More opportunities started opening up for Elodie in Hollywood and she made a great transition when she was cast as Miriam Wu in David Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” (2011). She soon had minor roles in block buster action movies such as “G. I. Joe: Retaliation” (2013), where she played an assassin called Jinx, and in “Gods of Egypt” (2016), where she played the Goddess Hathor. Her latest movies also include “Narcopolis” (2015) and “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” (2017).

Even with her movie career taking a big step forward in recent times, Elodie Yung is mostly recognized for the exceptional role as Elektra. She was cast for the role of the ninja assassin in season 2 of Netflix’s “Daredevil” and she was so good in the role that she made a comeback in the joint adventure series “The Defenders” as the same character. There are no speculations if she is going to be back for some later projects. But being that she has gained a large following with her role, she might make a comeback sooner than we anticipate it. Not a lot of people known that Elodie actually trained karate since she was 9 years old and has a black belt. This helps her perform all of the needed stunt work for her roles and is what helped her immerse herself into the role of Elektra so perfectly.

Elodie Yung Wonder Woman

Among many actresses that were potentially thought of the role for Wonder Woman, Elodie Yung was one of them. This actually came to be after the announcement was made that Gal Gadot would actually get the role, but it just appears so that Elodie was in close contention to get the part. Her slender figure was perhaps not suited for the role and she would have to bulk up a bit. But her skills in combat and stunt work were a great advantage for her. Unfortunately, in the end Elodie was not cast as Wonder Woman, but we still got one of the best superhero movies of the year. The movie might have been completely different and may not reached the same heights as it did now.
