Trivia / Elektra

The film:

  • Box Office Bomb: Budget, $43 million. Box office, $24,409,722 (domestic), $56,681,556 (worldwide).
  • Deleted Scene: 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, Matt Murdock.
  • Franchise Killer: Daredevil put it on life support, Elektra put a firm-sai-into-the-gut/dagger into the franchise, for lack of a better analogy. The rights reverted back to Marvel within 7 years and they negated the continuity of the movies.
  • Old Shame: For Jennifer Garner.

The comic book character:

  • Elektra's initial appearance was based on Lisa Lyon, a female bodybuilding pioneer.
