I’ve been attending WonderCon 2016 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and I happened to stop by the Loot Crate booth to get some goodies! This is their exclusive WonderCon 2016 edition of Loot Crate that you can only get at WonderCon. I actually hadn’t really thought about it, but I was wearing the new DareDevil/Punisher beanie that came in their March 2016 “Versus” themed crate. I do like DareDevil, but there is something about the Punisher that made be choose his side! Anyway, one of the girls at the booth recognized it of course and told me a lot of people were choosing the Punisher side too. Check out what I got in the box below!

In more exciting news, Marvel has announced the casting of Daredevil’s on-again, off-again love, Elektra! Actress Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) has been confirmed to portray Elektra in season two the Netflix-exclusive Marvel hit, Marvel’s Daredevil.
According to the release, Elektra will be a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past who resurfaces in his life who “may be more than he can handle.” A bit of a departure from the assassin sent to kill Daredevil, but we’ll see where this goes.
Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb on the casting:
After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity. Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for.
Yung’s Elektra will make her debut in season two along with Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle, aka Punisher, which should make for some interesting action and tension for Matt! With the slight change to her origin, I wonder what her backstory will be?
