Daredevil and The Kingpin are set to reunite in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series, Echo, with Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio reprising their roles.
While the pair starred in the roles during the three seasons of Netflix’s Daredevil series, it has been a source of heavy fan speculation as to when and where these characters will be used, as Netflix gave up the Marvel venture years ago now and the series recently moved platforms to Disney+.
Both actors made surprise reprisals of these roles in Marvel projects in 2021. Cox briefly appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Matt Murdock providing legal advice to Peter Parker, Aunt May, and Happy while D’Onofrio had a reoccurring role as the main protagonist in the Hawkeye series.
Echo follows Maya Lopez/Echo, a Deaf Native American superhero who made her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in last year’s Hawkeye series. Alaqua Cox plays the titular character of the series, which is her breakout role. The series description follows:
“The origin story of Echo revisits Maya Lopez, whose ruthless behavior in New York City catches up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots and embrace the meaning of family and community if she ever hopes to move forward.”
