Echo is the first project revealed by Marvel Studios at the recent Disney+ Day event, and is also the character that will appear in the upcoming Hawkeye series. This film revolves around Maya Lopez/Echo, played by Alaqua Cox, a deaf superhero with many connections to the storylines of Daredevil.
In the original, Maya trained under Wilson Fisk/Kingpin to become a professional assassin after her father’s death. It was Wilson who instilled in Maya’s mind that Daredevil was the one who harmed her father, causing her to hold a grudge and seek revenge on the blind lawyer. If Marvel Studios exploits the original, most likely they will bring both Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin into the MCU in the near future.

What If…? season 2
The multiverse will be the main theme in the next phases of the MCU, and What If…? is the perfect name to bring up stories from other universes, with characters that are both familiar and new at the same time.

This is also an opportunity for Marvel Studios to continue to exploit the idea of the zombie version of Thanos that they teased at the end of this episode.
Spider-Man: Freshman Year
Spider-Man: Freshman Year was one of the names that made fans most excited at the recent event, even though this is an animated series, not a live-action. The Spidey in this movie is the version that has appeared in the MCU over the years, played by Tom Holland.
