Marvel has announced that they have cast Elodie Yung as Elektra in the second season of Marvel and Netflix‘s Daredevil. Roles of note, she played Jinx in G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
The character of Elektra was hinted at in the show’s first season, so the character being cast is expected. Jennifer Garner played the character in the Daredevil film and a spin-off film.

According to Marvel’s post announcing the casting:
Yung will play Elektra, a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle.
Marvel’s Daredevil will stream only on Netflix in 2016!
After week’s a speculation and rumors that Frank Castle aka the Punisher would be coming to the Marvel Cinematic world, Marvel has announced on their website that actor Jon Bernthal is going to be taking on the role. The actor is known for his role in another comic turned television series, The Walking Dead as well as the movies Wolf of Wall Street and Fury.
The character will premiere in the second season of Dardevil which airs on Netflix. That will premiere in 2016 and the first season can be streamed now.
Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb said that “Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”
From the Marvel announcement:
Bernthal will portray The Punisher, one of Marvel’s most popular characters. He is a vigilante who aims to clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter how lethal the results.
The character has been on the big screen a few times already, and Marvel obtained the rights again recently. The character was portrayed by Dolph Lundgren in a 1989 movie, Thomas Jane in a 2004 film, and Ray Stevenson in a 2008 film.
The character is a former cop, and member of the military, who turns vigilante after his family is gunned down by the mob. His origin has varied at times.
It shouldn’t be a surprise, but it has been announced that Marvel and Netflix‘s Daredevil will be back for a second season.
