Marvel Reveals Release Dates For “Loki” Season 2 and “Echo”
The God of Mischief and the Native American assassin will be seeing you this fall on Disney+.
Marvel has revealed that the second season of Loki will premiere on October 6, and then a month and change later, the Hawkeye spinoff Echo will premiere on November 29. What’s more, Echo will be the first Marvel Studios show to release all its episodes at once.
Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige made the announcements during the Disney Upfront on Tuesday. Loki is the first Marvel Studios series on Disney+ to receive a second season, which will continue the story of Tom Hiddleston’s mercurial, time-hopping rogue and his adventures with his new pals, like Owen Wilson’s Mobius and Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie. Feige also confirmed that season two will boast newly minted Everything Everywhere All At Once Oscar winner Ke Huy Quan, fresh from his historic win for Best Supporting Actor. Rick and Morty writer Eric Martin returns to pen all the episodes for season two, with Moon Knight directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead helming the series.
As for Echo, the series is centered on Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), the deaf Native American assassin from Marvel’s 2021 Disney+ series Hawkeye. Feige was enthusiastic about the series, which hails from an “incredible team of indigenous writers, directors, and cast members.” Joining Cox are stars Zahn McClarnon (Reservation Dogs), Graham Greene (Dances With Wolves), Chaske Spencer (Wild Indian), Tantoo Cardinal (Killers of the Flower Moon), Docy Lighthing (Hey, Viktor!), and Devery Jacobs (Reservation Dogs). Also making appearances in the series are Vincent D’Onofrio, reprising his role as Hawkeye villain Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, and Charlie Cox, reprising his role as Matt Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil. Those two did battle on the Netflix series Daredevil and will be locking horns again when Daredevil: Born Again arrives on Disney+. Echo was helmed by Sydney Freeland (Reservation Dogs, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds) and Catriona McKenzie (The Walking Dead, Shining Vale).
Marvel also has the Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn-led Secret Invasion arriving on June 21, while Black Panther: Wakanda Forever spinoff Ironheart and the WandaVision spinoff Agatha: Coven of Chaos moving back to 2024 release dates.
