You’d be forgiven to wonder who from the Netflix Marvel casts hasn’t been confirmed for The Defenders at this point, but Daredevil’s Elodie Yung at least remained a question, given the state we last saw Elektra in. Well, someone had a Hand in bringing her back, as The Defenders will officially be Elektra-fied.

The Defenders confirmed as much over Twitter, noting along with the announcement “the strong survive.” Yung’s return was somewhat expected, given – spoiler alert – Elektra’s demise and likely-impending resurrection by The Hand, who have long been announced as a major component of The Defenders.

The casting follows earlier announcements of Jessica Henwick, Scott Glenn, Rosario Dawson, Rachael Taylor, Simone Missick, Deborah Ann Woll, Carrie-Anne Moss, Elden Henson and Eka Darville. The team-up series will be helmed by Daredevil showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, beginning production later this year with Jessica Jones director S.J. Clarkson.

In addition to the return of supporting cast outlined above, Sigourney Weaver has signed on as the main, as-yet-unidentified villain. There’s still at least a few potential returns to await, but how might Elektra’s The Defenders return come to pass?
