We’ve assumed since the last episode of Daredevil that Elodie Yung and her character Elektra would be returning for Defenders. Due to the cliffhanger ending suggesting the Defenders series would in fact include elements of the Hand-Chaste War and Shadowland.
MCU Exchange has spotted a photo posted by Yung on her Instagram confirming she’s currently in New York City, days before production is set to begin on Defenders.
If Elektra does return (very likely), that’s sort have been setup in season two of Daredevil. It’ll likely be in the role of a villain alongside The Hand and Sigourney Weaver‘s character.
Defenders is expected to drop sometime in late 2017 on Netflix.
