“Defenders” Video Teases Elektra’s Return

Marvel Entertainment and Netflix have released a brief video teasing the return of Elodie Yung’s Elektra Natchios character in the upcoming event series “The Defenders”.

Elektra was introduced in the second season of “Daredevil” as a former flame of Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox). Elektra was last seen dead with her corpse being taken by The Hand and placed in a stone sarcophagus. It’s expected she’ll be reborn as the next ‘Black Sky’.

“The Defenders” will cross over Netflix’s hit Marvel series “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” as the quartet of heroes goes up against a villain known as Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver). The eight-episode series will premiere on Friday August 18th.
