"Marvel's The Defenders" won't lack for familiar faces -- and another returning character has just been announced.

The superhero cross-over series will reunite characters from multiple Netflix shows when it premieres in 2017, and we now know that Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung) from "Daredevil" will be among them. Elektra made her "Daredevil" debut during Season 2, appearing as a blast from the past for Matt Murdock (Charlie Day). Their history and on-again, off-again relationship, plus her serious combat skills, made for some interesting material.

Like Elektra, Matt (also known as Daredevil) will star in "The Defenders." He'll join forces with Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) to form an all-star superhero team, ready to protect the people of New York City.

News of Elektra's involvement came today, in the form of a tweet with a quick glimpse at the character in all her intense glory.

"The Defenders" will continue Marvel's adventures on Netflix in 2017.
