Recently, the trailer for Marvel Studios’ upcoming television miniseries, Echo, was released on YouTube. The trailer was mainly praised for its dark tone, which will be constant throughout the series as it is Marvel Studios’ first TV show to receive a TV-MA rating. As per Discussing Film, some people have pointed out that the series is on the level of Breaking Bad, Netflix’s Daredevil, and John Wick movies, but fans said that the series cannot be compared to Breaking Bad.

The upcoming show indeed shares a lot of elements from Netflix’s Daredevil but Breaking Bad is a completely different show and comparing the two makes no sense.
