Echo: Trailer Talk
The next entry in Marvel Studios’ ever-growing schedule of shows is simply called ‘Echo’ and comes to Disney+ in January.
‘Echo’ stars Alaqua Cox (Marvel’s Hawkeye) as the deaf titular character as she exacts revenge over those who wronged her.
While her first appearance was in ‘Hawkeye’, Echo is a character I am unfamiliar with. But the trailer has intrigued me despite going through a fatigue of the superhero genre. With the number of shows and films that Marvel release now, all with the same mediocre quality, ‘Echo’ looks like a refreshing take on the genre.
The trailer does a great job at not giving away too many plot details but shows fans that this will be a departure from the family friendly media that it’s used to releasing. Just like last year’s special ‘Werewolf by Night’, Marvel have once again taken a risk by making this series more mature and the fight sequences more violent and bloody. ‘Echo’ feels like it’s not trying to push a family friendly influence into a character that might not be family friendly and it’s a decision that I am thankful for.
While I am not familiar with the character, ‘Echo’ is the first Marvel show in a long time to catch my attention. It looks like Marvel are, once again, trying to release more mature shows which is something that I am glad about; not all superheroes are family friendly. Plus, with the titular character being deaf, I’m very curious to know what the sound design will be like. If it’s anything like it is in the trailers, then this will be a very interesting show.
