* How does Daredevil's staff bounce off walls as well as it does? It's made of ordinary metal, not science fiction metal like Captain America's shield.

* It's not his hometown, just a bar he happened to crash into. (I seriously doubt that bartenders in Ireland complain about 'Irish trash' in British accents, for one thing, and Movie Bullseye is Irish.) As for nobody trying to stop him from leaving... would ''you''? That's just volunteering to be the next guy to die.
** Okay, fair point about his nationality. I didn't really think about that. However, while I wouldn't try to ''stop'' him, per se, I would call the police as soon as he was gone. It wasn't exactly the perfect murder.

*** that doesn't make any sense as they will have a lot of witnesses to testify against him and kingpin won't be able to do anything

**** Yes he can. Witnesses can be bribed, intimidated or killed; evidence and testimonies can be tampered with or "misplaced"; detectives can be bought etc. There are so many ways for an all-powerful crime lord to make this go away it isn't even funny. It would be a pain, but it wouldn't be a problem.

** Its possible it was a civil suit, rather than a criminal trial. Given he was able to get away with it despite being pretty ObviouslyEvil, its possible that she wasn't able to get a criminal trial for his crime so she settled on suing him for the assault.

Added DiffLines:

* Is Matt Murdock a prosecutor or a defense attorney? In the start he's prosecuting the rapist, but he talks about having "clients", which so far as I know, prosecutors don't have. I guess he could do some consulting work, but that doesn't seem to jive with the talk about past clients who can't pay - while poor people might want to consult a prosecutor for advice, it sounds a lot more consistent with a defense attorney. And I don't think it's common to do both, since it would end up with conflicts of interest?

** There's a quick shot in Daredevil-Vision after Matt gets thrown against the window: it's jarring and blurry enough that he doesn't realize Kingpin is about to grab him until the guy's hand is right in front of his face. Presumably, filling the office with "rain" sharpened the image - as it were - and removed the disadvantage. Also, Kingpin waved the rose around and made a small speech about how unimportant he considered the killing of Daddy Murdock and Elektra - that was probably a factor too.

Added DiffLines:

* The climactic fight scene is set up so that the only reason Daredevil was able to turn things around was because he filled the Kingpin's penthouse office with water/rain. But why? He didn't have any problems detecting where the Kingpin was earlier in the fight, he simply got his ass kicked because the Kingpin was bigger, stronger, and less injured -- and none of those factors changed after it started raining in the room. Aside from RuleOfCool, there's no reason to explain why Daredevil bothered with the stunt or how it helped him.

** In a lot of movies like Daredevil, you kind of have to take an impressionistic view of scenes like that. What you ''actually'' see is one thing, which may or may not convey what they wanted very well.

**** He was prosecuting in an early scene in the film. Don't know about the comics, but within the film it's a more valid question.

* Early on, it's established that Matt can only sleep in a sensory deprivation tank because his powers make him extra-sensitive to sound. But after his sex scene with ComicBook/{{Elektra}}, we see him sleeping soundly in her bed with no difficulty. Then again, [[RuleOfSexy having Matt sleeping under silk sheets with a naked Jennifer Garner by his side]] is a lot more effective than [[RuleOfDrama having him alone in a cramped water tank]].
** Maybe the sex wore him out to the point where he was able to sleep soundly despite his sensitivity.
** They never said that he can ONLY sleep in the tank, just that he does so. Maybe he's capable of sleeping in a normal bed but finds it much less comfortable.
** Here's one for the entire Daredevil franchise - resorting to vigilantism is an obvious a TakeThat at the corrupt justice system, but in a different context it makes Matt Murdock look like a pretty crappy lawyer...
*** Or simply a noble lawyer who has the odds stacked against him. Remember, the crooks Matt attempts to prosecute are often ''very'' well-connected, and seem to be able to buy off the judges/juries very frequently. Thus, up against a justice system that's been perverted, Matt Murdock ''has no choice'' but to use his abilities for vigilantism if he expects to see justice done.
*** This is actually brought up after he's been outed during Bendis' run. It's said that he'd get in huge trouble for all the times he interfered with his own cases.
*** Matt's a defense attorney, not a prosecutor. He's the guy who defends people accused of a crime in court. And he generally seems to work lawsuit cases more often than criminal defense cases. So his being a super hero has nothing to do with him seeking justice against criminals he failed to put away in court. That's not what his job is.
