Daredevil

Trivia: The forensic specialist who shows Daredevil's baton to Ben Urich has the name "Kirby." This is a reference to a famous comic book artist. The specialist is also played by Kevin Smith, comic afficionado and creator of Clerks and Dogma, among others.

Trivia: For a number of years, a sequel was considered, with director Mark Steven Johnson and star Ben Affleck expected to return. Kingpin actor Michael Clarke Duncan also expressed an interest in playing his character again. However, the sequel never materialized, in part due to the failure of the spin-off film "Elektra", and in part because Affleck had decided he didn't want to do another big-budget superhero film at the time.

Trivia: Jon Favreau plays Matt's partner "Foggy" Nelson. Favreau would later go on to work on another Marvel property, directing both "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2", in addition to playing the small role of Iron Man's bodyguard "Happy Hogan."

Trivia: The film was in production around the same time as 2002's "Spider-Man." "Daredevil" was supposed to be a more modestly budgeted film aimed at a more adult audience, and was given a (relatively small by action-movie standards) $50 million budget. When "Spider-Man" came out and was a massive hit, the studio gave the "Daredevil" production an additional $30 million to make the film bigger and more bombastic in order to compete with Spidey's release.

Trivia: The original cut of the film was rejected by the studio, who wanted a trimmed down version of the movie for theaters. This resulted in a theatrical film that was notably tame in comparison to some of the comic storylines that inspired it, and had some noticeable gaps in flow and logic. A few years later, an R-rated Director's Cut of the film was released on DVD that restored a half-hour of deleted scenes and had a harsher tone. The Director's Cut was better received by critics and fans than the the original theatrical edition, and when the film was finally released on Blu-Ray, the Director's Cut became the only version of the film released on the format.
