All episodes of Echo, the upcoming Hawkeye spinoff, will premiere on Disney+ at once this winter, plus the Loki season 2 release date.
Up until now, all Marvel TV shows on Disney+ have been released weekly, but Echo will change that. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced during Disney’s Upfronts that all episodes of Echo will premiere at once on November 29th.
“In Hawkeye, fans were first introduced to Maya Lopez, a character played by Alaqua Cox,” Kevin Feige said. “She will return to get her revenge in Echo, a limited drama from an incredible team of indigenous writers, directors and cast members. And in a first for us all episodes will drop on November 29.” There were rumblings that the release of Echo, along with other MCU shows, could be pushed back to 2024, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with the Hawkeye spinoff.
Marvel also announced that Loki season 2 will premiere on October 6th, but unlike Echo, it will stick with a weekly release schedule. Owen Wilson guessed two months ago that the second season would likely debut in September, so an October release isn’t far off. Wilson once again stars alongside Tom Hiddleston in Loki season 2, but the new season will include a few fresh faces, include Everything Everywhere All at Once Oscar winner Ke Huy Quan.
Alaqua Cox made her MCU debut as Maya Lopez in Hawkeye. She was determined to make Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) pay for the death of her father, but by the end of the series, comes to understand that another is more responsible. The last we saw of Lopez, she was confronting Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) and we heard a single shot ring out.
The Echo series will revisit Maya Lopez, whose ruthless behavior 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. In addition to Alaqua Cox, Echo also stars Chaske Spencer (The English), Tantoo Cardinal (Killers of the Flower Moon), Devery Jacobs (Reservation Dogs) and Cody Lightning (Four Sheets to the Wind), with Graham Greene (1883) and Zahn McClarnon (Westworld). Vincent D’Onofrio and Charlie Cox are also expected to return as Kingpin and Daredevil, respectively.
