** Before the Netflix show, there had been several attempts at a Daredevil TV show. In the 70's there was a pitch for a live-action series starring Daredevil and Comicbook/BlackWidow, but it wasn't picked up. In 1985, Creator/{{ABC}} was on board to air to air an animated series featuring Daredevil and a guide dog named Lightning, but a dispute with someone at Marvel led to it being dropped. In 1999, FoxKids was approached about an animated series, but it was pushed back to air alongside a potential live-action movie that was never made.

** The original intention was for the film to be more realistic action instead of the WireFu and CG-laden RoofHopping. While in production, the hype of ''Film/SpiderMan'' with its big action sequences had them rework the fight scenes to be comparable.

** Averted with Writer[=/=]Director Mark Steven Johnson - you would ''expect'' him to dislike the theatrical cut of the film due to ExecutiveMeddling that left an entire subplot on the cutting room floor, but on the ''Daredevil: Director's Cut'' DVD, he states that whilst he likes someone of the scenes added to the theatrical cut, he feels the Director's Cut was a superior film due to keeping various elements cut from the original release.
