ELEKTRA MOVIE UPDATE
The first trailer for the Elektra movie, starring Jennifer Garner in a reprisal of her role from Daredevil, will debut online on Thursday on Yahoo Movies, 20th Century Fox has informed The Continuum.
The trailer will also be shown on the syndicated Access Hollywood television series.
"It keeps me on my toes," Garner said of all the stunt work. "I'm not sleeping my way through, that's for sure."
Garner's costume in Elektra more resembles the comics version than what she wore in Daredevil.
"(With) Elektra, you have to have a litte skin, trust me" Garner said. "There's red, there's skin, there's boots ... all the Elektra stuff."
Although Goran Visjnic is starring in the film, don't expect much romance, Garner said.
"This is not a love story," Garner said. "This is much more about her own journey. There is a tenderness between these two characters, but Matt Murdock is the love of Elektra's life in the comic books and that's kind of sacred ground."
