‘G.I. Joe’s’ Elodie Yung to Play Elektra in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’

Elodie Yung has been cast as Elektra in the second season of “Marvel’s Daredevil,” Variety has confirmed.

The character is a favorite of fans of the Marvel comicbooks that serve as the basis for the popular Netflix series, which stars Charlie Cox as justice-seeking lawyer/vigilante Matt Murdock. Although she was hinted at in season one, Elektra has yet to appear in the series. The casting description simply describes her as “a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle.” (Jennifer Garner portrayed Elektra in the 2003 “Daredevil” movie and in the 2005 spinoff).

Yung, a French-born actress, is best known for roles in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”

“Marvel’s Daredevil” returns to Netflix in 2016 with Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez stepping in to fill Steven DeKnight’s shoes as showrunner. The series comes via Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
