Season 2 of Marvel’s “Daredevil” on Netflix is shaping up to be even cooler than the first one (though that will be tough to beat.) It has already been announced that the Punisher will show up in the second season but it was also announced that Elektra will also appear in season 2.
Marvel revealed this week that French actress Elodie Yung has been cast in the role of the famous female antihero and occasional lover of Daredevil.
Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb said in a statement,
“After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity. Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for.”
The last time we saw Elektra onscreen, she was played by Jennifer Garner in the 2005 film Elektra and 2003 Daredevil.
Yung has not appeared much in America when it comes to film and television save for G.I. Joe: Retaliation. But she is poised to make a HUGE name for herself with her upcoming role in “Daredevil.”
Daredevil returns to Netflix in 2016.
