Elektra Will Be An Almost 'Completely New Character' In The Defenders

Contains spoilers for Daredevil season 2

The next time we see Elektra, she won't be the same. Of course, coming back from the dead can do that to a person.

Elodie Yung will return as the one-time love interest of Daredevil (Charlie Cox) in the upcoming Netflix ensemble The Defenders, and because she's resurrected by The Hand, she won't exactly have free will. Yung recently told CinemaBlend that her Marvel character won't remember anything about her former life when she comes back.

"It was a great idea," she said. "I think [the writers] got really inspired by the comics. Elektra dies and comes back in a new outfit, and she's changed. It was a really cool and interesting thing to have Elektra again, just being a completely new character almost, because she doesn't remember anything. And so exploring kind of a new character was exciting for me. So this is where we start. And then Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver) takes over this new Elektra and forges her the way she wants her to be, if that makes sense."

From a previously revealed clip, we learned that Daredevil is still pretty torn up about Elektra's demise. Despite their differences in the past, she sacrificed herself to save him, and he wonders how she would feel about his decision to hang up his costume. But if Elektra really had her slate wiped clean, it could make for an interesting dynamic between the pair, especially if she's fighting for the bad guys now.

We'll find out when The Defenders hits Netflix on Aug. 18. Meanwhile, take a look at everything else coming to the streaming service next month.
