Washington [US], October 6 (ANI): Hollywood star Eiza Gonzalez has finally addressed the reports of her being cast as Elektra in 'Daredevil: Born Again,' the Marvel series being developed for Disney Plus.

The Mexican star also pointed out that she had been receiving hate from fans that seemingly didn't want her in the role through her Twitter handle. "I feel like I'm just gonna get it out of the way because, One, I'm confused as for the amount of hate over this, and two, I feel like it saves people energy," she tweeted. "No I'm not cast as Elektra in Daredevil I have already [an] ongoing series exclusivity contract to 3 Body Problem. Ur welcome."In a second tweet, the 'Bloodshot' star added, "I'd 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."Lastly, Gonzalez said she was hopeful that one day she'll "get to play a cool superhero" but while that opportunity arises she will "be watching Daredevil and sending that cast all the love."According to Deadline, it is anticipated that 'Daredevil: Born Again' will premiere on Disney Plus in 2024 after receiving a first season order of 18 episodes. During Comic-Con last summer, the Daredevil with Charlie Cox version was announced. In the Marvel series, which was created for Netflix between 2015 and 2018 for three seasons, Vincent D'Onofrio is slated to return as Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin.

The series writers and executive producers will be Covert Affairs' Matt Corman and Chris Ord. (ANI)
