Fate deals young orphan Matt Murdock a strange hand when he is doused with hazardous waste. The accident leaves Matt blind but also gives him a heightened "radar sense" that allows him to "see" far better than any man. Years later Murdock has grown into a man and becomes a respected criminal attorney. But after he's done his "day job" Matt takes on a secret identity as "The Man Without Fear," Daredevil, the masked avenger that patrols the neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen and New York City to combat the injustice that he cannot tackle in the courtroom.

After negative critical and audience reactions, and Ben Affleck's refusal to play the character a second time, a number of producers and screenwriters attached to potential Daredevil reboot. An initial deadline of 10 October 2012 was set so that if the movie didn't start filming before that date, the rights would go back to Marvel Studios. Director David Slade was originally attached to direct, before dropping out over a scheduling conflict in August 2012. Director Joe Carnahan pitched a sizzle reel to 20th Century Fox executives, depicting the character in a hard boiled, 1970s-set thriller in Manhattan. But the studio chose to let the live action film rights lapse, and go back to Marvel. Marvel chose to reboot Daredevil (2015) as a live action television series for Netflix, with the character fitting within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. See more »
At Quesada's trial, Matt and Froggy appear to be representing the rape victim. In the US, a rapist would be prosecuted by the district attorney (the victim would not have to hire her own lawyer). If this was meant to be a civil suit, if she was suing him for damages after he'd already been found not guilty in a criminal trial, the jury would not have found him "guilty" or "not guilty" - they would have found for the plaintiff or for the defendant. Matt and Froggy really have no reason to be at that particular type of trial. See more »
The opening credits are seen in a sequence of dark skyscrapers. There are lit windows in the skyscrapers, which turn into Braille letters which then become English letters spelling out the main cast - later on, the supporting cast and production crew are directly formed in English from the window.

Forget the theatrical version, buy the director's cut DVD instead!
This review is for the Director's cut DVD of Daredevil. In all honesty, i liked the theatrical version of this movie. But now that i have seen the true version of this movie, the director's cut, i don't have any desire to watch the theatrical cut ever again. The director's cut is an improvement in every way. Everything makes sense now, and the characters are more fleshed out, which is a very good thing.
The DC is 30 minutes longer than the original cut, of which the new footage ranges from a whole new big subplot, and little things, that actually have more impact and and make the movie more understandable and better than you might imagine. The action scenes are way better also. The DC makes the movie into what it should've been in the first place before the studio screwed with it. I can't believe how much the studio hacked this movie up for theater..it is quite ridiculous. But now with the movie restored to it's original vision, i can fully enjoy it without the thought of something missing from it. In comparison, the only thing that the original DVD release has over this new DC DVD is it has a second bonus features/behind the scenes disc.
The DC DVD is one disc, and has a few movie trailers, a making-of featurette, and an all new audio commentary. Despite it's shortcomings in form of a second disc compared to it's counterpart, i'd choose the DC over the theatrical version any day. The DC is simply so much better. Forget what you know about the theatrical cut of the movie, and give this new DC version a chance..it is superior to the other version in every way. So give it a try, and i think you might be pleasantly surprised. Even those of you who hate the original cut.
My vote, in comparison: Theatrical version- 5.5 Director's cut version- 9.5
In closing, i'd like to thank the Director, the film editors, and everyone else who made this wonderful Director's cut DVD possible. I love the new version, and it's nice to see the Director's vision restored to this movie after nearly 1 1/2 years. Two thumbs up! R.I.P. Daredevil theatrical version!!
