Marvel has found its Elektra for Daredevil Season 2.
Marvel.com announced Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, District 13: Ultimatum) has joined the cast, which also includes Jon Berthal as The Punisher.
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.
“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,” said Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “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.”
Daredevil Season 2 is due out in 2016 on Netlix.
