There was a reference to her in the phenomenal first season of Marvel’s Daredevil, but that was about it for Elektra. Now, we’ve got a face to put with the name – and what a face! Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, District 13: Ultimatum) will be joining the cast for season two in 2016. The casting news was recently reported over at Marvel.com.
Yung joins the previously announced Jon Bernthal who will be playing Frank Castle. Castle, aka “The Punisher” is also on a mission to clean up Hell’s Kitchen, but he doesn’t share the same moral code as protagonist Charlie Cox. One thing’s for sure: Marvel’s Daredevil really knows how to cast wonderful supporting characters.
From the article at Marvel.com:
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.”
