‘Daredevil’ season 2 spoilers: Meet the new Elektra!

We knew that it was only a matter of time before we started to hear a little more news on “Daredevil” season 2, and this time we’re talking about a particularly big story. After all, it is thrusting one of the more-noteworthy Marvel characters into the spotlight.

It has been confirmed now that Elodie Yung is going to be playing this character in more than likely several episodes of the Netflix series, which gives the “GI Joe: Retaliation” star a chance to move on past what Jennifer Garner did with the role so many years ago. The show plans to depict her as a very mysterious woman with ties to Matt’s past, but also someone capable of a great deal of destruction.

Clearly, Marvel is fine with making season 2 of this series as star-studded an affair as possible, given the recent casting of Jon Bernthal of “The Walking Dead” fame as the Punisher. These two characters give “Daredevil” quite the super-powered punch, and this was a show that already generated a great deal of positive buzz throughout its first season. There is no word as of yet as to who is definitely the “big bad” this time around.

The new season of the show is going to start streaming at some point early next year, and we could not be more excited to watch things unfold. It already appears that the show has a plan to really up the ante and make the new batch of episodes somehow even more thrilling and action-packed than the original … and that is really saying something.
