Netflix's original series, "Daredevil" welcomes a new cast for season 2! Elodie Young replaces Jennifer Garner and takes on the title of Elektra and will appear as early as episode 1!
Elodie Yung is known for her role as Jinx from "G.I. Joe Retaliation" as well as Miriam Wu from "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." The Cambodian/French actress is said to be part of Netflix's "Daredevil" season 2 cast!
According to the recent report of EW, the "G.I. Joe Retaliation" actress will portray Elektra in the upcoming season 2 in the Netflix original series. Elektra was mentioned during the first season of "Daredevil" "as Matt told Foggy things 'didn't work out' with a certain Greek girl."
Elektra whose real name is Elektra Natchios, is a former girlfriend Matthew Murdock back when they were in college---way before he became the Daredevil. However, with the unfortunate death of her father, she decided to leave Matthew Murdok and pursue learning martial arts in Japan. It's reported that she will cross paths with Matthew Murdock as the Daredevil in the future.
Also according to IMDB, the newest cast member will appear as Elektra in the first episode of "Daredevil" season 2. What a treat indeed for "Daredevil" fans!
Aside from Elodie Yung, Jon Bernthal also confirmed that he will be part of the cast for the upcoming season of "Daredevil." Jon Bernthal, famous for his role as Shane Walsh in the hit AMC series "The Walking Dead," will portray Frank Castle who is more commonly known as The Punisher in season 2 of "Daredevil."
Other than Yung and Bernthal, it was previously confirmed that season 2 of "Daredevil" will still include Rosario Dawson. She will return as Claire Temple. Rosario Dawson also shared her views on the news of Bernthal joining the cast.
"That's going to raise the stakes so much more, because Matt Murdock almost behaves like the Punisher in the first season," Dawson shared with MTV. "[Matt] crosses the line quite often, so it's going to be really interesting to see how they differentiate them and where that goes."
