*** Not to mention fans of Mark Waid's run may go down as the LighterAndSofter run of the series were disappointed to see a return to a DarkerAndEdgier tone, uprooting a relatively stable life for Matt in exchange for more tragedy and brooding.

** Mark Waid's run, while it was well received critically and seen as a breath of fresh air for Matt, many longtime Daredevil fans ''loathed'' the changes Waid made, as they felt the lighter tone fit other heroes better than Matt. Many aspects of the run-the snarkier Matt, the storyline dealing with the Sons of the Serpent, the reveal of his identity, Foggy's cancer subplot, and several others are simultaniously beloved for their handling by some and hated for being ill-fitting for Daredevil.

Added DiffLines:

* FoeYayShipping: There was fanfiction set in the film's world (after ''Elektra'') that ships Elektra with Bullseye despite the fact, or because, [[spoiler:he murdered her father and her]].

Added DiffLines:

* LoveToHate: Colin Farrell's portrayal as Bullseye is a murderous, perverted and gleefully destructive Irish Ham... one many enjoy in both the Theatrical and Director's Cuts.

** Mark Waid's run may go down as the most controversial ''Daredevil'' run since Ann Nocenti- while it was well received critically and seen as a breath of fresh air for Matt, many longtime Daredevil fans ''loathed'' the changes Waid made- in particular Matt's more snarky, flippant attitude that suited the Flash more than Daredevil, Matt becoming a BoringInvincibleHero who was never really challenged throughout most of his run, the absolutely joke that was the Serpent Society, Matt's complete disregard for his secret identity, the Foggy subplot, and, most contentiously of all, ''the pimp suit'' Matt wore as a costume for much of the run after ditching his usual gear.

* CriticalDissonance: Waid's run was well received critically, but was met with a more mixed reception commercially, this showed as the run at times struggled to maintain higher sales than runs before him such as Bendis and was rarely on the Top 50.


Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, the scene where Matt and Kristen first say 'I love you' to one-another plays out very similarly to how Wally and Linda first did so, with the hero accidentally saying it, only to decide instantly they ''mean'' it and exchange flirty banter with their girlfriend until they admit it as well.

** Besides ComicBook/TheKingpin, Daredevilís ArchEnemy is [[PsychoForHire Bullseye]]. One of the world's most talented, famous and feared [[ProfessionalKiller assassins]], Bullseye has revealed he rarely spends the money from his assassinations, preferring to kill [[ForTheEvulz because of the fun involved]]. Bullseye led a string of murders and assassinations that culminated in the death of his nemesis Daredevil's lover Elektra. Consumed with hatred after being defeated by Daredevil, Bullseye made it a mission to murder any of Daredevil's friends or loved ones, including his later girlfriend Karen Page. After Bullseye was [[BackFromTheDead killed by Daredevil and revived]], he was rendered a paralyzed invalid in a metal case. In retaliation, Bullseye recruited several killers to his cause and began a systematic campaign to drive Matt insane by threatening the lives of his friends, lovers, ex-wife and anyone he held dear, proving that even being a [[EvilCripple cripple does nothing to stop his evil]] or his willingness and ability to destroy whatever Matt loves. When recruited by ComicBook/NormanOsborn, Bullseye took advantage of his position on the Dark Avengers to torment and kill innocents on a whim. Combining {{sadis|t}}m with [[ItsAllAboutMe twisted narcissism]] and LackOfEmpathy for anyone, Bullseye sets the standards of evil for hitmen in the Marvel-verse and serves as an inspiration to many of its killers and monsters.

** Purple Man (aka Zebediah Killgrave) might not have the most intimidating moniker, but he more than makes up for it with what he does. During his first outing he took control of Matt's girlfriend, Karen Page, and tried to rape her. He's only gotten worse since. Later on, revamped by Creator/BrianMichaelBendis in his series ''ComicBook/{{Alias}}'' into an amoral sociopath, Killgrave defeated the young superheroine Jessica Jones and made her his mental slave, forcing her to watch him commit crimes and assist him, while he heaped physical, verbal and mental abuse on her, but stopped short of outright rape because she "wasn't worthy" of him. Not content with humiliating her, he forced her to watch him do things like mentally order people to stop breathing when it annoyed him. He forced Jessica to stand at his bedside and watch as he used his powers to [[SerialRapist date rape women]], helpless to do anything about it. Killgrave is what happens when you give someone who thinks ItsAllAboutMe is a code to live by, remove any empathy for other beings, and give them mind control powers and a serious desire to hurt others.

* BetterOnDVD: The director's cut is far preferred over the theatrical cut.

to:

* BetterOnDVD: The director's cut is film's reception markedly improved with the release of the Director's Cut, which restored 30 minutes of footage, including an entire missing subplot, and placed emphasis on aspects of Daredevil's character that went underrepresented in theaters, particularly his Catholicism and his skills as a lawyer. As a result, the movie gained far preferred over more defenders than it did the first time around, and has effectively replaced the theatrical cut.cut as the definitive version, with Fox not even bothering to bring the original to Blu-ray.



** All-American Jennifer Garner as a Greek? Indian-American Erick Avari as her father? Huh? At least Micheal Clarke Duncan as the Kingpin makes sense: regardless of skin color, he's ''huge'' and [[ScaryBlackMan intimidating]], and that's what's important.
