Maya Lopez, introduced in Hawkeye, will now have her own series.
You didn’t imagine that Marvel was going to make a spin-off on Maya Lopez, naughty secondary of Hawkeye ? Disney + is going all the way and this week confirms the official launch of production for its new series from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Echo will therefore be devoted to this hearing-impaired street fighter, ex-student of Kingpin, from the Native American community.
A first photo has been posted online and does not show much except the return of Alaqua Cox in the skin of Maya Lopez, with a new outfit.
