Her hair alone is 10 times better than Jennifer Garner's. At least we should get a black haired Elektra now, unless they go temporarily insane and have her dye it brown and put some waves in it.

Yup. It's weird that they never attempted to give Garner black hair or anything.

I'm glad Elektra is in this season. I'm not sure why she's not getting her own show.

Eh. I'm indifferent towards the casting, but have no reason to not like it. I'm sure she'll do a great job

Garner didn't look remotely like Elektra. She just looked like Sydney Bristow in one of her many outfits. And she had a completely different personality in her own movie to the DD movie, which was weird.

I hope this Elektra is very different to Garner's portrayal. No more of this obsessive compulsiveness or brooding. I hope no little girls show up either to bring back a bit of humanity to her. Also no Croatians from ER. Can you believe he was one of the four finalists for James (or as he might say "Shames") Bond against Daniel Craig?

She looks perfect, don't know what this is about she looks too asian. Elektra has never looked actually Greek in the comics at all, she just looks like an exotic babe.

Not my ideal vision of Elektra (Monica Bellucci), but a huge improvement from Jennifer Garner.

Monica Bellucci is way too old for Elektra though. She was never going to be in the running.

I guess I should've said a younger Bellucci or someone with a similar appearance.

As far as looks go she is great.

All the acting in the first season was great, so I'm sure the material will bring the best in her.

She's going to own this role.

Monica would have been good in the early 2000's but she's a tad too old for the character right now next to Charlie Cox. She was also the ONLY reason to watch Matrix Reloaded <3

I wonder how involved in the action she'll be?

I have a feeling she might be there more for love interest purposes than action this season at least, leaving most of the fighting to Daredevil and the Punisher.

I don't know about that.

They hired a known martial artist straight away.

Otherwise, they could have hired a different actress and "trained her up" as it were.

No... Judging from what was in the press release:

"Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for."

It confirms she'll be fighting this season.

I sort of hope she won't be fighting with Daredevil at least against the Punisher.

I would really like to see them going at each other 1 on 1 over the season.

I can see her maybe helping him out assuming the Ninjas are present this season.

Over the years, I've felt that Elektra was sometimes drawn with a bit of an Asian look anyway. So, casting a half-Asian actress kind of makes sense to me. Between the Punisher and now Elektra, I can't wait for season two!
