11/04 - ECHO Screening Event


To celebrate Choctaw Day, a special screening of the first two episodes of Marvel Studios’ “Echo”—plus a Q&A with director Sydney Freeland—took place this evening at The District at Choctaw Casinos & Resorts in Durant, OK. The Choctaw Cultural Center, which honors and preserves the Choctaw people’s journey, culture and history, kicked off Native American month today with one of the nation’s largest powwows.

The audience members in Oklahoma were also the first to see the new Marvel Spotlight banner, with a musical fanfare composed by frequent Marvel collaborator Michael Giacchino. Marvel Spotlight is rooted in Marvel Comics’ 85-year publishing history: Spotlight was an anthology comic book series first introduced in 1971 and was the origin of beloved Marvel characters like Ghost Rider and Spider-Woman.

Echo will be the first series under the Marvel Spotlight banner, and Head of Streaming Brad Winderbaum said of the decision to launch the new banner with Echo, “Marvel Spotlight gives us a platform to bring more grounded, character-driven stories to the screen, and in the case of Echo, focusing on street-level stakes over larger MCU continuity. Just like comics fans didn’t need to read Avengers or Fantastic Four to enjoy a Ghost Rider Spotlight comic, our audience doesn’t need to have seen other Marvel series to understand what’s happening in Maya’s story.”
