The hype for the first season of “Marvel’s Daredevil” hasn’t even come close to dying down yet, and we’ve got news on season 2 that’s lighting the web abuzz. Elektra will be introduced in the new season, and the actress has been cast.
Elodie Yung will be joining the show as Elektra, described as “a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle.” This is in addition to Jon Bernthal joining as Frank Castle, The Punisher, so season 2 is going to be bringing in quite a few fan-favorite characters.
On a related note, Elektra has been a romantic interest for Daredevil for ages, but has also had a relationship with Punisher during their time together in General Ross’s Thunderbolts team. However, it’s unlikely that we’ll need to worry about that coming into the picture any time soon, since the last thing the show needs is a love-triangle. (I never saw the appeal in pairing Punisher with Elektra anyways, especially given her bloodied past and his tendency to shoot anything with a criminal record.)
Season 2 of “Marvel’s Daredevil” will be streaming on Netflix in 2016, along with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist getting their own shows, before they connect together for The Defenders.
