In the movie Elektra, with Jennifer Garner, she was called "The Treasure", in which she was an assassin trained by Stick that could resurrect the dead.

Does that story have anything to do with the Elektra in Marvel's The Defenders, the TV series ?

    The Elektra movie doesn't share the same continuity as the Defenders. She's a crossover from the Daredevil TV series.

Both the Elektra from the film (who also appeared in the Daredevil movie) and the Elektra from the TV series are based on the same comic book character. But there is no continuity between the film and the series: both are independent adaptations of the same source work.

  • Can you back that up with some evidence?

    @Valorum the 2003 Daredevil movie, and 2005 Electra spinoff movie, are not part of the MCU. The Netflix shows are. From Wikipedia: "A television series of the same title [Daredevil] but set in a different continuity, by Netflix and Marvel Studios, followed, premiering in 2015." Commented Aug 20, 2017 at 13:54
  • @RemyLebeau - Wikipedia is a fan-written encyclopedia and hence can say anything without justification. If I felt like spending the effort, I could go and change it right now so that it says the precise opposite

    @RichardC - You keep telling me about these interviews but I haven't seen a link to, or a quote from any of them. My advice is to find one and use it as the basis for an answer.
