We’re still months away from the premiere of Marvel’s Hawkeye series on Disney+. However, the upcoming series seems to be leading to a spin-off show for another Marvel superhero.

Alaqua Cox will be making her debut as the character Echo on Hawkeye. Variety says sources are reporting that Disney+ is planning a future series for Echo’s character.

The civilian name of the new Marvel character is Maya Lopez. Echo is a Native American who was born deaf, but also has photographic reflexes akin to the skill used by Marvel Comics villain Taskmaster. Her ability to perfectly copy another person’s movements or fighting style makes her a formidable opponent in battle. She has a Marvel Comics history with both Clint Barton’s character and the Avengers.

Work in the series is currently in the earliest stages of development. Both Etan Cohen and Emily Cohen reportedly attached to write and produce.
