall, but felt like it really needed to be better and represent Marc Spector more. More violence, action, and monsters.

Omg. I literally lost interest in this trailer half the way through. I had to rewind 3 times just to get through it. All hopes of this thing being any good are long gone.

Yeaaaaahh, this one comes across as luke-warm. Violence isn't a selling point for me anymore, and I thought Echo was the least interesting character in Hawkeye.  Marvel Studios has been struggling to land something that works on screen, and this is another one to add to the pile.

Everything from Netflix is canon, that's finally official as evidenced. I wouldn't mind it if all of that was supposed to be a universe of it's own, but making it canon in the main timeline of the MCU makes sense, not only because it's some of the best TV show work from Marvel, but also because we've already seen these actors reprise their roles in other projects and that clears whatever confusion there might be as to what takes place in the MCU and what doesn't. Anyway I hope we'll see Daredevil in his red suit and a more screen accurate Kingpin from this show ( along with Echo of course ) in some kinda D+ wave that we'll surely get this year.
