Élodie Yung cast as Elektra in season 2 of Marvel's Daredevil

After months of speculation, Marvel has finally cast fan-favourite Elektra for the second season of its hit Netflix show Daredevil.

The role will be played by French actress Élodie Yung, who you might recognise from the American remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She also starred as a red-leather clad ninja in CGI slugfest G.I. Joe: Retaliation, so fans of the character can rest assured that the role is in experienced hands.

Daredevil

In the comics, Elektra Natchios is a skilled mercenary who becomes romantically involved with blind-lawyer-turned-crimefighter Matt Murdock. The character was first portrayed on screen by Jennifer Garner in the now-infamous 2003 film flop. We can only assume there'll be fewer Evanescence-laden training montages this time around.

Yung will be squaring off against not only Charlie Cox's titular vigilante but also the merciless Punisher, who will be played by The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal. There also rumours that Daredevil's long-time nemesis Bullseye will be showing up, although no casting announcement has been made. We can only assume that Colin Farrell is waiting by the phone.

As well as the casting announcement, Marvel also debuted a sleek new poster featuring one of Elektra's trademark knives.
