Matt Murdock has found his Elektra.

Marvel has announced that Elodie Yung, who appeared in G.I. Joe: Retaliation as Jinx, has been cast as Elektra in the upcoming second season of Daredevil on Netflix.

Elektra was referenced in the show’s first season, as Matt told Foggy things “didn’t work out” with a certain Greek girl.

Elektra, of course, appeared in the feature film version of Daredevil and even was given her own spinoff solo film. 

Yung’s casting marks the latest major Marvel character to be introduced in Daredevil‘s next season, as Jon Bernthal was previously cast as Frank Castle, the Punisher. 

Season 2 of Daredevil will hit Netflix in 2016.
