She looks like she could be Elektra. Seems like a bit of a waste to make her anything else...

Good actress, will just need to wait and see if it all works out. But I'm quite hopeful of the show from what I've heard.

Edited by movieartman

1.) see her fully nude in trance (2013) & Alexander (2003)

2.) logic dictates she be echo, im sure she would be great at it, and id love to see ronin on film, but.... i genuinely believe the universe will be a better place if we get to see her sexy tan ass wrapped tightly in crimson silk!

3.) but if that is not to be then Morena Baccarin for elektra!

4.) typhoid mary?

5.)

She's nothing but eye candy, an average actress at best.

@movieartman: What acting skills does she have? Name some movies. Prove me wrong. I dare you.

Noice.

@inferiorego: One of mine too. In Wizard Magazine she mentioned how her uncle was a comic artist and she and her brother still read superhero comics like Flash, Green Lantern, and such.

Don't know who she's playing but good casting nonetheless

She's decent looking at best.

Kirsten McDuffie is the best and most obvious option They'll wanna keep this relatively grounded and not overload it with blatant costumers.

She only needs to be an average actress to be McDuffie. She's been in multiple movies where she is paired with a male interest/companion, and she's good at it.

I was thinking she could be McDuffie too but I hope not. I'd rather her be Elektra.

Of course it's subjective. Nobody is inarguably hot.

You want them to handle Elektra for the first time since Garner in a 12-episode mini-series dedicated to Daredevil? Not at all. This needs to be a superhero story grounded in crime. Sow the seeds, sure. Maybe reference her in the final episode and bring her in for The Defenders. End the final episode on her being sent to kill Foggy and having him recognise her.

Since when is she a Daredevil-related character?

Posted by daredevil21134

I wonder why they wanna keep her casting a secret. I would think if she was Elektra they would want people to know. I hate to say but I think it's Mcduffie too

Not a huge fan of her acting...but phew, she's good looking. Can't wait to see who she plays. And I always love a woman who embraces nerdy/fun roles, Clerks, Sin City,Death Proof, now this!

Edited by Stormdriven

She's hot, and a good actress. Can't wait to watch it.

Posted by Vaeternus

Now I have reason to watch this :)

Edited by RazzaTazz

My first thought was actually Karen Page, but maybe that character is already cast.

Posted by Petite_Oiseau

I immediately thought of Maya Lopez, followed by Elektra. Regardless, I'm super super excited for this.

Posted by MideonNViscera

Basically the only woman she can't be is Karen Page, who is so long dead (or at least feels that way) that she may never appear anyway.

Also, she's very hot.

Posted by Spideysense44

She looks JUST like White Tiger

Posted by DaredevilDD78

Cool

Posted by lesterlawton

@inferiorego: What other movies has she been in?

Sin City, Clerks 2, The Rundown, MIB 2, Death Proof. She's actually been in over 50 films.
