Jennifer Garner In Deadpool: Jennifer Garner is picking up Elektra’s sai once again. After a nearly 20-year hiatus, the actress is returning to the role of Marvel Comics’ assassin antiheroine for Deadpool 3, multiple sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

THR has reported that Garner will have a major role to play in the film, which is currently under production and stars Ryan Reynolds returning as the wise-cracking antihero Deadpool. Garner is not the only familiar face that is returning for an adventure with Deadpool, as Hugh Jackman is also back as the adamantium-infused hero Wolverine, reprising his role for the first time since 2017’s Logan. The fact that both of these key elements are returning could hint at a fact about the film that has long been rumored: Deadpool 3 could be setting up a cinematic multiverse angle, with superheroes from multiple different dimensions coming together for the third film in the Deadpool saga.

Garner first played the Marvel assassin in 20th Century Fox’s Daredevil, the 2003 feature that starred Ben Affleck as the Man Without Fear. While the film was not a hit, it did spawn a spinoff, with Garner toplining solo act Elektra two years later. That too, was not a box office success, but it was noteworthy as Garner was one of the few women to lead a studio comic book movie at the time.

When she first played Elektra, Garner was in the middle of her starring turn as secret agent Sydney Bristow in ABC’s thriller Alias, which ran over 105 episodes from 2001 to 2006. Her recent movies include the 2021 Netflix hit Yes Day and a poignant appearance opposite Reynolds in sci-fi adventure The Adam Project, which Levy directed.

For Garner, her role in Deadpool 3 marks the end of a 20-year gap in playing Elektra, a sai-wielding assassin who was created for the Marvel comics as a love interest for Matt Murdock/Daredevil before ultimately becoming a version of Daredevil herself.

Deadpool 3 is currently in development stage, despite the ongoing writers’ strike, Deadpool 3 is currently shooting, with the first photos featuring Reynolds in costume recently coming to light. The film will be the first Deadpool feature to be helmed by Marvel Studios since its parent company Disney purchased 20th Century back in 2019, allowing them to bring Deadpool into the MCU auspices. Deadpool 3 will be directed by Shawn Levy & is being produced by Levy, Reynolds, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. Deadpool 3 will be released on May 4, 2024.
