'The Defenders' Cast Update: Elodie Yung’s Elektra Confirmed To Join Marvel’s Biggest Superhero Mashup
Marvel's biggest superhero mashup "The Defenders" has recently confirmed the addition of the fan favorite character, Elektra. The fandom of Marvel Comics previously took to social media to request Elodie Yung's Elektra be on board the superhero ensemble coming to Netflix in 2017. Now, the ninja assassin has been confirmed to come back from the dead to make things more difficult for Charlie Cox's Daredevil and his new team of superheroes.
Yung is recently reported to reprise her role as Elektra in the upcoming Marvel-Netflix project "The Defenders" which is expected to premiere in 2017. Since Yung is rewarded with a season regular position, her Elektra character is expected to appear in all eight episodes of the series that will bring Daredevil, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Finn Jones' Iron Fist, and Mike Colter's Luke Cage all together in a mission to save the world from one ultimate villain.
Elektra first appeared in "Daredevil" season 2. It can be remembered that the character was previously revealed to be the secret weapon of the ninja clan called Hand from the said show. In the clan's attempt to take over Hell's Kitchen, Elektra met her demise in "Daredevil" season 2 finale. However, her body was recovered by the Hand organization, and it is surmised that the clan will resurrect Elektra to unlock her strongest potential as the deadly ninja, Black Sky, hence her appearance in "The Defenders."
With that said, it is presumed that the character will play as a villain, although she will not be the main antagonist in "The Defenders." This follows the previous report that Sigourney Weaver is set to play the "biggest villain" role (which still remains unrevealed) in the miniseries as announced at this year's New York Comic Con.
Other stars previously confirmed to join the big crossover miniseries are Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeryn Hogarth), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), Rachael Tayler (Trish Walker), Scott Glenn (Stick), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), and Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing). Jon Bernthal's The Punisher was also rumored to appear in "The Defenders." However, both Marvel and Netflix have not given any word about it yet.
"The Defenders" is reportedly a culmination of what is presumed as the first phase of MCU's Netflix TV storyline. The said plotline already began its story through the solo shows "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones," and "Luke Cage," and will continue through "Iron Fist" before it finally falls to the mashup. "The Defenders" is slated to premiere sometime in 2017 where the network is expected to drop an exact date towards the end of this year.
