Eiza González Denies Elektra Casting For Daredevil: Born Again

Matt Murdock is heading to Disney+ in 2024’s Daredevil: Born Again. Charlie Cox will reprise his role as Matt Murdock/Daredevil from the Netflix series, and Daredevil‘s Vincent D’Onofrio will also return to the series as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin. However, more casting rumors regarding key characters are now beginning to circulate, including Eiza González for Elektra Natchios. It makes sense that fans might link González to a Marvel property given her rising star power, but she shut down all speculation in a series of Tweets.

González definitively tweeted that she would not be appearing in Daredevil: Born Again. With her current contractual commitments to other projects, it simply wouldn’t be possible even if she were asked.

Unfortunately, González received harmful messages regarding the buzz surrounding Elektra. Despite the negativity, González graciously sent her best wishes to the cast as she will be “watching” when the show arrives.

In the Netflix series, Elektra is an elite assassin who originally started as a love interest for Matt Murdock. However, Elektra’s violent nature causes a schism with Murdock, resulting in a breakup. Élodie Yung played Elektra in the Netflix series. Before Yung, Jennifer Garner famously portrayed the assassin in 2003’s Daredevil and the 2005 spinoff, Elektra.

The plot for Daredevil: Born Again remains under wraps. It is also unknown if any other actors from the Netflix show will reprise their roles. Nonetheless, the series received an 18-episode commitment so the future sounds bright for the blind vigilante. 

Daredevil: Born Again will premiere on Disney+ in early 2024.
