Last month on Disney+ Day, Disney confirmed Marvel Studios’ “Echo” series for Disney+.
Echo was just introduced in the new Hawkeye series on Disney+. The deaf Native American character whose real name is Maya Lopez, is played by Alaqua Cox. She has the ability to perfectly copy another person’s movements or fighting style, making her a formidable opponent on the battlefield. Not much is known about the series, but sources indicate Etan and Emily Cohen are attached to write and executive produce.
According to a new report from Murphy’s Multiverse, Reservation Dogs director Sydney Freeland might be on board to direct at least one episode of the series. Murphy’s points out that there is enough evidence to make a reasonable claim that Sydney Freeland will direct one or even all of the episodes of Echo. As you can see, Freeland is following Cox, Dayre, Roanhorse, and Bobby Wilson, who like the others above was named by Dayre as a writer. An abundance of data points like this cannot be considered confirmation, but it can absolutely fuel the speculation that she could be working on the project.
Freeland was a Disney Scholarship recipient in 2007 and a Disney Fellowship semifinalist in 2008. Freeland wrote and directed the award-winning Drunktown’s Finest. Most recently Freeland directed two episodes of FX’s Reservations Dogs.
Marvel’s “Echo” series will reportedly start production in Spring 2022. A release date on Disney+ has not been announced yet.
