For those of you who may still have the sour taste of 2003’s Daredevil somewhere near the tip of your tongue, we have some good news for you.
Hopefully, you’ve marathoned your way through Netflix’s phenomenal series Marvel’s Daredevil starring Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire, Stardust) as Matt Murdock. Questions have arisen about the possible appearance of his comic-book love interest Elektra joining in upcoming seasons, which Marvel answered.
French Actress Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, District 13: Ultimatum) has been cast as Elektra. The good thing is we KNOW she can fight.
“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.”
