There have been quite a few hints that Echo is going to start production soon. We learned some time ago that they would start production under the working title “Grasshopper” and their location scouts were quite busy back in March. Earlier this month, it was seemingly confirmed that Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio would join the project. Last year, it was hinted that the series would start production in January but it looks like they are already preparing to start production tomorrow.
Echo actress Alaqua Cox took to her Instagram account to share a story. In it, she reveals that she received some flowers as a celebration ahead of their production start. It’s uncertain if we’ll get any photos from the set as a way to celebrate the start, but while she doesn’t mention what project exactly, it’s safe to assume that it’s Marvel Studios’ next Disney+ series.
It’s great to see the project pick up steam finally, and it seems we can expect it to release in 2023 if it starts production now. To this day, it’s still really impressive to think that Hawkeye, which introduced viewers to the character and her connection to Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Kingpin, was her first role ever. Now, she’s left such an impressive performance that she’s getting her own spinoff moving forward. So, we’ll see what direction they’ll take, especially with the freedom they have with a character like Echo.
