I always wondered how long it would be before Marvel’s Daredevil introduced Elektra. No need for wondering anymore, because we now know we’re going to be seeing the dangerous and exotic character come season two.
Marvel, yesterday, announced that Elektra Natchios will be making her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the upcoming season of Netflix’s hit series, Daredevil and the character will be played by Elodie Yung (you might remember her from G.I. Joe: Retaliation and District 13: Ultimatum).
If you’re familiar with the Daredevil (comic book) franchise, then you’ll almost certainly know who Elektra is. For those who don’t know, she is Matt Murdock’s ex (sort of) who also happens to be assassin. Her dangerous past and exotic ways more often than not proves too much for Matt to handle.
It would be really interesting to see how Elektra fits into the Daredevil story, which in my opinion is the best series to have debuted this year. You might also remember that The Punisher, (played by Jon Bernthal) is also said to be joining the second season of the show.
Both of these prove that Marvel is not joking around, and even though it seems unlikely, the second season just might beat the first one.
Season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil returns in 2016.
In case you need some reminding what an awesome series it is, here’s one season 1 trailer to jog your memory.
