Elizabeth Banks was born and raised in Southern California. Her mother is a nurse while her father worked as a salesman. As a child, Elizabeth was always interested in acting and her parents never had much concern for her educational qualification. Despite this, she went on to play the same character in theater as many other talented actors and actresses before her. She even went on to write a book based on the novel The Immortal Times of Elizabeth Banks.
When she was twenty years old, Elizabeth Banks was cast in the first of the Spider-Man movies. She had mostly appeared in small roles before that and she found that although she had some experience playing these characters, her skill to play the character was lacking. In the third installment of the Spider-Man series, she was cast as Electro. This role saw her tackling another superhuman character, the Hulk. This role was not quite as well received by audiences as the previous roles and when the next installment of the series hit the shelves, it was not very positive response.

The role of Miss Hathaway was played by Isabelle awaiting her turn to be Hunger Games queen.
Having achieved success with The Hunger Games, The Dark Knight Rises, Elizabeth Banks decided to take a break from playing superheros and decided to make a series of movies of all-ages, which would star in an all-American female. The first of these movies to be produced was a spin-off of the successful Independence Day franchise where Elizabeth Banks again starred as an Independence Day heroine, this time a teenager named Summer Glaubermane. The movie did not do well at the box office and was panned by critics, however it did score very well at the movie festival. This followed a string of other great movies, including American Girls and The Best Five Years in Rehab, which cemented Elizabeth Banks’ place in Hollywood as one of the biggest female stars of all-time.
