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.Written by
Vin Diesel was considering playing the part of Daredevil, but opted for The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) instead. Ironically, in that film, his character, "Riddick", possesses visual enhancements. Diesel would later go onto playing Groot, another Marvel character in the Guardians of the Galaxy film series, part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 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.

German theatrical version was edited for violence (ca. 1 min.) to secure a more commercial "Not under 12" rating. Shortened were the scenes where Bullseye kills the man in the pub, the lady on the plane and Elektras father. Also shortened was the stabbing of Elektra. The cut version was released on VHS and DVD (single-disc version), the uncut version was released only on DVD (two-disc special edition and re-release of the single-disc version). See more »

Directors cut so much better.
When I heard about a directors cut to this movie I never imagined it would be so much better than the original release. Why must movie studios always feel they know better than the director. This film would have been much more successful had they left it alone, but by insisting on so many cuts and changes they shot themselves in the foot. All because they wanted a family friendly spider-man type film instead of the much more dark and violent world of daredevil. Every scene added to the film makes you wonder why they cut it in the first place. It isn't just about adding scenes though they have taken a couple out too. I can't imagine anyone who would miss the fireside love scene. I urge everyone who saw the theatrical cut to watch the directors cut. It isn't a perfect film but it's a more complete and enjoyable one. Also watch the documentary on the directors cut DVD and see one of the producers trying to defend the original release and then actually saying he thinks it is the better cut. I think he must be more blind than Matt Murdock!!!
