Jennifer Garner is returning as Elektra for Deadpool 3

Jennifer Garner is returning as Elektra for Deadpool 3.

The announcement originates from The Hollywood Reporter, who promptly pointed out that Jennifer Garner collaborated with Ryan Reynolds and Shawn Levy on The Adam Project. This suggests that the decision to bring her back as Elektra in Deadpool 3 was likely made a while ago, indicating a long-standing plan.

Garner initially portrayed the enigmatic anti-hero assassin in the 2003 film Daredevil, alongside Ben Affleck as Matt Murdock. She later headlined her own standalone movie, Elektra, in 2005. While Daredevil achieved moderate success at the box office, Elektra struggled to break even. Nonetheless, critics praised Garner for delivering a powerful and formidable performance in both films.

Although Marvel has previously allowed actors like William Hurt, Tim Roth, and Tim Blake Nelson to reprise their roles from the pre-MCU Hulk movie in the MCU, there is a possibility that Deadpool 3 will take the multiverse approach. This speculation arises because the Marvel Cinematic Universe already features its own version of Elektra, portrayed by Elodie Yung in the Netflix Daredevil series.

The film, directed by Shawn Levy and written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (known for their work on Deadpool and Deadpool 2), is set to make history as the first R-rated film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Notably, Emma Corrin from The Crown and Matthew Macfadyen from Succession have joined the cast in undisclosed roles. Additionally, returning to the film are Rob Delaney, Brianna Hildebrand, Shioli Kutsuna, and Karan Soni. Excitingly, Hugh Jackman is coming out of his Wolverine retirement to engage in an epic showdown with Deadpool, which is highly anticipated by fans.

Deadpool 3 is scheduled to release in theaters on May 3, 2024. For further information, you can refer to our comprehensive guide on the Marvel timeline or discover how to watch the Marvel movies in chronological order.
