You may remember a couple weeks ago when Jon Bernthal was officially announced as The Punisher for Netflix's Daredevil, season 2. Well now another classic Marvel hero, Elektra appears to be joining the crew in Hell's Kitchen as well.

Played by Élodie Yung, Elektra is a trained assassin and former college girlfriend of Matt Murdock. She's also a long running romantic interest for the blind vigilante.



The Marvel Cinematic Universe on Netflix is getting bigger and bigger.

The cast for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse keeps getting bigger and bigger. Rounding out today's news is Ben Hardy, veterancast member of the long running British soap EastEnders getting the role of Warren Worthington III, more famously known as Angel.

Angel joining the cast comes as no shock to fans. He's a pretty integral part of of the Apocalypse storyline, and Bryan Singer released this concept art last week.



Though that does mean we'll have 4/5 of the original X-Men team.

Though famous for his role as James T. Kirk in the Star Trek reboot franchise, Chris Pine is apparently looking to expand his summer blockbuster resume by joining the DC Movie Universe as Steve Trevor, long-time romantic interest to Wonder Woman. Trevor has been rebooted and re-written several times through the history of the comic, but in his first incarnation, he was an Air Force pilot who crash landed on Paradise Island, exposing Diana and her crew of Amazon warriors.

It looks like Tilda Swinton is beating out Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy and Ken Watanabe for the role of The Ancient One, the mentor and ally of Stephen Strange. Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, is a former surgeon who after injuring his hands, discovers the supernatural world of magic and demons.

The Ancient One helps Strange become Earth's Sorcerer Supreme, and a prime candidate for The Avengers. While, The Ancient One has typically been portrayed as male, Tilda Swinton seems like the perfect choice to play an ethereal, immortal figure not of this world.

Former Goonie and star of Jonah Hex, Josh Brolin has all but been confirmed as the voice of penultimate Avenger's villain Thanos. Audiences briefly saw Thanos at the end of The Avengers, but you'll get a better look at him in August's Guardians of the Galaxy.

Thanos, will race the Avengers and the Guardians for control over the Five Infinity Gems which make the wielder omnipotent. So far, the only Infinity Gems we know about are the Tesseract from Avengers 1, and The Aether from Thor 2.

Get ready for at least three more MacGuffins.
