Echo Interview: Composer Dave Porter On Joining The MCU After Better Call Saul & Breaking Bad


Marvel's Echo, the new Disney+ series under the Marvel Spotlight banner, has defied early rumors of trouble in production and has been described as a fresh and exciting addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Alaqua Cox delivers another standout performance as Maya Lopez, cementing her place in the MCU after her debut in the Hawkeye series. 

Echo has been praised for its authenticity and the musical score plays a crucial role in capturing the tone of the show. 

Dave Porter, known for his work on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, was brought on board to craft a score that seamlessly blends shades of gray storytelling with authentic Choctaw Nation chants and music.


In an interview with Screen Rant, Porter discussed his favorite moments in Echo, including the show's grounded and character-focused approach. He also touched on the challenges of stepping into an established Marvel universe and the importance of incorporating Maya's deafness and Choctaw heritage into the music.

As for future projects, Porter expressed his interest in continuing to work with Marvel and potentially revisiting characters like Kingpin and Echo.

 However, there are currently no confirmed plans for further collaborations.
