In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, a threatening face appears in the trailer covered in red light. This appears to be Alaqua Cox’s character Maya Lopez, also known as Echo in the Marvel comics. The red glow around her face in the trailer matches the character’s hue associated with her Phoenix Force abilities. First appearing in “Daredevil” Vol. 2 #9, Echo is a deaf Native American from the Cheyenne Nation. She has an arsenal of abilities, including photogenic reflexes, acrobatics, and is a master of martial arts.
Something important to know here is that Echo has ties to notorious Daredevil villain, Kingpin — aka Wilson Fisk. Her father once worked for the mobster, who Vincent D’Onofrio plays in the “Daredevil” Netflix series. For some time, rumors suggested the actor would be reprising his role as the mob leader (via MovieWeb), and without a true villain present in the trailer, it looks like this might prove true.
Echo also appears in the “Moon Knight” and “Secret Invasion” comic book storylines, meaning it’s also possible the character could appear in those Disney+ series as well.
