With Froggy's one throwaway line about a smokin' Greek girl from Matt Murdock's past, I was immediately excited about the impending emergence of Elektra in Netflix's Daredevil.
Now, I'm ecstatic to report that Elektra is certainly joining the cast of Season 2, and they've already cast the chosen a new up-and-comer to bring her to life on the small screen.
And the lucky lady chosen to wield a pair of bladed sai is...
You may not be familiar with Elodie Yung, a young actress of French-Cambodian descent, but I'd be willing to wager that you won't be disappointed. Oh, how I love this casting choice. Let me count the ways:
1. She played Jinx in G.I. Joe: Retaliation
And looked almost exactly like Elektra without even trying.
2. She's has a black belt in karate
And brings the kind of raw energy to every fight scene that we want to see from our favorite conflicted female ninja.
3. She was one of the hottest parts of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
And she was hardly even in it. As Miriam Wu, she was the girl that Lisbeth Salander picked up at the club.
4. Her casting announcement brought us a new poster
And now I really can't wait for the second season.
