Marvel Studios has dropped a new trailer for its first ever TV-MA rated series, Echo, and this latest look at the Hawkeye spin-off does not skimp on the bloody violence...

Marvel Studios has announced that all five episodes of Echo will now stream on Disney+ and Hulu a day early on January 09, 2024, and we also have an action-packed - and very violent - new teaser.

In this "viewer discretion advised" promo, Marvel really hammers home the fact that the Hawkeye spin-off will be its first TV-MA rated series, as Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) takes down some bad guys in various brutal ways, and the blood flows freely.

We also get another look at Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio) wearing the scars from his last encounter with his "niece," and a quick glimpse of Daredevil (Charlie Cox) back in his red costume.

Check out the trailer at the link below.

Echo will also be the first project under a new banner known as Marvel Spotlight, which takes its name from an anthology comic book series that debuted back in 1971 and was the origin of beloved Marvel characters like Ghost Rider and Spider-Woman.

“Marvel Spotlight gives us a platform to bring more grounded, character-driven stories to the screen, and in the case of Echo, focusing on street-level stakes over larger MCU continuity," said Head of Streaming Brad Winderbaum. "Just like comics fans didn’t need to read Avengers or Fantastic Four to enjoy a Ghost Rider Spotlight comic, our audience doesn’t need to have seen other Marvel series to understand what’s happening in Maya’s story.”

"Marvel Studios presents Echo in which Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) struggles to reconnect with her Native American roots while balancing aspirations tied to a life of crime as successor to the brutal legacy of Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio) aka Kingpin," reads the most recent synopsis. "In the first episode, we are introduced to Maya Lopez and her struggles."

In addition to Cox, D'Onofrio and Cox (Charlie), the show will also star Chaske Spencer as Henry, Tantoo Cardinal as Chula, Graham Greene as Skully, Cody Lightning as Cousin Biscuits, Devery Jacobs as Bonnie, and Zahn McClarnon as William Lopez.

The origin story of Echo revisits Maya Lopez (Cox), whose ruthless behaviour in New York City catches up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots and embrace the meaning of family and community if she ever hopes to move forward.

They may be cookin with this. That got me hype.

@GhostDog - I feel like Marvel Studios thrives when they change tones. We as fans are tired of the comedy and zero stakes CGI warfare. We want some grounded stories with more hand to hand combat and street level heroes.
Itwasme - 12/17/2023, 12:09 AM
@SonOfAGif - technically doesn't this have really low stakes? I mean The Marvels had really high stakes and tbh I often find really high stakes not as interesting. Every now and then they work, but low stakes for me is often better.

I’m hyped. Said this before but I rewatched Hawkeye a few weeks ago and it got me so excited for this. Hoping for good things.
Vigor - 12/16/2023, 11:12 PM
I like how everyone not interested in this before is like, "oh yeah violence. Lets check this out"
Simple creatures

But yeah January is looking nice

@Vigor -

Smells like teen spirit.

DocSpock - 12/16/2023, 11:14 PM

I liked Hawkeye a lot. I loved her in Hawkeye. The promos look brutally great. And Ms. Cox is giving me scary disturbing chub.

BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@DocSpock - cut. print. pathetic.
DocSpock - 12/17/2023, 12:17 AM
@OriginalGusto1 -

I get that a lot too.

OriginalGusto1 - 12/17/2023, 12:21 AM
@DocSpock - I usually get cut, print...then punched in the nose.
OriginalGusto1 - 12/17/2023, 12:21 AM
Thank God I know karate...
DocSpock - 12/17/2023, 12:22 AM
@OriginalGusto1 -

This Bud's for you. Fully loaded of course.

