A lot has happened to Matt Murdock since returning to New York; there’s no Foggy or Kirsten, no-one remembers that he’s Daredevil, and he has a brand new sidekick called Blindspot. Following the recent battle with the villainous cult-leader Tenfingers, Daredevil’s world is set to get rocked once again as his first love Elektra returns, and we’ve got a preview from Marvel of Daredevil #6 by Charles Soule and Matteo Buffagni.
Season Two of Daredevil drops on Netflix this Friday, and it features Élodie Yung as Elektra Natchios, Matt Murdock's ex-girlfriend who also happens to be a ninja assassin. Yung is the second actress to play a live-action Elektra, but nobody really wants to talk about Jennifer Garner's two outings as the character in the less than fondly remembered Daredevil and Elektra films from 20th Century Fox. But if the first season of Daredevil is any indication, this promises to be a far more interesting take on the character. So what better time than now to look at some of the internet's best Elektra art?
We're less than a week away from the return of Netflix's Daredevil series, and this time, The Punisher and Elektra are coming along for the ride. To celebrate this, Comixology has a fortnight long sale on some of the best Daredevil, Punisher and Elektra stories in recent memory so you can catch up on the comics before the new series begins.
The sale includes the first volumes of classic Daredevil runs, including Frank Miller and Klaus Janson's legendary character defining work with the character from the eighties. Also by Miller and David Mazzucchelli is the seminal Daredevil: Born Again which was a major influence on the first season of the television series.
Late last night (and early this morning) saw Daredevil Season 2 sensing out a surprise look at Jon Bernthal’s Punisher and Elodie Yung’s Elektra fully outfitted in their final getup, over a week before the premiere. Now, a new teaser offers and even closer look at all three gearing up to take on a mysterious “ancient evil.”
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at Elektra, the Mediterranean's most successful ninja assassin. Whether a member of the Hand, lover of Daredevil, or agent of SHIELD, Elektra has consistently proven herself to be Marvel's most dangerous woman alive and then dead and then alive again. Find out all about Elektra's inspiration and creation, her strangest adventures, and legacy both in and out of the stories.
Marvel’s Daredevil gave fans in attendance of New York Comic-Con a quick glimpse at Season 2, including first looks at Elodie Yung’s Elektra and Jon Bernthal’s Punisher, though those outside the Javits Center were firmly out of luck … until now! Like so many before, enough version of Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2 teaser made it online for a glorious, HD rendition to appear.
Last year’s New York Comic-Con brought us our first look at Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil, and while Jessica Jones understandably pulled some spotlight this year, Matt Murdock is back with some punishing new enemies. Find out what we saw in the first official Daredevil Season 2 footage from NYCC 2015!
Comics covers are strange beasts. While comics themselves are sequential art --- pictures arranged in just the right order to tell a story or convey an emotion --- covers freeze that process into a single static image. But Mike Del Mundo's work at Marvel shows that they can be much more than pretty pictures.
You don't need me to tell you that Del Mundo's covers are gorgeous. He's an incredible draftsman with an even stronger sense of design. Covers let him push the latter talent to the fore, dancing through various styles, from stark two-color minimalism to detailed paintings, via pastiches of Escher and Art Deco posters, all depending on what suits this issue best.
You can now officially stop speculating, as Daredevil has completed the highly-anticipated task of casting Elektra. Elodie Yung, whom you may remember from G.I. Joe: Retaliation, has joined the cast of Season 2 in the role of the Greek ninja assassin and Matt Murdock’s new love interest. In addition, Netflix has also revealed the first teaser image for Season 2, promising Elektra’s imminent arrival.
