Release dates for the popular Disney+ series “Loki” and the new Marvel series “Echo” have been announced.
According to Variety, Marvel has set not only the premiere date for the popular Disney+ show “Loki,” but also the new show “Echo.”
Kevin Feige made the announcement during Disney Upfront on Tuesday.
For the first time ever for a Marvel series, all episodes of “Echo” will be released at once on November 29, 2023.
Season 2 of “Loki” premieres October 6, 2023 on Disney+.
Marvel’s “Echo” starring Alaqua Cox began production in Atlanta last summer.
Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio will be returning as Daredevil and Kingpin, respectively.
“Echo” will follow Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, who first appeared in “Hawkeye.” In her spinoff series, she will leave New York City for her hometown, where she reconnects with her roots and ends up at the center of a new crisis.
D’Onofrio appeared as Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, a father figure to Maya, during the series. SPOILER ALERT: She seemed to kill him at the end of the show, but Kingpin could turn out to still be alive or appear in flashbacks during “Echo.”
Cox portrayed Matt Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil, in “Daredevil,” a Netflix original series, from 2015 to 2018. He reprised the role in “The Defenders” in 2017 and then “Spider-Man: No Way Home” last year.
“Loki” is a TV series based on the popular Marvel character, created for the Disney + streaming platform. It debuted on June 9, 2021, and consisted of six episodes. It was renewed for a second season that will debut on October 6, 2023.
Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki for the series, which takes place after the events of “Avengers: End Game.” Spoiler alert: after Loki steals the Tesseract in “Avengers: End Game,” an alternate version (or variant) of Loki is brought to the Time Variance Authority (TVA). It is an organization that exists outside of time and space as we know it, and they monitor the timeline. Loki, the God of mischief, really brings meaning to his name in this thriller.
A Disney+ promotional video showed a peek at season 2, while leaked set photos revealed a new costume for Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie. In addition to the returning Hiddleston, Di Martino, Owen Wilson (Mobius), and Wunmi Mosaku (Hunter B-15), Ke Huy Quan (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”) will be joining the cast.
Exclusive footage was shown at the D23 Expo last year but is unavailable online. According to Empire Magazine, the footage featured Loki back at the TVA and being pulled through time as he tries to warn everyone about Kang. Mobius and Hunter B-15 still don’t recognize him. It will connect to Marvel’s ongoing multiverse saga.
