Marvel TV Head Says ‘Echo’ Sets New Direction for Brand


Brad Winderbaum, the Marvel Studio‘s head of streaming, television and animation says upcoming series Echo sets new direction for MCU and Disney+.

Marvel Studios is set to venture into a darker and more mature realm with Echo. The announcement comes as the studio prepares to redefine its television business and expand its offerings in a way that fans have never seen before. During a press conference, Marvel TV head Winderbaum says the series will explore grittier side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

“It’s a little on the grittier side for Marvel, and shows the breadth of what Marvel is capable of. It is sort of a new direction for the brand, especially for Disney+.”

Echo is already making waves with its unveiling of a moody and violent trailer, showcasing an edgier side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Notably, this series is set to receive a TV-MA rating, making it Marvel Studios’ first production to delve into mature content.

At the heart of Echo is Alaqua Cox, reprising her role as Maya Lopez, a deaf superhero with the uncanny ability to mimic the skills of others. The series promises to delve into Echo’s complex character and provide a deeper understanding of her origins, making it a compelling addition to the MCU.

Marvel’s latest leap into the darker side of storytelling also extends to Daredevil: Born Again. The series reunites the charismatic Charlie Cox and the formidable Vincent D’Onofrio (Kingpin).
