Marvel has announced that actress Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, District 13: Ultimatum) has been cast in the second season of ‘Daredevil.’ Yung will play Elektra Natchios, one of Daredevil’s fan-favorite character.
“A mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle.”
Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb on casting Yung:
“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. 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.”
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern-day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Executive Produced by Doug Petrie, Marco Ramirez and Drew Goddard, along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb.
Stars: Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Jon Bernthal (Frank Castle, aka The Punisher), and Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple).
