DAREDEVIL Season 2: Elodie Yung Cast as Elektra and New Set Photos

Elodie Yung joins Daredevil Season 2 as Elektra
After announcing that Jon Bernthal would join the second season of Netflix's "Daredevil" series as The Punisher, it has now been officially announced that "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" actress Elodie Yung has been cast as Elektra Natchios. The character has been described by Marvel as being "a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle." Here's what Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb had to say about the casting:
"After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity…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."
Filming for "Daredevil" Season Two has already begun with new showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez. The new season will premiere in 2016. Until then, check out the set photos below:
