Top 5 actresses who could play Elektra – Videogame BANG! Episode 85

who should be knew elektra

Daredevil hit Netflix this year like a wrecking ball. The TV series did the unthinkable and pretty much erased all the damage done to the franchise by Ben Affleck’s chin. Daredevil is already green lit for a second season and rumors of new characters and crossovers are running wild. Punisher, Blade, and Spider-Man are all names being thrown around, but there is one character that you can bet your bottom dollar will appear in the new season of Daredevil: Elektra. (The only one of the aforementioned characters that was actually referred to in season 1, by the way.)

There was speculation about some possible audition tapes for Elektra leaked online, which got us here at Videogame BANG! thinking… who should play the new Elektra? Clearly Jennifer Garner is everyone’s first choice, and we are sure she will get first dibs on the role, but if for some reason she decides to pass, here is our wish list for actresses to dawn the crimson bathing suit:

5. Arianny Celeste

Okay… I’ll be totally honest, this is more of a fantasy pick based on my wet dreams of seeing Arianny in the Elektra costume only. To my knowledge she cannot act, and she has probably never even heard of Daredevil or Elektra before in her life.. Regardless even if she does not get cast as Elektra, which she won’t, there is still hope that someday she might cosplay Elektra?

4. Mila Kunis

Now this may be a logistical long shot, but Mila Kunis wrote the book on that sexy exotic look needed to pull off Elektra. One downfall to Mila is that she might be TOO beautiful in a Hollywood sense. The actors and actresses in Marvel’s Daredevil are typically more realistic beautiful people as opposed to the more glamorous beautiful people you see on the CW.

3. Olivia Munn

The former G4 beauty and now hollyweird actress would be a perfect fit for Elektra. She has geeky roots so we know she would be true to the character, and her acting has much improved. The problem with Munn is that a rift may form in the Marvel universe because she is already set to play Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse. This isn’t a complete deal breaker, as both Chris Evans and Ryan Reynolds have both played multiple different characters in Marvel flicks. For Munn it may be a case of too much too soon.

2. Eliza Dushku

Eliza Dushku is another Hollywood veteran bombshell that has an acting resume making her more than qualified for the role. She has a good relationship with Marvel already, voice acting She-Hulk in Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. At 34 years old, she is only 2 years older than Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox, meaning that age shouldn’t be an issue. If she is up for the role she would make an amazing Elektra.

1. Katrina Law

This was an easy choice for us here at the Videogame BANG! Katrina Law is a certified ass-kicker with a resume that spans two great franchises: Spartacus and Arrow. She is crazy stupid beautiful in terms of both physical appearance and personality. Not only would she be perfect for the role of Elektra, I think the role of Elektra is perfect for her in her career right now. Maybe we can see her ever improving acting ability go to the next level.

With any luck we will get to see Katrina Law as Elektra, but the truth is anyone on this list would do a great job. What about you? Do you agree with the list or is there someone else out there you think would make an awesome Elektra?
