Disney+ and Hulu drop first trailer for Marvel’s Echo

Among the upcoming Marvel Studios original series, Echo has been one of the question marks because its leading character, Maya Lopez, is not a headlining heroine in Marvel’s comics. However, the first trailer for Echo has been released by Disney+ and Hulu (which will both stream the series), and the first footage goes a long way towards winning us over by heavily leaning into the show’s TV-MA rating. Especially when Maya’s former guardian, Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), brutally beats a man as Maya looks on.

D’Onofrio is everywhere in this trailer, which furthers the show’s connection to Daredevil. Charlie Cox will also reprise his role as Matt Murdock/Daredevil in this series ahead of the upcoming revival show, Daredevil: Born Again. While Cox doesn’t appear in the trailer, the footage reveals that Fisk survived his violent encounter with Maya (Alaqua Cox) at the end of Hawkeye when she shot him and left him for dead. But she apparently blinded Fisk in one eye.

Maya followed Fisk’s lead and she was formerly a leader in his criminal organization. She only turned on Fisk after discovering that he was personally responsible for the death of her father, William Lopez (Zahn McClarnon). When Echo picks up, Maya has returned to her hometown in Oklahoma in an attempt to get away from her past.

Chaske Spencer co-stars as Henry, with Tantoo Cardinal as Chula, Graham Greene as Skully, Cody Lightning as Cousin Biscuits, and Devery Jacobs as Bonnie.

All episodes of Echo will premiere on Disney+ and Hulu on January 10, 2024. But it should be noted that Echo will only be on Hulu until April 9.

A new era begins in first Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes trailer
Noa and his bird friend in Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.

In 2011, Rise of the Planet of the Apes started a new chapter in the franchise by rebooting the film series and focusing on the story of the legendary ape leader Caesar. In 2017, War for the Planet of the Apes brought Caesar's story to a conclusion, but the reboot timeline lives on in next summer's Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes. Generations have passed since the time of Caesar, and while the new movies haven't caught up with the time frame of the original movies yet, the first teaser trailer for Kingdom reveals that humanity is looking more and more like the savages they were in the first Planet of the Apes.

Lena Headey heads to space in Beacon 23’s first trailer
A woman looks at something in Beacon 23.

In genre TV, few have the experience of actress Lena Headey. In addition to her eight seasons on Game of Thrones as Cersei Lannister, Headey also starred as Sarah Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and she lent her voice to Evil-Lyn in Netflix's Masters of the Universe: Revelation. Now, Headey is heading back to TV next month with Beacon 23, a new original sci-fi series on MGM+. And if the new trailer is any indication, Headey's new character is a bit morally ambiguous.

Disney+ and Hulu set Hallowstream and Huluween 2023 schedules
The cast of Disney's Haunted Mansion.

Technically, Halloween arrives at the end of October. But Disney+ and Hulu aren't waiting around to start rolling out the Halloween programing. For the sixth year in a row, Hulu will launch its Huluween slate of programming. Huluween will kick off tomorrow, September 15, with the Hulu premiere of Marvel's Werewolf by Night. The Boogeyman, a Stephen King adaptation that was originally slated as a Hulu original, will finally arrive at its intended destination on October 6. Stephen King's Rose Red is also on the schedule, alongside a number of Hulu originals and classic shows. There's even a four-episode event for American Horror Stories.

Disney+ is holding off a little longer for the launch of its fourth annual Hallowstream. This year's event begins on October 4 with the Disney+ premiere of Haunted Mansion and continues on October 13 with a new Goosebumps series that will also stream on Hulu. On October 20, Werewolf by Night will be getting a rerelease in color for the first time. However, most of the programming that Disney+ listed for October 31 are things that the streamer already has, like The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Collection.
