In Daredevil Season Two, Elodie Yung amazed us with her portrayal of Elektra, Matt Murdock’s college lover who returned to turn his world upside down. Her character was complex and likable, complimenting Charlie Cox‘s Matt Murdock. In the end (avoiding spoilers here!), we are left to believe that we will see her again, but in what context will that come about?
When asked if Yung would want Elektra to have her own show, she wasn’t as enthusiastic about the idea as her co-star Jon Bernthal has been when asked about a Punisher Series, but that isn’t because she doesn’t love the role.
I love Elektra. I really have a special place in my heart for her. It was very enjoyable for me to discover her and to adapt her for this project and bring myself to this character. So I have a special spot for her. Having my own show – it’s not something that I think of, it’s not. I think I would choose to do things because they are interesting, because I like a character or because it’s very well written. Or because it makes sense. So that’s my answer.
However, while not itching for her own series, Elodie has a vision for the future of Elektra. When she was asked about wanting to appear in The Defenders, she was completely on board with the idea.
“I would love to appear in The Defenders” she revealed. “I don’t know – because hopefully she’ll maybe be on the bad side. I don’t know – I don’t know what they’d do with Elektra in The Defenders but that would be a good dynamic I think – to be confronted by these four superheroes and I think it would be interesting – I’d be curious to see what they do.”
With the way Elektra ended Season Two of Daredevil, she could come back in a variety of ways, good or bad. The way she played the role definitely left me wanting to see more of her, in any capacity. What would you like to see of Elektra moving forward? Sound off in the comments below!
