Marvel Studios’ Echo – Limited Series [2023] on Disney Plus

Marvel Studios' Echo

Marvel Studios’ Echo mixes the MCU with the grittiness and blodiness of Daredevil. The show brings back a lot of great elements, without the weight on the cinematic universe.

Starring Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, the show focuses on the story of its titular character, Echo, after the events of Hawkeye.

In fact, it’s obvious that the show has been reworked to focus on Maya, and not the MCU. With five episodes of character and anger study, the show gives us 3 main things: The origin story of Echo all the way back to Daredevil Netflix’s timeline, an anger management crash course with lots of violence and not enough selfcare, and another Marvel connection to the indigenous people of the current United States #NoSpoilers.

Something here has clicked. Despite the shows truncated length and the obvious rushed sub-plots. It’s as if the heart that has been sucked out of the post-“Avengers: Endgame” MCU has slowly trickled back into the bones of a franchise trying to rebuild itself anew post the infamous Secret Invasion.

Echo is a good show – at times, a great one – that feels like high-end Marvel; it’s just not quite able to reach the heights of what it so desperately wants to be: the new Daredevil. And there’s no shame in that.

Should You Watch It?

Marvel’s Echo starts off slow, playing catchup for new viewers. But very quickly ramps up into Disney+’s most thrilling and bloody MCU offerings. I binged the whole thing in the first evening.
