Report: Marvel’s Kevin Feige deemed Echo “unreleasable” ahead of reshoots.

Accordingly The hot microphone Podcast’s Jeff Sneider, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige deemed the upcoming Disney+ series Echo “unreleasable.”

On the podcast, Sneider said he heard the series was “plagued with problems” during production, which he described as “chaos.” After eight episodes were filmed, Marvel reportedly discussed cutting the series down to four or six episodes, but decided to reshoot the series. Eventually, Sneider noted that “Kevin wasn’t happy with that.”

What did Kevin Feige think of Echo?

“I’ve heard that the series has been plagued with problems throughout production,” Sneider said. “I heard it was a mess and the show went so bad they basically had to reshoot the whole thing. I’m told they originally shot eight episodes and (Kevin Feige) thought it was unreleaseable so they talked about cutting it down to four episodes or six in the post. But then the movie was remade so my source didn’t really know how many episodes they ended up with. But yeah, apparently it had to be realigned from top to bottom and Kevin wasn’t happy with that.”


Echo will see the return of Alaqua Cox, reprising her role as Maya Lopez after debuting in Hawkeye last year, where it was revealed Maya had a long history with Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin. D’Onofrio is joined by Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Zahn McClarnon (Fargo), Devery Jacobs (Reservation Dogs), Cody Lightning, Chaske Spencer, Tantoo Cardinal and Graham Greene.

In the Marvel Comics, Echo – the adopted daughter of the Kingpin – is a deaf Native American who can perfectly mimic other people’s movements while also being a highly skilled martial artist and acrobat.

Marion Dayre is the lead writer on the Hawkeye spin-off. Also in the Writer’s Room are Bobby Wilson, Rebecca Roanhorse, Shoshannah Stern, Josh Feldman, Kaitlyn Jeffers, Steven Paul Judd, Jason Gavin, Ken Kristensen, Dara Resnik and Jessica Mecklenburg.
