French-born actress Elodie Yung (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) has been cast as Elektra in the upcoming second season of “Marvel’s Daredevil” on Netflix.
The new season, which began shooting in New York this week, will include at least three new key characters from the comics – Frank Castle/The Punisher (Jon Bernthal), Elektra (Yung), and the yet to be announced cast member as the assassin Bullseye.
Elektra was hinted at during the show’s first season but has yet to appear on screen. Her character description for the show reads as: “a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle.”
“Marvel’s Daredevil” will kick off its second season on Netflix in the second quarter of 2016.
