Eiza Gonzalez denies being cast as Elektra for Daredevil reboot

Last Updated on October 10, 2022

Elektra is on the offensive–except it’s not Elektra at all, but Eiza González, who has taken to social media to deny any involvement in being cast in the reboot series Daredevil: Born Again.

González recently tweeted, “No I’m not cast as Elektra in Daredevil I have already [an] ongoing series exclusivity contract to 3 Body Problem. Ur welcome.” The project she’s referring to is an upcoming Netflix sci-fi series The Three-Body Problem.

She also took the time to call out haters who apparently did not like even the idea of González being cast in Daredevil: Born Again. “Id appreciate if I could live free of negative ill intended messages about me playing/stealing? a role that I don’t even know about. Thank you and wishing you all the best”, accompanied by a heart emoji.

Charlie Cox, who played Matt Murdock/Daredevil on the series Daredevil, has said Daredevil: Born Again will be a full-on reboot and not a continuation of his show. “It is a Season 1, it is not Season 4, so it is a whole new thing.” Cox reprised the role on TV on The Defenders and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, in addition to lending a cameo in last year’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Daredevil: Born Again has been greenlit for an 18-episode first season. Details are fairly limited on the show, but we do know Charlie Cox will again play Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio will reprise his role as Kingpin. Daredevil: Born Again is expected to premiere on Disney+ in Spring 2024, contributing to yet another busy year for the MCU.

Eiza González recently co-starred in Michael Bay’s Ambulance.
