15LOOKS WORSE: ELEKTRA
As an actress, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with Elodie Yung. She’s done fine in whatever movies she’s in, even if the films themselves are mildly disappointing. An actress with great screen presence and charisma, she should have been the perfect Elektra Natchios. She wasn’t. Not only did she fail to
capture the female assassin’s raw animalistic intimidating nature, but the costume was just atrocious.
Yung’s Elektra took away the character’s complexity; everything that made her intriguing and captivating for readers was gone. Yet it’s the costume we’re here to talk about. Wrapping a red scarf around your face and then going out to fight ninjas on rooftops does not Elektra make. The character’s costume is iconic, but to change it so haphazardly was almost an insult. The final nail in the coffin was when Marvel tried making Elektra comics featuring the assassin in the horrible Netflix garb.
