After years of playing as a supporting character in the MCU, Hawkeye finally got his solo series. Jeremy Renner plays Clint Barton/Hawkeye alongside Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop/Hawkeye. However, it is not. The series is full of surprises. We are introduced to another character, Echo. It is played by Alaqua Cox. Who is she? Maya Lopez/Echo first appeared in Daredevil #9 in 1999 by David Mack and Joe Quesada. She is one of the few Native American and deaf characters in the comics, in general when we see it. But why are we talking about her? To look at:
Kevin Feige and Rhys Thomas Reveal ’s Storyline Will Lead Straight to Another Series
Why we’re talking about Maya Lopez/Echo is because she will be making her debut in the Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld. The character of Echo is played by Alaqua Cox. However, the nature of the role in the series is still unknown. In March, it was reported that the Echo spin-off series was in development. But it was finally confirmed during Disney+ Day with the official logo of the series.
Kevin Feige said:She is amazing,He further said:I can’t wait for people who have seen the first two episodes to see a very brief moment. It will be fun to see how the public discovers Maya during this series and later in her series.”
The storyline of the Hawkeye series leads directly to another series and that is the Echo spin-off. It is also noted that Jeremy and Hailee will also be in the series!
From the Hawkeye series, a recent promo introduced us to a new villain, The Clown. But what was funny is that Maya/Echo was seen next to him. Plus, they both held Clint as a hostage until Kate came to rescue him. This is funny because Maya usually plays the hero in the comics. So, what is she doing with The Clown?
About Maya Lopez/Echo, played by Alaqua Cox:
Maya Lopez/Echo first appeared in Daredevil comics as a supporting character. Hence, it is speculated that this may open the doors for Matt Murdock/Daredevil’s entry into the MCU.
Her powers are comparable to Taskmaster, the villain of Avengers. She has the power of photographic reflexes. This gives her the ability to perfectly copy the movements of other people.
The Hawkeye series will premiere on November 24, 2021 and then all our doubts will be cleared!
