New Set Photo Reveals Hawkeye’s New Super Suit and a First Look at Echo. Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye has finished wrapping and fans have been waiting to see a first look at the new costumes and characters coming to the series. Though we already knew Hailee Steinfeld was joining the cast as Kate Bishop, another character has been confirmed for the series!
Alaqua Cox will be making her debut as the character Echo on Hawkeye. Variety claims sources are reporting that Disney+ is planning a future series for Echo as a lead character. The civilian name of the new Marvel character is Maya Lopez.
A translation of the post reads: “New backstage photo of “Hawkeye” shows the costumes of Echo and Clint Barton.”
Maya Lopez, aka “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.
“Hawkeye, which debuts on Disney+ in late 2021, stars Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, who teams up with another well-known archer from the Marvel comics, Kate Bishop, played by Hailee Steinfeld. The cast also includes Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d’Arcy James and newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez. Hawkeye is helmed by Rhys Thomas and directing duo Bert and Bertie.”
