The Marvel train doesn’t stop! According to Deadline, a Hawkeye spinoff featuring deaf character Echo is in the works at Disney Plus.

Echo’s alter ego is Maya Lopez! She is a deaf Native American superhero who possesses the unique ability to emulate any one’s fighting style. Over the years, she has appeared in the Daredevil, Moon Knight and the Avengers comics. It’s important to note Marvel has a Moon Knight series currently in development.

Etan Cohen and Emily Cohen will pen and co-executive produce the series. The show is still in the very early stages of development. The principal series, Hawkeye, will hit the streamer later this year.
