Daredevil Season 2 Set Pics Feature Elodie Yung As Elektra

The seed for Elektra's appearance on the series was planted in a flashback sequence in which Matt and Foggy reminisce about a Greek ex-girlfriend. That means that the character is definitely out there somewhere, probably being trained as an assassin, and that it won't be long until she finds her way to Hell's Kitchen. In the comics, Elektra was hired by the Kingpin to kill Daredevil. Based on what happened to Fisk in season 1, that storyline could easily play out in the show's sophomore year. Elektra is a monumentally important character in the Daredevil mythos and is due for some live-action redemption. Her appearance in the series could also pave the way for storylines featuring The Hand (which were also teased in season 1), so story-wise, it makes the most sense to bring her in sooner rather than later. Plus, we need more strong female characters in the MCU and few fit the bill as well as Elektra does.

A user over on Reddit has snapped some images from the set of the currently shooting second season of Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil, and they seem to provide a glimpse of Elodie Yung (G.I. JOE: Retaliation) as Elektra Natchios in full costume… albeit a very blurry glimpse.

The character was actually briefly shown in the first teaser a while back, but this gives us a better idea of how she’ll look in her superhero duds, and she also appears to be carrying one of Elektra’s trademark sai.

In addition, the uploader provided a vague report on what was being shot here. According to him, there’s plenty of hand-to-hand combat, with Elektra and the Man Without Fear himself (Charlie Cox) seemingly on the same side. At some point a group of cops appear, and this prompts Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle, A.K.A. The Punisher, to get involved, too.

Obviously, the poor quality makes it difficult to verify any of this, but with any luck we’ll get some clearer images before too long.

Daredevil season 2 is expected to premiere around April of next year.
