HAWKEYE Set Videos And Photo Provide A First Look At Alaqua Cox As Echo

Earlier today, the full cast for the currently shooting Hawkeye Disney+ series was announced, and we now have our first look at newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, aka Echo, thanks to a new set video...

Following today's announcement that several established Marvel Comics characters will be joining Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) in the Disney+ Hawkeye series, some new set footage gives us a first glimpse of Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, aka Echo.

The video doesn't reveal much (Cox's face is covered with a mask so it's difficult to tell if she has the character's signature white hand-print), but we do see the up-and-coming actress practicing sign language with another actor between takes.

You can check out another vid and a photo over at Murphy's Multiverse.

Like her character, Cox is deaf and Native American. Though this will be her first major role, Echo is expected to be a major part of the show. No details about how she'll factor into the plot have been revealed, but there's a chance she may start out as an adversary of Clint Barton's given their shared association with the Ronin mantle in the comics.

Created by David Mack and Joe Quesada in the late '90s, Echo was first introduced as a Daredevil villain before switching allegiances and reinventing herself as a hero. She resurfaced in 2005 and took up the mantle of Ronin for Brian Michael Bendis' New Avengers run, before going on to befriend and work alongside the likes of Wolverine and Moon Knight.

Hawkeye will also feature Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, and Zahn McClarnon. It's been confirmed that Florence Pugh will return as her Black Widow character, Yelena Belova.
