Matt Murdock has had several love interests in the comic books over the decades. However, his most famous is Elektra. The character was the female lead in the 2003 film, but was merely an off-hand mention in Season 1 of “Daredevil” or Netflix. The fan favourite character will make her debut on Season 2 of the series, which is currently filming. “Elodie Yung will play Elektra, a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle.” While I personally had a different choice in mind for the role of Elektra, I think Elodie Yung will do well in the role. She has an exotic look, and has an aptitude for the martial arts aspect of the character. Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television said this about the selection; “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.” It is likely that “Daredevil” season 2 will debut in April of 2016.
