Fridge / Daredevil


Fridge Brilliance

  • Daredevil being one of the few secret identity possessing superheroes to be successfully "outed" makes sense as he's also one of the few heroes who maintains an active love life. Quite a few of Matt's girlfriends knew his secret identity and he was far less cautious about it than Spider-Man.
  • Being a costumed crime fighter who dresses like the Devil makes sense with Matt's Catholic faith the same way that movie Batman's fear of bats allows him to be Batman.
  • The Masochism Tango between Wilson Fisk and Daredevil in the comics is almost every bit as personal as well as hate-filled as the Joker versus Batman or Spider-Man and Norman Osbourne. This is actually because the two are The Determinator. Spider-Man doesn't hate the Kingpin, No-Holds-Barred Beatdown in prison aside, because he's just another criminal. The Kingpin represents everything wrong in Matt's world and corruption in general (plus the whole Daredevil: Born Again business). The Kingpin has found a man he can't break in Murdock and who keeps coming despite all his efforts to destroy him. It's the immovable object versus the irresitable force that will only end when one of them is dead.

  • It seems weird that Murdock turned his stereo all the way up when he was getting ready in the morning. With his sensitive ears, wouldn't that hurt? But he sees via sound. He wasn't just putting on music to wake himself up, he was effectively turning on the lights.
    • Matt also uses loud noises as a way to concentrate, oddly enough. He's constantly hearing everything so one single noise drowning out the others is preferable.
  • One of the accepted flaws in the film is the soundtrack which promoted groups and was very loud during the whole movie leaving little to no moments of silence. It's actually a device to make you feel a little like the character in a world full of disturbing sounds.
