!!The film:
* BoxOfficeBomb: Budget, $43 million. Box office, $24,409,722 (domestic), $56,681,556 (worldwide).
* DeletedScene: A lot of the deleted scenes on the Director's Cut reveal Elektra's backstory from her childhood.
** Also one where she has a rather steamy dream involving her ex, [[{{ComicBook/Daredevil}} Matt Murdock.]]
* FranchiseKiller: ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'' put it on life support, ''Elektra'' put a [[spoiler: firm-sai-into-the-gut/]]dagger into the franchise, for lack of a better analogy.
* GenreKiller: Along with ''{{Film/Catwoman}}'' and ''[[{{Film/LaraCroftTombRaider}} Cradle of Life]]'', its failure put Hollywood off films about female superheroes ''again'' following several flops in the 80's.
* OldShame: For Creator/JenniferGarner.
!!The comic book character:
* Elektra's initial appearance was based on Lisa Lyon, a female [[UsefulNotes/{{Bodybuilding}} bodybuilding]] pioneer.
