Daredevil Season 2 Casting Elektra?

It just keeps on getting better and better for us comic fans regarding movies and comic-related TV shows.

Recent audition videos leaked online recently sparking rumors that the actresses were auditioning for the role of Elektra for Daredevil Season 2 Netflix show. The video had actresses Louisa Mignone and Shiva Kalaiselvan auditioning for the role of a character named Elise.

Both videos were tweeted by Marvel_Spider and have since been deleted and taken offline. However, the videos showed both actresses doing the same two scenes. One was with a criminal victim and the other with Matt Murdock during his college years.

In Season 1 of Daredevil, a Greek fellow college student and love interest of Matt Murdock was mentioned, and this has sparked rumors that role of Elise is suppose to be for the role of Elektra. Maybe true and maybe not, but the signs do look good.

Whether or not this is true and the role really is for a character named Elise, I've no doubt that Elektra will be introduced in the Daredevil Netflix show. The fans want it and it makes very little sense not have the character in at least one or two episodes of the series. She is an iconic character in the Daredevil mythos, and it's no surprise she  was created by comic artist and writer Frank Miller.

Looks like this is shaping up to have a good chance of happening and the sexy assassin will get her streaming due on Netflix. Louisa Mignone and Shiva Kalaiselvan kinda look the part of one Elektra Natchios also.

Now all they need to do is start auditioning for the roles of Frank Castle and Bullseye. Of course, nothing is confirmed yet concerning Elektra meeting the Hornhead in Season 2, but this is the latest and hottest rumor going around the web-o-sphere.

I hope this ends up being true just as a fan of the Netflix series and the comic character. Of course, my Daredevil #168 and first appearance of Elektra rising in value isn't a necessarily a bad thing either.


  1. YYYEEESSS!!!! Great news Mayhem. Glad I wrapped up the DD 168 deal a long time ago. Can definitely imagine Louisa Mignone in that role! I mean, perhaps she will make me forget that other actress who donned the mantle before ;-)


    1. Well, hopefully, they get it right this time. I actually don't mind Jennifer Garner as an actress. I blame those in power over the Elektra movie sucking than her specifically. Either way, bring on Elektra!

  2. Hey Mayhem,

    had to celebrate this message and just went through my DD 168 again. Got to say that it really has top notch writing - the way FM introduces Elektra with a flashback scene - awesome. After one issue alone you feel you know this character. I was a little disapointed when I read DD 158 in comparison, which only had the art by FM. The story gave me next to nothing. Just my point of view...

    1. Well, Mr. Rebo, I do have to agree with you. Frank Miller is a great comic writer and story teller and has a way of pacing and drawing a really tight story. I'm damn excited to see Elektra redone live action, and I think those at Marvel and Netflix know that Elektra not being in one of the seasons would be a loss for fans and them. As long as they inject the Frank Miller version of the character, they shouldn't go wrong.
