Following its premiere on January 9, Echo has received a critical rating of 73% on the popular review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, making it the second-worst-rated Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Disney+ TV show of all time. This information was obtained at the time of this writing. Although it has received a “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, only Secret Invasion, the first Phase Five series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has received a score that is lower than Echo in terms of 53%. Echo, on the other hand, has received a slightly higher score of 75% from audiences after they have watched the Disney+ title in its early stages.

Echo Had Early Praise Ahead of Release

Echo has received a great deal of praise from a variety of critics in the time leading up to the premiere of the series, and this positive reception has continued even after all five episodes of the Hawkeye spinoff were released at the same time. Kaiya Shunyata, a critic from, was quoted as saying, “Something here has clicked. Even though it is shorter than it should be, it is almost as if the heart that has been ripped out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers: Endgame has slowly seeped back into the bones of a series that is attempting to rebuild itself from the ground up. Additionally, the series has received a great deal of appreciation from other critics for its depiction of Native Americans and its intense action. Nevertheless, there are many who have voiced their disapproval of Echo’s glacial development and lack of character depth. Sophie Butcher, who writes for Empire Magazine, has described the show as “inconsistently paced” and “lacking in character development.”

Echo is the first show to be produced under the Marvel Spotlight label. It places an emphasis on “grounded, character-driven” narratives in both its series and films, departing from the high-budget format utilized by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the program, which stars Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez/Echo and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, Maya travels back to her homeland in Oklahoma in order to reconnect with her family and learn more about her native roots. In spite of this, Kingpin is able to track down her old Tracksuit Mafia henchwoman after their intense encounter at the conclusion of Hawkeye. This brings about the formation of an uncomfortable partnership between the two individuals in order to defeat a mutual adversary.

Maya is referred to as the “villain” of the Echo series, despite the fact that she is the main protagonist. This is due to the fact that she has a difficult time moving past the evil activities she committed while she was affiliated with Kingpin. A recent teaser for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series, Daredevil: Born Again, hinted at a significant confrontation between Daredevil and Echo, which was met with a range of reactions from viewers. The show also included tie-ins to the upcoming series. It is anticipated that Maya will have a role in Born Again, and Echo will have clear connections to the future drama.

Echo is the first show in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to ever receive a TV-MA rating, which signifies a new direction for the MCU. It was Sydney Freeland who was in charge of directing the show, which was conceived by Marion Dayre.

Through Disney+, you can now watch all of the episodes of Echo that have been released.
