Reflecting on her standalone Elektra movie in a previous interview with THR, Garner expressed disappointment, particularly after witnessing the exceptional Marvel films produced under the guidance of Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

“At the time, it was such a shame, honestly, because once Kevin took over, everything there was elevated: the writing, the direction, the comedy inside of the stories they were telling. And I did not have that experience,” she stated.

“I had to be cut out of and sewn into the pleather pants every time I had to pee, and that was like a 45-minute undertaking. So I definitely held it in. And I had so many chicken-cutlet fake boobs in to make Elektra’s boobs; I think there were three on each side of different sizes. And everything was pushed up and out.”
