The upcoming Hawkeye series may already be getting a spin-off series, according to Variety. Echo, a deaf and Native American character that will be played by Alaqua Cox in Hawkeye, is said to be the focus of this spin-off. 

In the comics, Echo works closely with Daredevil and other Marvel characters, and was the first to go by the name Ronin, a mantle that Hawkeye took on in Avengers: Endgame after the death of his family.

Hawkeye is slated to release in the fall of 2021, and stars Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga, Tony Dalton, and Alaqua Cox. Steinfeld will play Kate Bishop, a young archer who becomes an apprentice to Renner’s Hawkeye.

Marvel fans have plenty of other projects to look forward to. There are several shows in active development for Disney+, including Loki (releasing this June), Ms. Marvel, What If?, Moon Knight, and She Hulk. These are in addition to The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which is currently airing weekly on the streaming service.
