Elektra Confirmed for The Defenders

With Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage all taking their places in the TV corner of Marvel and Iron Fist getting ready to join them in March, things are almost ready for the team-up series of Marvel on Netflix, The Defenders.

The casting news has been coming quite frequently lately and actors like Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), Trish Walker (Rachel Taylor), Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple)  have all been confirmed to return for the team-up series. Now, another character about whom the fans were very curious is confirmed to return. It is no one other than Elektra Natchios played by Elodie Yung.

Elektra is the lover of Matt Murdock who met him during his college years intentionally to train him and check up on him upon the orders from Stick, Murdock’s blind martial arts master. She immediately became a fan favorite character in season 2 of Daredevil and with the cliffhanger of the season’s ending, her fate was something every fan was very much interested in.

Here is the short video confirming her return twitted by The Defenders’ official Twitter account:
