Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for the last episode of Daredevil Season 2 and some aspects of Iron Fist.
Over the past couple years, Marvel Television has done an amazing job of slowly building the world of The Defenders. It started this journey with the best known member of the group, Daredevil. From there, we saw Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and finally, Iron Fist hit the small screen, rounding out the core group that we’d see going forward.
Despite the relatively grounded nature the series, they’ve recently taken things into a more ridiculous and supernatural realm. Daredevil Season 2 saw the introduction of the very comic booky (go figure) organization of The Hand, and Iron Fist saw the return of said organization, and the introduction of the idea of resurrection.
At the tail end of Daredevil Season 2, Elektra met her end, but even then it was clear that we hadn’t seen the last of her. We saw her put into a jar-like coffin by members of The Hand, pretty much telling us she’d be back. After what we’ve seen in Iron Fist, we now know that resurrection is a very real possibility in this world, and that The Hand has done it before.
In this new 15-second teaser from Marvel, they tease the return of Elektra, though it’s unclear what this’ll mean for the series itself.
Check it out below:
So if it all wasn’t clear enough, Elektra will be coming back. We’re thrilled to see what this means for the Defenders in the upcoming 8-episode limited series.
Actress Elodie Yung, who plays Elektra in the series, even followed the tweet up with her own.
