Continuity mistake: When Daredevil kicks Bullseye off his motorcycle, Bullseye has nothing in his hands when he's flying through the air, but when he lands he's holding Daredevil's baton. Watch closely when Daredevil's kick connects, and you can see they never even come close enough for Bullseye to grab the baton, or for him to snatch it if it was dropped. (00:59:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the subway you see a clock counting down to the next train, at about 01:55. When we cut to the other end of the station though (instantly, because Daredevil's still coming down the stairs), the timer reads 01:35. (00:24:40)

Continuity mistake: When Matt enters his office, his secretary is holding the invitation with 'Saturday, July 24 at 8 p.m.' on it. When Matt wakes up from his night with Elektra, however, the invitation he has reads 'Wednesday, August 13 at 7 p.m.'. (00:44:40 - 00:51:50)

Continuity mistake: When Elecktra and Daredevil are fighting on the roof, Daredevil is stabbed with a sai by Elektra. After she stabs him there is blood on the window as he slides down it, yet there is no blood on the sai. The blood does not appear until Elektra holds it to his neck.

Continuity mistake: When young Matt is taking a shortcut home and he sees his father beating up a man, he runs away. While he is running, he drops his report card. When we first see him, he is riding his skateboard and not holding anything. [This scene is actually edited from a much longer scene (it is included on the 2004 Director's Cut DVD). Matt was looking for his father at a construction site near the school, and learning he wasn't there, Matt drops his report card into the puddle. This is why, later, he is shown running away with only his skateboard. Still a mistake, but there's why.]

Continuity mistake: When young Matt is beating up the kids, he sends one of the kids crashing into a wall and falling on top of some garbage bags. When it cuts to Matt kicking the last kid, we can see the other kid has suddenly disappeared from the garbage bags. (00:13:00)


Continuity mistake: When young Matt finds his dad passed out in front of the television you can see he is sitting up straight in the chair. When it cuts he has sunken down in the chair. (00:06:00)

Continuity mistake: When Electra and Matt are fighting in the playground, Electra throws her jacket on the ground and during the scene the jacket moves around.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene where the reporter sees DD on a rooftop and bidding him "Good Luck", DD then runs away the next shot shows him jumping off a building. It's very high but the previous shot only showed him on top of a 3-5 storey building.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where you see Daredevil entering his apartment from the roof, when he takes off his mask his eyes are brown, with no sign of his blindness at all.

Continuity mistake: In the sex scene, during one of the first few shots you can see the fireplace, and it is on Ben's right. During the last shot, as they move the camera up to view the fireplace, the fire is on Ben's left.

Continuity mistake: When Bullseye stabs Elektra it cuts to a view where you can see the sai go into her stomach and out her back. Then they go to a close up of Elektra's face to show the agonizing pain she is feeling. When they zoom back out, Bullseye still has the sai pressed up against her belly, but yet it's not sticking out of her back. Then he finally pulls the sai out of her stomach.


Continuity mistake: In the first church scene when Daredevil drops to the church floor, his cane falls to the floor immediately afterwards. However, towards the end of the flashback sequence when he falls to the floor, his cane never hits the ground, though it is given ample time to do so.

Continuity mistake: In the first cafe scene right before Elektra comes in, Matt's partner hands him mustard instead of honey. While squirting the mustard, some drips off the container and onto the lip of the mug, but when Matt switches the mugs, it's gone.
