Elodie Yung cast as Elektra in Daredevil Season Two
The Punisher (played by Jon Bernthal) will be making his debut as a 'villain' in the second season of Daredevil and now Matt Murdock's love interest will be arriving in Hell's Kitchen too. There have been rumours that Elektra would be appearing and now it has been confirmed that Elodie Yung will be taking on the iconic role. Jennifer Garner previously played Electra in the Daredevil movie and spinoff Elektra.
Marvel's Jeph Loeb announced that "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.”
Loeb then added "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.”
Following the announcement, Marvel released this description of Elektra's involvement in Daredevil season two.
Yung will play Elektra, a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle. The first season of Marvel’s Daredevil made reference to Elektra, but now Yung will portray one of Daredevil's fan-favorite characters. Elektra marks the most recent major addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as she will join Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle in the upcoming season of the Netflix Original Series Marvel’s Daredevil.
Now we just need the rumours of Bullseye's casting to complete what is sure to be a thrilling second season of Daredevil.
