Marvel have announced that Elodie Yung has been cast as Elektra for the second season of Daredevil.
Yung – who appeared in G.I. Joe: Retaliation and District 13: Ultimatum – will play the mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past in the much-anticipated second season of the Netflix exclusive.
Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, commented on the casting;
“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. 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.”
Jon Bernthal was previously confirmed to appear as Frank Castle/The Punisher.
Daredevil will return in 2016.
