‘Echo’ Star Alaqua Cox Talks Kingpin’s Rise to Power in ‘Daredevil: Born Again’

Since before cameras first rolled on Daredevil: Born Again, rumors of Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk becoming Mayor of New York City were fairly widespread. Photos from the set of the streaming series confirmed the plot point which was then teased in the final episode of Echo, which kicked off the live-action portion of Marvel Studios’ 2024 slate.

It’s hard to imagine how someone with a criminal record like Fisk’s might end up in office. It’s also hard to imagine how characters like Maya Lopez would allow the Kingpin to be in a position of political power without a fight. Screen Rant’s Joe Deckelmeier asked Echo star Alaqua Cox about that very scenario in a recent interview.

No. I don’t think that she would like that idea,”said Cox when asked if her character could stand by while Fisk became Mayor. “I think it’s a terrible idea. He’s such a dirty crook. He’s got a lot of things going on. I don’t think him running for a position of political power would be a good idea.”

While the MCU future of Cox‘s Maya Lopez remains pretty undefined at the moment, there’s been speculation that the character will ultimately appear Daredevil: Born Again despite that show’s creative retooling. In fact, Cox was spotted in New York while the series was filming though she wasn’t seen on set. Whatever the case, Cox’s beliefs about Kingpin’s power play are clear and it’s hard to imagine her letting him off the hook.
