12. Elodie Yung to Play Elektra On Season Two of Daredevil

Daredevil (GalleyCat)Elodie Yung has been cast as Elektra Natchios for season two of Marvel’s Daredevil series. Yang, little-known in the United States, has appeared in several films from her native France.

Entertainment Weekly reports that “Elektra was referenced in the show’s first season, as Matt told Foggy things ‘didn’t work out’ with a certain Greek girl.” Netflix will air new episodes of this show in 2016.

Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter: “She’s described as a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) past, whose dangerous ways could be more than even the Man Without Fear can handle. In comic book lore, Elektra Natchios is a trained assassin who is sometimes Matt’s lover and sometimes his enemy. The sai-wielding antihero was created by Frank Miller and first appeared in 1981’s Daredevil No. 168.”
