The Significance of the Ending of Marvel’s Hawkeye Episode 2

Who is echo

As we explained in this in-depth article on Echo’s origins, she made her Marvel Comics debut in a story starring Daredevil and Kingpin in 1999. Unable to hear since birth, the Indian woman got her name because she could perfectly imitate the movements of others (shades of Taskmaster). She eventually became part of a new Avengers lineup and has also been linked to Hawkeye, Moon Knight, and the classic Secret invasion Action – all of which join the MCU via Disney + shows.

Alaqua Cox as Echo in Marvel's Hawkeye

Meet Alaqua Cox

It’s clear that Echo could be headed for big things in the Marvel on-screen canon. When asked for clues as to how Echo’s story unfolds and paves the way for the character’s own series, Hawk Eye Executive producer Trinh Tran is of course prudent in classic Marvel fashion.

“We’re introducing your character here,” she says. “I can’t say much about the plot and its integration into the story, of course, but what I can say is that Alaqua is so impressive in what she brought into the character and on screen, and you can see how cool Maya is is here. She is a terrible enemy to our heroes. You have to find a way to deal with the situation that Maya brings up. It is exciting. I think Alaqua Cox is great and she did it. “

Cox himself is deaf in real life, has a prosthetic leg, and is a member of the Menominee Nation. Aside from the fact that their cast is truly representative of all of these communities (with members of the Deaf and Indian communities in particular praising the cast selections), Hawk Eye marks her first time ever on the screen.

At a press conference promoting the series, Marvel chief creative officer Kevin Feige stated that Cox came in as a “cold audition” and read several times for director Rhys Thomas. The latter said of the actor: “She just has an incredible determination. She had never performed before but seemed completely unimpressed when we got back and really got her through the doorbell. But somehow she went into this universe as if she should have always been there. “

And now you is there, and all indications are that Echo / Maya / Alaqua will become an important part of the MCU on the small screen and possibly beyond.
