Defenders video teases the resurrection of Elektra
Though we knew Elodie Yung would return for Marvel’s The Defenders, and by extension her character Elektra would need to be brought back to life, Marvel Entertainment and Netflix have released a brief video teasing her return. Check it out below!
The Defenders will cross over Netflix’s hit Marvel series — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. It stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage and Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist. In addition, Elden Henson will be reprising as Foggy Nelson along with Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Eka Darville as Malcolm, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Scott Glenn as Stick, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Elodie Yung as Elektra, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. It has been hinted that Jon Bernthal’s The Punisher will return for the series as well, but that remains unconfirmed. Sigourney Weaver, meanwhile, will play the antagonist of the series known only as Alexandra.
Marvel’s Daredevil co-showrunner Marco Ramirez will serve as showrunner and executive producer for the series along with Drew Goddard, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Director S.J. Clarkson (Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Dexter) will direct the first two episodes of the culminating mini-series event. The eight-episode series will premiere in 2017 along with Marvel’s Iron Fist and Marvel’s The Punisher.
Marvel’s The Defenders will debut on Netflix Friday, August 18.
