Synopsis

Box set containing three popular superhero movies. 'Elektra' is a martial arts spin off from director Rob Bowman. Jennifer Garner plays Elektra Natchios, a hired assassin who is reunited with her old sensei, Stick (Terence Stamp). When she is given an assignment to kill Mark Miller (Goran Visnjic) and his daughter, Abby (Kristin Prout), her conscience gets the best of her and she decides to protect them instead. It's up to the Hand's top assassins to track her down and finish the job. Ben Affleck stars in 'Daredevil' (2003), a big screen version of the Marvel Comics superhero adventures. When he was a boy, Matt Murdock (Affleck) was blinded by a spillage of toxic waste. However, with the loss of his sight, Matt's other senses have all developed to an incredible degree, allowing him to navigate the city with pinpoint accuracy. Now he works by day as a lawyer, and by night he becomes the Daredevil when he uses his supersenses to continue his fight against underworld supervillain Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan). Finally, 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' (2003) is based on the graphic novels of Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill and brings together several literary characters from the Victorian era to prevent the Fantom beginning a world war. It is 1899 and Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery) is summoned from Africa by the British government to head a team of men with extraordinary abilities. The team includes Dr Jekyll (Jason Flemyng), Dorian Gray (Stuart Townsend), Captain Nemo (Naseeruddin Shah), vampire Mina Harker (Peta Wilson), Tom Sawyer (Shane West) and invisible man Rodney Skinner (Tony Curran) to form The League. Their assignment is to track down the infamous Fantom, but the catch is that they only have 9 hours before he plans to sabotage the peace conference in Vienna. Will they work as a team and complete the mission or will their egos get in the way?
