Here comes ‘Echo,’ Some TV-MA from Marvel

We’re big fans of Native American trans filmmaker Sydney Freeland’s indie drama “Drunktown’s Finest,” and we were thrilled to learn that she’d be taking the lead on a new project for Marvel, “Echo.” Well, the trailer just dropped for the violent adult-oriented “Hawkeye” spinoff series starring Alaqua Cox, and it’ll be the first time a Marvel TV project has earned a TV-MA rating. Plot-wise, it’ll involve the character of Echo/Maya Lopez (Cox), a young deaf woman returning from New York — the setting of “Hawkeye” — to her home in Oklahoma where she’ll reconnect with her Native American roots and deal with the past she left behind. The series also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Charlie Cox (“Daredevil”) and Devery Jacobs and Zahn McClarnon (both “Reservation Dogs”), Academy Award nominee for “Dances with Wolves,” Graham Greene, and “Killers of the Flower Moon” co-star Tantoo Cardinal. So yes, the cast is packed, the trailer looks dark, and it all hits Hulu and Disney+ on Jan. 10. Mark your calendar.
