"Daredevil" - The Return Of 'Elektra'

Sneak Peek Marvel's 'Elektra' on the news that actress Élodie Yung will play the character in Season 2 of the Marvel TV /Netflix series "Daredevil":

"After a worldwide search, we found in Élodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity," said Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb.

"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."

Elektra is a 'kunoichi', female ninja assassin. She wields a pair of bladed 'sai' as her trademark weapon. 

Created by Frank Miller, Elektra first appeared in Marvel Comics' "Daredevil" #168 (January 1981), as a love interest of the superhero 'Daredevil', but her violent nature and mercenary lifestyle divide the two.

In the 2003 film "Daredevil" and its 2005 spinoff, "Elektra", the character is portrayed by Jennifer Garner.