OriginalGusto1 - 12/17/2023, 12:22 AM
[frick], I don't know karate...
OriginalGusto1 - 12/17/2023, 12:22 AM
You're driving, dr.
OriginalGusto1 - 12/17/2023, 12:23 AM
I can't [frick]ing figure out shoelaces.
OriginalGusto1 - 12/17/2023, 12:24 AM
Or, feel my forehead.
Gmoney84 - 12/16/2023, 11:14 PM
This looks like what it should look like. I’m very pumped for this.
bobevanz - 12/16/2023, 11:16 PM
All Marvel needed was graphic violence to fix their problems, easy peasy right? Lol
MochaKing - 12/17/2023, 1:52 PM
@bobevanz - Also less haters like you...
DarkeyeZ - 12/17/2023, 7:59 PM
@MochaKing - without hating, what other purpose would he serve? Haters are gonna hate, mainly, because they have to as they have absolutely nothing else to do with their lives. The only thing they have to add to society, is to be an example of what can happen when someone isn't shown enough love in life.
so cheers to the haters...keep on hating.
StSteven - 12/16/2023, 11:18 PM
Seems like they're really leaning into the violence and brutality of this. Kinda reads to me like "Hey all you folks who were fans of the Netflix Marvel shows! Hey look, we can do it too! You like the tone and brutality of the DD show? We got that for ya right here. Come check this out. And if you like this, you're going to LOVE what we're cooking up for "DD:BA"!".

Which I'm totally down with. I think that Marvel's smart enough to realize that that Netflix Marvel shows' audience is hungry for more of that (and there's a sizable number of them), so why not give it to them? Either way, I say "Giddy up!"
Waifuslayer - 12/16/2023, 11:19 PM
That was tame as hell and the fight choreography looks horrible. Pass.
vectorsigma - 12/17/2023, 12:05 AM
@Waifuslayer - seeing some sanity on these comments is always welcome

Everything that Marvel has in store until cap 4, thubderbolts and all the upcoming series are not giving any vibes of being good. I am including DP3 on that
AvalonX - 12/17/2023, 12:23 AM
@Waifuslayer - Finally, someone else has eyes. She barely moves. They studio was pissed at her as she gained a lot of weight between shows. Thats why shes covered head to toe. She looks like she belongs in a biker gang compared to her comic counterpart.
EskimoJ - 12/17/2023, 4:22 AM
@AvalonX - ... Are you referring to when she was pregnant?
Waifuslayer - 12/17/2023, 10:52 AM
@AvalonX - I take it I wasn't the only one who noticed the digital touch ups to make it look like the punches hit harder 😅 it was like watching a Shaw Bros Kung fu flick but without the charm.
AvalonX - 12/17/2023, 1:48 PM
@EskimoJ - Production wrapped August 2022. She just had the kid so no, I dont thing she was pregnant during filming.
AvalonX - 12/17/2023, 1:49 PM
@Waifuslayer - You weren't but half this board is blind and looks at this stuff through true believer glasses instead of admitting its garbage.

Then when it does turn out to be garbage, they blame other people instead of the people who made it.
DarkeyeZ - 12/17/2023, 8:01 PM
@AvalonX - lol, thinking people who do not share the same opinion as you do not have eyes is one of the most single minded comments I've read online.
OmegaDaGrodd - 12/16/2023, 11:21 PM
15 years in and they still have different arrows in quiver. Utterly ridiculous in the best way possible
ModHaterSLADE - 12/16/2023, 11:22 PM
Looks promising. Gives me Daredevil meets Banshee vibes.
comicfan100 - 12/16/2023, 11:23 PM
That looks dope! I hope her powers don't take too much away from the gritty grounded tone they got here.
AvalonX - 12/16/2023, 11:29 PM
This still looks terrible. The violence is just marketing. They are dumping this on both D+ and Hulu. If this was good, they wouldn't be doing that. Im sure Kingpin will be good but he wont be in this as much as the trailers are showing.
Vigor - 12/16/2023, 11:35 PM
@AvalonX - seeing a pattern with you of bad takes. "Dumping" it on both platforms isn't a bad thing. They're merging the platforms, rightfully so. It allows for greater reach of shows. It's a business decision. This is called smart moves
AvalonX - 12/16/2023, 11:42 PM
@Vigor - How is it a bad take? Because you dont agree with it? This series was in production hell with a ton of reshoots. Its the shortest episode count. They show some violence and its good now? If course they are going to try and market it towards the Netflix fans. Does it change the fact that the protangonist is nothing like her counterpart besides being Native American and deaf? That they gave her magical bullshit powers instead of having the fighting mimic ability like Task Master? And historically, did they dump Andor and Ms. Marvel on Hulu and ABC because they were merging or because no one was watching. They arent putting it on both because they are merging. Its a numbers games to investors to boost views. They are under seige right now from Peltz. They cant have another underperforming series. They can show ads on Hulu too to recoup the loss from this show. Is that a bad take?
