She is my choice for Psylocke. But Elektra is great too!

After looking at her Twitter, I hope Elodie Yung's role on ABC's new show Of Kings and Prophets doesn't limit Elektra's appearances in season 2. Nevermind. Looks like filming has been done for a while.

I wonder if they're gonna do the entire Elektra-Bullseye thing? Would've felt that with the Punisher involved they wouldn't go straight to Elektra, but I guess since they don't seem to be adapting a specific storyline (unless they are and I've just been out of the loop), we don't know how this season is gonna turn out.

Though, Bullseye is probably on the horizon as well. I'm down with Elodie Yung though, she looks the part and I really like Elektra personally, so I hope to see her character redeemed on Netflix.

I won't lie. I'm a tad disappointed with that casting. And I don't think I've been disappointed with a comicbook casting since the last Elektra, ironically! May be they'll surprise me.

Elektra's father is a diplomat, which involves plenty of travel across the world. If they want to make an issue of Elodie Yung's Asian ancestry, it's very easy to say Elektra's father met her mother while on an assignment somewhere in East or Southeast Asia.

I like the choice. I don't really remember her getting to do much real acting in G.I. Joe, but she can definitely handle the physical stuff.

Elodie Yung is French-Cambodian but they could say Elektra in the show is Greek- Cambodian.

Reading up on her Yung she seems well cast. Yung has a Masters degree in law, graduated from London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and is a karate black belt.

To be fair, I was hoping it was Genesis Rodriguez but if I've learned anything over the years, it's to trust Marvel Studios casting choices. Also, this casting explains a lot about how Elektra has always seemed as culturally Japanese as she is Greek and her mother has to the best of my knowledge, never been shown in the comics since she's been long dead. This casting is actually kind of brilliant.

Only seen her in Retaliation, but she was good in that and she certainly has the Elektra look. Awesome!

Barely anything, but she posted this on Instagram:

Nice to see both Bernthal and Yung express their enthusiasm for their roles.

Same here. I'm all on board with this casting. She looks fine in the role. But Miller must've been smoking something when he named her. Did he not ever even think that maybe it sounded like Electric Nachos?

I think that he simply looked at a list of Greek last names, found one that he liked, and went with it.

We didn't have electricity in the 80's. Or nachos.

It's not like the first name is bad or anything and even the last name is ok but putting them together? Well, the jokes just write themselves.

She is not as perfect for the role as Bernthal is, but not many are, seen her in Dragon Tattoo and GI Joe and she was fine in both acting wise. The girl can convince in an action scene as well, good choice.

Fantastic casting. They've been continually knocking it out the park with casting on Daredevil.
