Matt Murdock’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin confirmed for MCU’s Echo series?

April 7th, 2022 by Marc Comments

You may recall last year we reported that Daredevil star Charlie Cox was set to reprise the role in the upcoming Disney+ series Echo (here), well, it seems that that is indeed happening and he will be joined by his onscreen nemesis, Kingpin, played by Vincent D’Onfrio.

Echo, played by Alaqua Cox, is actually called Maya Lopez and is deaf with the ability to mimic music and fighting styles (hence, Echo) whose father was murdered by Kingpin who then took the young girl under his wing. She and Daredevil fought in the comics after Kingpin told her it was the hero that killed her father, but there’s much, much more to their story than just that and it seems the series Echo may be setting out to explore just that.

Based on this, it makes sense, with Daredevil and Kingpin having recently rejoined the MCU from their previous Netflix shows in Spider-man: No Way Home and Hawkeye respectively, as both characters have big connections to Echo.

Having the two back against each other in the MCU is an exciting prospect.

This confirmation comes via the resume of costume designer Stacy Caballero who is working on the show and has previously worked on other MCU projects such as Thor: Ragnarok and the Black Panther sequel:

It also reveals that Grey’s Anatomy and Nancy Drew director Sydney Freeland will be working on the series.

This is exciting news as we’ve been waiting a long time to see Daredevil and Kingpin come face-to-face again after the Daredevil series on Netflix, although we imagine the MCU meeting of the two will be much more family-friendly; whatever may come, we’ll be watching.

On top of this, Production Weekly has a Daredevil Reboot listed as an upcoming Marvel project, so it looks like we’re going to be seeing these two (maybe three) a lot in the near future.

Let us know your thoughts, guys.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
