Fans of Daredevil, brace yourselves! Marvel Disney+ has rolled out its latest offering, Echo, to widespread acclaim. The first two episodes have critics raving about the series’ fight sequences, gritty narrative, and a standout performance by Alaqua Cox in the lead role.

Critics are hailing the series as more “mature” compared to Marvel’s prior television installments on Disney+. With an emphasis on the refreshing ‘Spotlight’ brand, it promises lower stakes enveloped in raw storytelling.

Echo: A Leap Toward Darker Storytelling

‘What’s on Disney Plus’ favorably likened Kingpin and the action sequences to an upgrade in maturity level from previous Marvel narratives.

“More mature than other #disneyplus #marvel shows, great fight scene. Loved Kingpin. Fab Action. Feels more like ‘TV’. Lower stakes, perfect for the new Spotlight brand. Can’t wait to see the other episodes.”

Indeed, Metro’s Sabrina Barr stands in awe of Cox’s central performance, expressing an eagerness for upcoming episodes.

“I was so excited to watch Alaqua Cox back in action after her epic entrance in Hawkeye… and after seeing the first two episodes, I can’t wait for more.”

While some plot pacing and creative elements have drawn critique, the consensus is clear – Echo is going to satiate fans of The Man Without Fear.

“Personally I didn’t enjoy all parts, the show is definitely brutal, dark, has calm moments with a strong focus on Maya. Also, Daredevil fans will no doubt like what they did in the show.”

Digital Fix’s Tom Percival also expressed his views drawing comparisons to Daredevil and offered some critique amidst his awe of Alaqua Cox’s captivating performance.

“Saw the first two episodes of #echo tonight and have a lot of thoughts. I think fans of Netflix’s Daredevil are going to love it. It’s like Marvel remembered it can be violent and dark. Alaqua Cox is amazing! Although I don’t love all the creative decisions.”

Looking Forward to the Release of Echo

The series is set to premiere in January 2024 on Disney+. Echo is a must-watch for its brutal, yet captivating fight scenes and Alaqua Cox’s persuasive performance in the lead role.

“Enjoyed the first two episodes of #ECHO which had an incredible (and violent) fight scene I want to watch again and again. The sound design is [fire]. The brilliant Alaqua Cox continually draws me in, but I found the storytelling and pacing shaky. Excited to see the rest!”

Propelling Marvel onto a new, grittier trajectory, Echo stands as an enticing fix for any MCU enthusiast.

“If the world-ending stakes of the MCU have you longing for something more grounded #Echo is the gritty tonic. Two episodes seen and it’s a hard-hitting action thriller with a great sense of Native American culture.”
