Released in the USA on January 14 of 2005, «Elektra» is an Action/Adventure/Crime/Fantasy/Thriller film directed by Rob Bowman, and written by Mark Steven Johnson, Raven Metzner, Frank Miller, Zak Penn and Stu Zicherman , starring Jennifer Garner, Goran Visnjic, Kirsten Prout, Will Yun Lee, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and Terence Stamp.

Storyline:
The film continues the storyline of the film Daredevil wherein Elektra was killed by Bullseye. The story is introduced by a man's voice (later revealed to be the martial arts master Stick) explaining that there is an ancient war being fought between good and evil. The evil is introduced as a group called The Hand, while the good follow Kimagure, a martial art that supposedly allows its practitioners to foresee the future and control life and death.

The next scene introduces Elektra dispatching a squad of bodyguards to get to DeMarco, who has somehow run afoul of the hired killer. DeMarco is sitting in a larger armchair, resigned to his fate, and Elektra kills him by throwing one of her Sai into the back of the chair and through him. It is later revealed that Stick revived Elektra after she was killed in the previous film. For a while she was trained as his student, but soon she is asked to leave; thus beginning her life as an assassin.
