Marvel casts Elektra for season 2 of Daredevil

So Marvel’s Daredevil made some news this week as French Actress, Elodie Yung, has been officially cast as Elektra. This follows on the news that season 2 of Netflix’s acclaimed series will have a Punisher v.s. Daredevil feel to it. She is described as follows: a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) past, whose dangerous ways could be more than even the Man Without Fear can handle.


Elodie Yung has featured in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and District 13: Ultimatum. Elektra is a fan favourite Marvel character who is a deadly assassin, frequent villain and also a love interest to Matt Murdock. She was portrayed by Jennifer Garner back in 2005’s solo film Elektra (Although we shall not speak anymore of that!).
