Jennifer Garner Returns as Elektra in ‘Deadpool 3’

In an exciting development, Jennifer Garner is set to reprise her iconic role as Elektra, the antiheroine, in Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated film, Deadpool 3. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Garner will have a significant part in the movie, which is currently in production with Ryan Reynolds returning as the wisecracking antihero, Deadpool. Joining Garner in this adventure is Hugh Jackman, reprising his role as Wolverine, suggesting a potential multiverse angle for the film.

This marks a significant return for Garner, who last portrayed Elektra 20 years ago. Elektra, a lethal assassin skilled in the art of wielding sai, was initially introduced in Marvel comics as a love interest for Daredevil, played by Ben Affleck in the 2003 film of the same name. While the film didn’t achieve blockbuster success, it paved the way for Garner to star in her own spinoff, Elektra, released by 20th Century Fox two years later. Despite not making a significant impact at the box office, Elektra gained recognition as one of the few female-led comic book films of the early 2000s.
