33. Making That 'Elektra' Movie
While we'd like to see more female protagonists in comic-book movies as a whole, this 2005 misfire was not the way to go. The perky Jennifer Garner is insanely miscast as the Greek assassin/lover-enemy of Daredevil, and since the 2003 Ben Affleck star vehicle (see No. 28) that introduced the character wasn't so well received, why build a whole movie about the blind hero's girlfriend? Given the hand that fate deals her in that earlier film, the producers had to go to great lengths in order to bring the character back. They needn't have bothered.
