Disney+ recently announced the release date of its next Marvel series Echo and that all episodes of that series will be released at the same time. This news came after the project was going through some pretty heavy production issues.
There was a moment where I felt that the series might actually be cancelled. Of course that’s not the case, but according to a new report, the production was a big mess and Kevin Feige thought the series was “uneditable” for some time. But they managed to salvage what they had with shooting.
On the latest episode of The Hot Mic Podcast, entertainment scooper Jeff Sneider says sources close to him said the series was “plagued with problems” during its production, and Feige wasn’t happy about it and they had to pretty much take it all back! Here’s what Sneider had to say:
“I have heard that the show has been plagued with problems during production. I heard it was a disaster and that the show was so bad they basically had to reshoot the whole thing. I was told they originally filmed 8 episodes and [Kevin Feige] they thought it was inedible so they talked about cutting it down to 4 episodes or 6 in post. But then they ended up reshooting it, so my source didn’t actually know how many episodes they ended up with. But yeah, apparently he needed a top-down rejigger, and that Kevin wasn’t happy about it.
Sounds like it must have been a nightmare situation for Feige to deal with! While I’m happy to have overcome the madness, I guess Marvel isn’t confident in the series, which is what they’re downloading all the episodes to Disney+ at once. I was actually looking forward to this series, but we’ll just have to wait and see how the project turns out in the end.
In the series, “Echo’s origin story revisits Maya Lopez, whose unforgiving behavior in New York City catches up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots, and embrace the meaning of family and community if he always hopes to go on”.
Echo was developed by Ethan Cohen AND Emilia Cohen, who are writers and executive producers on the show. The series is the protagonist Alaqua Cox, Charlie Cox, Vincent D’OnofrioZahn McClarnon, Chaske Spencer, Tantoo Cardinal, Cody Lightning, Devery JacobsAND Graham Green.
