Variety has reported that a spin-off series based on the Marvel Character “Echo“ is in the works for Disney Plus. For those who are not familiar with the character, Echo is a deaf Native American character that made her debut in Daredevil #9, which was released in December 1999. The character later went under the name “Ronin” in The New Avengers #11, which was released in November 2005. The character was created by David Mack and Joe Quesada. According to Variety, the character will be portrayed by Alaqua Cox, who will apparently make her debut in the upcoming “Hawkeye” Series.
