Eiza Gonzalez Responds To Negativity She’s Received Since Elektra “Rumor” Made The Round

Thanks to legions of so-called ‘scoopers’, the Internet is a minefield of misinformation. While some legitimate insiders clearly have access to accurate information about upcoming projects, many people — and websites — don’t know (or don’t care) the difference, and even the most blatant nonsense can often spread under the guise of a rumor.

One of the biggest culprits is the Marvel Updates Twitter account (@marvel_updat3s), which has (somehow) managed to garner more than 60,000 followers. Earlier this year they tweeted that Bloodshot and baby driver actress Eiza Gonzalez was cast as Elektra in the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again Disney+ series.

It was a bunch of nonsense, of course, but the “rumor” was picked up by several sites anyway, and Gonzalez has now responded.

It seems that Gonzalez has gotten some “hate” from fans, possibly because many of them have the false impression that she will take over from Élodie Yung, who played the killer in the now-defunct daredevil Netflix show.

Gonzalez hasn’t let the negativity stop him from playing a superhero, though, adding: “Hopefully I’ll be playing a cool superhero at some point in my career and it’s going to be a lot of fun and I’d be honored to even be considered. In the meantime, I’ll be watching Daredevil and sending that cast all the love.”

As things stand, we have had no indication that Elektra will even be part of Born againbut if the character ever makes her MCU debut, chances are Yung will be in line to reprise the role.
