Spoilers for Daredevil Season 2 to follow…..
For those of you who have seen Daredevil season 2, you will know that it does not end well for the unpredictable Elektra. However, it was clear that Elodie’s character was not quite finished. After her death, she was seen being placed into a chamber by the ninja’s of The Hand, along with an ancient device (potentially able to resurrect a person), left Elektra’s future ambiguous. With this announcement comes confirmation that her character will return in some way, but what, and who will she be fighting for now?
Marvel’s The Defenders will begin streaming ON Netflix sometime in 2017. Shortened to 8 episodes and full to the brim with a great cast – I’d say we’re in for a real treat!
