During an appearance at a Fandom Spotlite Wizard World panel back in 2020, Elodie Yung expressed her interest in returning to the role of Elektra. “Let me tell you, I love this character because she’s so complex and broken. She’s got a lot of villain in her, and that I can relate to, and also a lot of good. It’s such an amazing character. I would love for Marvel to bring her back,” Yung said at the time.
