Marvel CCO Teases Plans For 'Elektra' And 'The Punisher' In DAREDEVIL Season Two

Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada talks here about bringing Jon Bernthal and Elodie Yung to season two of Daredevil as The Punisher and Elektra, dropping some hints in the process about the kind of impact they'll have on season two of the Netflix series. Hit the jump for details...

Before this year's San Diego Comic-Con, we learned that Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) will play The Punisher in season two of Daredevil, while Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) will also be joining the cast as Elektra. Talking to IGN during the annual event, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada had this to say about how exactly the show will go about balancing the screen time between all of these characters. "That’s why we pay our amazing Writers Room the big bucks. Doug Petrie and Mark Ramirez, the co-showrunners, have concocted an amazing series, an amazing season this year and believe me, sparks will fly and it’s going to be pretty phenomenal."
 
As for the decision to cast Bernthal as the vigilante who the Man Without Fear will square off against in season two, Quesada added: "We’re so happy to have Jon Bernthal because we have such a world-class cast on Daredevil; we have a world-class actor in Charlie Cox that we want to make sure we chose and were able to attain an actor who is on that same level so I think the combination of seeing Charlie and John perform those parts on the same screen. It’s going to be epic, absolutely epic." Yung meanwhile will also be making her presence felt, and the CCO had nothing but good things to say about her. "[We] scoured the world for the right Elektra and, man, she is the character. She looks like the character, she walks like the character, and then she has the martial arts training and stunt background that she can rely on. It’s going to be really, really awesome to see her take over the role and see how she embodies and how she personifies Elektra." Which of these characters are you most looking forward to seeing in Daredevil?
