Alaqua Cox is playing Maya and will be introduced during Hawkeye’s six episode run. Maya, in the comics, has also run in the circles of Daredevil, Moon Knight and the Avengers.

Vera Farmiga is her mom Eleanor, Florence Pugh reprises her Black Widow role of assassin Yelena Belova, Fra Fee plays villain clown Kazi, Tony Dalton is Hawkeye’s mentor Jack Duqesne and Zahn McClarnon is William Lopez, Echo’s dad.
