9 Stars of Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye Spin-Off
Marvel Studios' official US copyright listing for the upcoming Hawkeye spin-off series Echo confirmed nine main actors and the characters they will play in the MCU, via Reddit.
1.) Alaqua Cox - Maya Lopez
Leading the way in Echo will be Alaqua Cox’s titular heroine, who moves into her second MCU appearance after first making her debut as a supporting character in 2021’s Hawkeye.
Marvel Studios’ first deaf heroine will go back to her roots in this series, reuniting with her family and finding out the true responsibility that comes with being a hero.
2.) Vincent D’Onofrio - Wilson Fisk/Kingpin
3.) Chaske Spencer - Henry
Chaske Spencer will play a brand-new MCU character named Henry, moving into the Marvel Studios family after his work in the Twilight movies and on Blindspot.
4.) Tantoo Cardinal - Chula
Native American star Tantoo Cardinal will embody a new role as Chula after starring in major Hollywood movies and shows such as Wind River, Dances With Wolves, and Slumptown.
5.) Graham Greene - Skully
As reported exclusively by The Direct, Native American icon Graham Greene will join the MCU as a character named Skully, adding to his own impressive legacy in the industry.
6.) Cody Lightning - Cousin Biscuits
Cousin Biscuits is another character getting his introduction in Echo as he’s played by Canadian star Cody Lightning, with credits such as Hey, Viktor!, Brick, and Four Sheets to the Wind on his resume.
7.) Charlie Cox - Matt Murdock/Daredevil
While Cox‘s specific role in the plot is still a mystery, it will set up his place in the MCU even further before he takes the leading role in Daredevil: Born Again.
8.) Devery Jacobs - Bonnie
Confirmed after an announcement in April 2022, Devery Jacobs will join the series as a character named Bonnie, who could potentially be one of Maya Lopez’s friends from her hometown.
Along with Reservation Dogs, Jacobs is best known for her role as Sam Blackcrow in all three seasons of American Gods.
9.) Zahn McClarnon - William Lopez
In May 2022, a report revealed that Zahn McClarnon would make his return to the MCU by playing William Lopez, Maya‘s father, for a second time after first playing the role in Episode 3 of Hawkeye.
The character was only utilized in flashback scenes the first time around since he was killed off, which will likely be the same as he makes his comeback for Echo.
Echo will debut on Disney+ sometime in January 2024.
