Zack Snyder: "Elektra Lives Again"

 Director Zack Snyder, noted for DC Comics movies "Man of Steel", "Justice League" and "Watchmen", revealed he would work with Marvel Studios for an adaptation of the Eisner-award winning 1990 graphic novel "Elektra Lives Again", by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley:

"Do you know that Frank Miller comic book? It's a graphic novel about 'Elektra'," said Snyder. "'Daredevil is having these dreams about Elektra coming back to life, and it's really cool and weird. Its just cool and beautiful. That's what I would do..."

" 'Elektra Lives Again', 'Matt Murdock' aka 'Daredevil' attends confession. He tells the priest he is still haunted by the death of his lover 'Elektra'. He describes a recurring dream of Elektra climbing a snow-covered mountain. In the dream, Elektra is horrified to come upon her 'sais' buried in the snow. She also notices her hands are covered in blood which she cannot wash away. 

"The next day Murdock dreams again. This time Elektra is pursued across the mountain peak by former victims, who catch her and torture her. Murdock wakes, but slips back into another dream, this time of an occult ritual involving 'The Hand'. Still in the dream state, he receives cryptic information that Elektra is alive..."
