DAREDEVIL Star Elodie Yung Responds To Fan Asking Where Elektra Is As Work Resumes On BORN AGAIN DAREDEVIL Star Elodie Yung Responds To Fan Asking Where Elektra Is As Work Resumes On BORN AGAIN

Cameras are once again rolling on Daredevil: Born Again, and while Foggy Nelson, Karen Page, and Bullseye are all returning, there's been no mention of Elektra. Now, Elodie Yung has briefly weighed in...

Marvel Television majorly dropped the ball on Elektra in both Daredevil and The Defenders. From how she died to her eventual return as a pawn of The Hand, creative missteps were made with the character that actress Elodie Yung did her best to counter with a compelling, enigmatic performance. 

Now, with Marvel Studios in charge of the Man Without Fear and the Netflix TV shows considered "canon," fans are eager to see Yung's Elektra get a second chance thanks to Daredevil: Born Again's recent creative overhaul. 

Several characters from Daredevil have been brought into the upcoming Disney+ series and Elektra is a character with so much potential that it would be simply mind-boggling to leave her on the shelf much longer. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like Yung has heard anything from Kevin Feige and company. 

Responding to a fan on Instagram who asked what became of Elektra, the actress responded by simply saying, "Ask them!" 

We may see the assassin in the second half of Daredevil: Born Again, but squeezing the character into whatever story Marvel Studios hopes to tell with this revival series could be a tall order. As a result, there's a chance Elektra will remain on the sidelines with the plan possibly being to reboot her post-Avengers: Secret Wars

Even so, we remain hopeful that Yung gets a second chance as we're sure you'll agree it will be badass to see her return to Hell's Kitchen suited up and ready to take the fight to the Kingpin of Crime...or perhaps even as the Mayor's enforcer and bodyguard! 

"Oh my God, I would love to [return]," Yung said in a 2020 interview. "Especially since they’ve adjusted my costume. I would love to. Let me tell you, I love this character because she’s so complex and broken."

"She’s got a lot of villain in her, and that I can relate to, and also a lot of good. It’s such an amazing character. I would love for Marvel to bring her back."

The cast of the series includes Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher, and Sandrine Holt as Vanessa Fisk.

Michael Gandolfini, Margarita Levieva, Nikki M. James, Michael Gaston, Arty Froushan, and Clark Johnson have all been cast in undisclosed roles and, as part of this creative overhaul, we now also expect to see Wilson Bethel suit up as Bullseye.

Daredevil: Born Again will likely premiere on Disney+ in 2025/2026.

I thought she was an excellent Elektra.

@rychlec - agreed

They could always bring her back if they return to The Hand story or even in Shang Chi or Thunderbolts since she is one of the deadliest martial artists on Earth

@noahthegrand - I guess this is rumors but it has been said a number of times that Feige will choose. What is canon from the Netflix shows and what it’s not so right there is an option for her to be alive.

She's probably somewhere rebuilding the Hand.

Oh my goodness please bring her back! I loved her sexy Elektra and her flirting with Matt! Her and Charlie Cox had MAD chemistry!

God... No ...
Please God no.....
Nooooooooooooooooooooooo

Horrible Elektra - voice, look and everything. Just horrible

Bring her back, so I can see Bullseye kill her.

I thought she was kinda forgettable. Not bad, necessarily, but I can't really remember much about her performance.

@Izaizaiza - She was good early on but by the time she was top dog of the hand I was at a point of preferring to watch the Elektra film tbh but given better stuff to work with have no issue her returning at all.

Cast an actual Greek actress, Kevin, then we'll talk.

She was decent and her and Cox had great chemistry. The Hand bullshit ruined her.

Before that, I liked that she was just a psychopath whom had a connection with Matt. Would’ve been interesting if she wasn’t that Black Sky bullshit and just a woman addicted to violence in the way Matt was; except she went a little further with it and embraced the urges more than Matt did. Basically, no catholic guilt.

@GhostDog - agreed

The Hand prophecy bullshit is always uninteresting.
GhostDog
GhostDog - 1/30/2024, 4:31 PM
@TheVisionary25 - yup. Even in the comics mostly; although Zdarksy did something actually interesting with them. Brubaker too a bit until Shadowland. I think there's a way to make that stuff digestible but it would take not taking it too seriously. The way John Wick does with its assassin's world. There's that line they play with.

@GhostDog - But then it's not Elektra, it's just random violent woman.
GhostDog
GhostDog - 1/30/2024, 5:41 PM
@ObserverIO - I don’t mind Elektra being trained by stick or having relation to the hand. It’s the magical chosen one aspect that’s boring to me
ObserverIO
ObserverIO - 1/30/2024, 7:46 PM
@GhostDog - Right, yeah. The whole black sky bit. Yeah that's taking it to a much more mystical kinda level. Less gritty street stuff, more Doctor Strangey.

Would be cool if she came back, but I'm fine with just seeing her on The Cleaning Lady because she's good on that show as well.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 1/30/2024, 4:02 PM
I liked her as Elektra and thought she did well in the role…

However even if they wanted to , it might be hard to bring her back (even for an episode) since she’s the lead of her own show right now.



Anyway , she had strong chemistry with Charlie imo so I would be down to see her in the role again…

Also her fate was ambiguous enough where they could bring her back pretty much anyway they see fit or not.

Hmmm....Interesting. I always had the sense that the consensus on this website was that there was hate for her portrayal of Elektra. Anyhow, I'd welcome her return. I very much enjoyed her in Daredevil.

Apophis71 - 1/30/2024, 5:28 PM
@BlackStar25 - When she first appeared on the show it was net positive reception here but by the time defenders came along was when it was leaning more negative but wouldn't say there was much in the way of hate for her as an actor and more about issues with the story/scripts but maybe I'm remembering wrong. That isn't to say there wasn't some negative reception from some however and more of the net positive folk have given up on trying to have sensible convos here than the persistent whiney butts who stubbornly stick around. I still feel most those who are more balanced in views think she was decent as an actor for the role whilst recognising there were issues with what she was given to work with.

She was waaaaaay better than that pasty ass Jennifer garner

Sooo...is Kirsten McDuffie still a thing, or did they drop her from the series?🤣 It'd be weird if they left Elektra out. I could totally see them teasing her at the end of the last episode.
ObserverIO
ObserverIO - 1/30/2024, 4:53 PM
@99OPTIMISTPRIME - Kirsten McDuffie should be in Batfleck's scenes in Deadpool 3. She represents Matt Murdock finally getting a happy ending, just before the end of the multiverse in Secret Wars (then Charles Soule undid it all afterwards).
And she should be played by J-Lo!

That would be Christmas coming early, and was so good as Elektra. You could see right into her sole and see how crazy she really was, superb acting.

I loved her in the role, bring her back!
RolandD
RolandD - 1/30/2024, 6:25 PM
She’s not who I would have cast. I would have looked for a Greek actress who looked more like Elektra from the comics, however I loved her in the part. She had great chemistry with Charlie such as at the diner or the scene in Fogwell’s. Bring her back. Ask Marvel!
DocSpock
DocSpock - 1/30/2024, 8:16 PM

Elodie was very good in the role.

And she has something... that kinda jazzes my loins.

I don't think they'll bring her back, but I want them too.

The Elektra movie was bad, but Jen Garner still looks great. I feel another restraining order coming on.
