ECHO: Disney+ Series Reportedly Enlists DAREDEVIL And THE PUNISHER Writers

Hawkeye introduced us to Alaqua Cox's Maya Lopez, and the plan is for her to take centre stage in spinoff series, Echo. However, news about the show's writing team is generating speculation online...

We don't know when exactly Echo will arrive on Disney+, but there's a lot of excitement for the Hawkeye spinoff. Alaqua Cox proved herself a real talent, but with rumours swirling about the show also including characters like Daredevil and The Kingpin, fans of the Man Without Fear are understandably curious to also see how their story will play out there. 

Something that's sure to add more fuel to the speculative fire is the news that the Echo writer's room will include a couple of scribes familiar with the corner of the MCU explored on Netflix. 

According to The Illuminerdi, Ken Kristensen and Dara Resnik have both signed up to contribute to the Disney+ series; Kristensen worked on The Punisher for both seasons, while Resnik was among those who worked on Daredevil's critically acclaimed third season. 

This doesn't confirm that Matt Murdock or Frank Castle will appear as Marvel Studios might just want writers familiar with telling street level superhero stories. Vigilantism isn't something we've seen explored in the MCU that much, but we definitely can't escape the feeling that Echo will indeed serve as something of a "Daredevil season 3.5" before he gets his own show or movie.

The most important thing will be making sure Maya isn't overshadowed in her own show, but if you're familiar with the comic books, then you'll know how crucial she was to Daredevil's ongoing war with Wilson Fisk.

Stay tuned for more as we have it.
