A series based on the character Echo, who will appear in 'Hawkeye' later this year, is in early development at Disney+.

According to Variety, the publication has learned that Alaqua Cox, who will play Echo in the upcoming MCU series 'Hawkeye', will be getting her own high-octant series in the future.

Maya Lopez AKA Echo is a deaf Native American character in the Marvel Comics. Typically seen in the comics as Daredevil's supporting character (for obvious reasons), she is able to expertly replicate an opponents fighting style and movement. She has a white handprint painted on her face, which is a reminder of the bloody handprint left by her dead father at the hands of Kingpin.

Alaqua Cox is a new talent that was discovered for the role in 'Hawkeye'. As to what connection she has with the Avenger will likely be revealed during the series, but it's probably a given that she's a friend of Kate Bishop, given that they are around the same age. It's expected that Kate (Hailee Steinfield) will take up the mantle of Hawkeye, with her father Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) showing her the ropes.

The 'Echo' series will see Etan and Emily Cohen write and executive produce the show, with Marvel Studios producing. Ethan Cohen's previous writing credits include 'Recess', 'King of the Hill', 'Tropic Thunder' and 'Men in Black 3', so we can expect some level of comedy as well as a bit of action thrown in for good measure.

Disney+'s 'Hawkeye' series is part of Marvel's current Phase Four plan and is scheduled for release at the end of 2021. If our guesses are correct, it'll arrive sometime after the 'Loki' and 'What If...?' series both wrap up this summer.
