Jennifer Garner as Elektra

Jennifer Garner is a capable actress who has played memorable parts in a handful of great movies, but there’s something completely off about her casting as Elektra. She’s a bit flat, and never really approaches the level of sexy villainy required to make for a perfect Elektra. It also doesn’t help that she isn’t actually Greek, which is a problem. Even more confusing is that she was brought back for her own spinoff, which is even harder to watch than Daredevil.
