A [[Film/{{Daredevil}} Daredevil film]] was released in 2003, starring Creator/BenAffleck and Creator/JenniferGarner, but despite being one of the most faithful comic-to-screen adaptations ever made -- it lifted whole scenes and even entire chunks of dialogue from Miller's run -- and some strong (if [[RaceLift idiosyncratic]]) casting, it was a critical failure, in no small part due to being a vehicle for [[Music/{{Evanescence}} nu-metal]] and having severe ExecutiveMeddling done to it; the director's cut is far better received. Some people prefer to believe that it [[FanonDiscontinuity never happened]], though many liked Colin Farrell as Bullseye and Creator/MichaelClarkeDuncan as Kingpin. Despite it making back more than double its budget at the box office, they did not do a direct sequel, but a spin-off starring Garner as ''Film/{{Elektra}}''. It didn't go over well. On a lighter note, Garner and Affleck (who met on the first film) later married in real life, have had three children, though in June of 2015 they announced that they were divorcing. As the film property's future, the rights have reverted to Marvel.

WouldHitAGirl: Daredevil keeps having to tangle with female enemies at a remarkable frequency. He is GenreSavvy not to underestimate them due to gender. Especially when most of them are equally or more super-powered than he is.

Part of the reason for the character's relative lack of popularity may lie in the fact that, Bullseye, Elektra, The Hand, and The Kingpin (and possibly Mr. Fear and Mr. Hyde) aside, he has been lumbered with arguably the least impressive RoguesGallery in comics, including such threats to Western civilization as Shotgun (a guy with a gun), Ammo (a guy with ''lots'' of guns), The Jester (a bargain-bin [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Joker]] knockoff), The Owl (a gang boss who can fly -- v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y), the Matador (whose entire gimmick revolves around [[ShootingSuperman making you unable to see him]] [[note]]keep in mind that Daredevil '''is ''blind''''' and his other senses are extremely sharp, making invisibility useless against him[[/note]]), Leap Frog (who is a man in a frog suit who's able to jump [[InASingleBound very high]]), and Stilt-Man (who unfortunately is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin just what he sounds like]]). Luckily, in recent years the writers have been working to remedy this (see Echo, Purple Man, Bushwhacker, Gladiator, Bullet, Nuke and Typhoid Mary). Keep in mind that some of these villains were merely RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap. Purple Man, Bullseye and Gladiator were created before Frank Miller took over the title but subsequently managed to become much more threatening in later years. Even Owl is now one of Daredevil's most dangerous rogues thanks to him being given an extra dose of NightmareFuel, while MarkWaid has actually made Jester a relevant antagonist with his current take on the character.

** SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} was not all that impressed with Daredevil on hearing about his first meeting with (the girl who would become) Typhoid Mary.

* RealityEnsues: Lampshaded by DD himself when receiving a house call from a horde of Yakuza Mooks. He notes that when somebody is serious about wanting you dead, they wont bother with fancy comstumes and theatrical Supervillain schemes. They will simply show up on your doorstep at odd hours and shoot you. However, that plan does not turn out quite as well as expected (see OneManArmy).

** ... as well as any weapon of opportunity he comes across. Although not as elaborate as [[UpToEleven Bullseye]], Matt does tend to weaponize most stuff that isnt nailed down at one point or another. Whether it be trash cans, coins, traffic signs, government issue mailboxes, pool ques, couches, free weights or [[GrievousHarmWithABody unfortunate opponents]].

* NINJA: A major part of Frank Miller's makeover of the series consisted of turning Matt into this trope, as well as using it as a reoccuring theme.


Added DiffLines:

* FragileSpeedster: his standing habit of taking on opponents far above his own weight class makes Daredevil this trope. He tends to prevail through his formidable agility, speed and fighting skill... and its usually by the skin of his teeth.

* OneManArmy: most famously shown when the Yakuza send 100 mooks to Matts adress, decked out with guns, swords and nearly half of them being hopped up on an imitation of the Super Soldier Serum. It does not end well... for the Mooks.
