Marvel has announced that Elodie Yung (Jinx in G.I. JOE: RETALIATION) will be joining the cast of DAREDEVIL season 2 as Elektra. 

I will say upfront that I don't know Elodie Yung's work all that much, but she does seem to be an extremely beautiful woman.  Which really isn't a required trait to play Elektra, just a personal commentary from me.  I am definitely a fan of beautiful women.

Some people might complain that she's not Greek, and this is just another attempt at "pandering to social justice warriors" (not my words, I just pulled that from one of the many articles whining about Sam Wilson as Captain America, Miles Morales as Spider-Man, Kamala Khan as Ms Marvel, or Jane Foster as Thor), but I have always felt strongly like the best actor or actress for the part should get the role, not just trying to stick as closely to the comics as possible.  If I just wanted the comics version, I would read the comics.  A fresh adaptation is always more appealing to me that a direct copy.

Elodie Yung already has my vote since she played Jinx, a ninja badass, in the last GI JOE movie.  I didn't see GI JOE: RETALIATION, but the image I found of her from that movie already makes her look more like Elektra than Jennifer Garner ever did.

Elodie Yung joins the great cast from season 1 of DAREDEVIL, and new addition Jon Bernthal as the Punisher.   I loved DAREDEVIL season 1, and season 2 is shaping up to be even better.   My only question now...WHO IS PLAYING BULLSEYE?
