Ever since Daredevil released on Netflix last year, I have been LOSING MY MIND waiting to hear more news about “The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen.” Well the wait is over, Illuminati confirmed, we got Elektra. Let me repeat, WE NOW HAVE ELEKTRA.
As if having my favorite Sai wielding assassin wasn’t enough, crew members from the Daredevil set have nicknamed this season “Daredevil Vs. Punisher” which can mean only one thing…
It’s no news that Season 2 will be featuring Marvel’s favorite gun toting vigilante (who will be played by Joe Bernthal of The Walking Dead fame) but the rumor mill has been grinding away since last May with supposed leaked audition footage for the role of Elektra. At their NYCC panel this past Saturday, Netflix finally dropped the bomb, and the role of Elektra Natchios will be played by Elodie Yung.
But wait, the Daredevil party train doesn’t stop there. The lovely Rosario Dawson has also been confirmed to reprise her role as Night Nurse in Season 2, and that role could soon be expanding into the other Defenders series, AKA Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.
This is going to be awesome.
