ECHO Rumored To Be Akin To DAREDEVIL Season 4 With Most Of The Netflix Show's Cast Expected To Return
Echo is reportedly coming to Disney+, but following rumours that Charlie Cox's Man Without Fear will appear in the series, it's now said that much of Daredevil's supporting cast is also set to play a role.
Over the weekend, it was reported that Charlie Cox's Daredevil will have a role in the Echo series reportedly coming to Disney+. All these rumours are becoming a bit tiresome, especially as the Man Without Fear has also been slated to show up in Spider-Man: No Way Home and She-Hulk.
Now, @DanielRPK has clarified his previous claim about Echo to say that "this is still very much Echo's show," but that we're going to get what feels like a Daredevil season 4 "because we'll get to see all these characters from that show coming back and play big parts in it." He reiterates that "Echo is still the lead and it's her show," so it appears the title character won't be sidelined too much.
As expected, the scooper also confirms the obvious by noting that "the characters will be somewhat soft rebooted into the MCU but will still have a history with one another. So they'll look somewhat different with different backgrounds but still played by the same actors."
It's certainly an interesting decision to give Daredevil a significant role in Echo, but he does have a history with the character on the page. This would also help increase interest in the spinoff, as it could be a tough sell for regular fans even if the young hero makes a big impact in Hawkeye.
With Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson Fisk rumoured to appear in Hawkeye and Matt Murdock supposedly a lock for Spider-Man: No Way Home, we'll soon learn whether these seemingly endless claims have any real weight behind them. If all of this is leading to a Daredevil movie or TV show, then we certainly have no complaints, and these supporting roles could go a long way towards resetting the hero.
We'll keep you guys updated if and when more is revealed.
