Elodie Yung Joins DAREDEVIL as Elektra

The second season of Daredevil has added another challenge for its title character. Marvel Studios announced on Tuesday that Elodie Yung will play Elektra in its acclaimed Netflix series.

Here's the full press release:

Elodie Yung Cast as Elektra in the Netflix Original Series 'Marvel’s Daredevil'
The mystery woman from Matt Murdock's past to debut in 2016!

Elodie Yung (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “District 13: Ultimatum”) joins the next season of “Marvel’s Daredevil,” streaming only on Netflix in 2016!

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.”

“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.”

Charlie Cox is going to have his hands full as Matt Murdock in Season 2 of Daredevil. Jon Bernthal joined the show last month as Frank Castle/The Punisher.

Like Daredevil and the Punisher, this isn't the first time Elektra has been portrayed on the big screen. Yung follows in the footsteps of Jennifer Garner, who played the character in the Daredevil movie and its spinoff, Elektra.
