Echo is an upcoming spin-off of Marvel Studio’s Hawkeye, the Disney+ series where we first met Alanqua Cox who plays Echo. Production for the show is about to get underway in Peachtree City, Georgia which has a long and interesting history revolving around the city’s Native American population. Filming is slated to begin on April 25th and should last four months. The plot of Echo will pick up where Hawkeye left off; When Echo was a small girl, Maya Lopez’s father, a Cheyenne gangster, was killed by his partner in crime, the Kingpin. The last wish of her father was that Fisk raise the child well, a wish the Kingpin honored, caring for her as if she was his own. Believed to be mentally handicapped, Maya was sent to an expensive school for people with learning disabilities. There, she managed to completely replicate a song on the piano. After that, she was sent to another expensive school for prodigies. She grew into a gifted and talented woman. Upon visiting her father’s grave with Fisk, she asked how he died. Fisk told her that Daredevil had killed him.
