Frank Miller Weighs In On Netflix’s “Daredevil’s” Elektra: “That Is Not Her”

Season two of Netflix’s “Daredevil” is on the way and it’s bringing with it a few major cast additions — namely Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung). During an appearance last weekend at Brazil’s Comic Con Experience convention, Elektra creator Frank Miller spoke frankly about both the show and the inclusion of Elektra.

In a panel recap first translated by Bleeding Cool, Miller admitted that he had not watched Netflix’s “Daredevil,” despite how much he cares about the character. When asked what he thought about Elektra’s addition to the show, he replied: “they can do whatever they want, that is not her.” Miller later added that yes, he does consider himself “her father.” CBR has confirmed the English translation from Portuguese.

Frank Miller created and later killed Elektra in the comics with the understanding that Marvel would never bring her back to life. Elektra stayed dead for a number of years, but was brought back to life in the comics in 1994, 12 years after her death.

You can briefly see Yung as Elektra in the season 2 teaser Marvel Television debuted at New York Comic Con in October. “Daredevil” season 2 arrives in 2016.
