Matt Murdock is the titular protagonist of the 2003 film Daredevil.

Why He Rocks

  1. His costume is very accurate to the comics.
  2. Ben Affleck did a very respectful portrayal of a blind man.
  3. He is more proactive in the director's cut.
    • Both his superhero and legal life are shown in substantial detail.
  4. Matt is able to use his radar sense to attack enemies.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. The theatrical cut version of him is less proactive.


  • Ben Affleck regretted the theatrical cut of the film.
  • Before Affleck was cast, Vin Diesel, Edward Norton, Matt Damon and Guy Pearce were considered for the role.
