You can cast color blind for some roles, but you can't do that when the character's ethnicity is central to the mythology of the character. You can't cast Lady Shiva with a white woman. That doesn't work. You can't cast Black Panther with anyone other than a black man and you can't cast Elektra Natchios with an absolutely Asian actress. It fails the character. I'm not saying it will tank the entire second season of Daredevil, but it is doing yet ANOTHER injustice to the character of Elektra. So so far she's been used in the Daredevil movie, the Elektra movie, now Daredevil season 2 and we will have yet to actually see Elektra on screen. They will call this woman Elektra, but she won't be Elektra.
