Elektra “Definitely Has A Costume” In Daredevil Season 2


There was no announcement about a Punisher series during the Daredevil panel at the TCA winter tour, but the Netflix show’s team did reveal quite a lot about Elektra, including a clip which showed an intense moment between Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and Ms Natchios (Élodie Yung). Plus, co-executive producer Marco Ramirez promised, “There’s definitely a costume.” They just weren’t revealing it yet (no surprise – we didn’t get to see Daredevil’s costume in season one until the last episode). However, he did add, “Elektra isn’t just about protection. She’s a bit of a stylist,” and her costume in the series needed to reflect that.

Élodie Yung had this  Elektra: “Elektra is kind of a sociopath. This world is a game for her, like a chess game. What motivates her is what she wants, she’ll use anything she needs to use to get to her goal, and if she needs to kill people she would. On the other hand, we wanted to create a character with different layers… I think Elektra isn’t a bad person, she’s not a good person, she’s a person with different traits.”

Ramirez also revealed that the show will see more and more comic book elements, but they’ll be within the gritty tone of the show. What the team considers in developing them is “what looks cool, how much do we love the comics and can we do that?”

The clip featured Elektra breaking into Murdock’s apartment and the two of them having a chat that, according to Deadline, was “notable in the amount of palpable history between the two characters that is conveyed. Years of lingering heartache and regret on both their parts was made clear.”

As for that Punisher series question, co-executive producer Doug Petrie seemed to suggest he knows a little more than he’s allowed to reveal in public. “What we can say is that we’ve had the pleasure of introducing Frank Castle into our hell’s kitchen and our world.”
