Synopsis: A man blinded by toxic waste which also enhanced his remaining senses fights crime as an acrobatic martial arts superhero.

Reaction: The characters a bit bland and some of the effects are sub-par. But it can scratch an itch, though.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Jennifer Garner wore green contact lenses over her brown eyes for her role as Elektra.
  • In the comics, the Kingpin is white, but in the movie he is played by African-American Michael Clarke Duncan. The studio was convinced to use Duncan after several white wrestlers gave poor screen tests.
  • Jolene Blalock and Neve Campbell were considered for the role of Elektra.
  • Make-up artists gave David Keith a more pronounced brow, a broken nose and a cauliflower ear to suggest his boxing past.
  • When Daredevil's cane is being examined in the morgue, it's a digital creation as the real prop was delivered in the wrong colour.
  • Matt and Elektra's playground fight took four days to shoot.
  • Ben Affleck was virtually blind as he had to wear heavy-duty contact lenses which blocked out most of his vision.
  • Ben Affleck was cast as Daredevil because Kevin Smith suggested him to the director, Mark Steven Johnson.
  • Vin Diesel was approached for the role of Bullseye, later given to Colin Farrell. Other contenders for the role of Daredevil were Matt Damon, Edward Norton and Guy Pearce.
  • The character Elektra was created for the Daredevil comic book by writer/artist Frank Miller.
