As a child Matt Murdock was blinded by a chemical spill in a freak accident. Instead of limiting him it gave him superhuman senses that enabled him to see the world in a unique and powerful way. Now he uses these powers to deliver justice, not only as a lawyer in his own law firm, but also as vigilante at night, stalking the streets of Hell's Kitchen as Daredevil, the man without fear.

Both original showrunner/developer Drew Goddard and showrunner Steven S. DeKnight were writers for Mutant Enemy, production company of Joss Whedon. Both Goddard and DeKnight wrote for Whedon's shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) and its spinoff, Angel (1999). All three were, as of 2015, developing Marvel properties; Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), the since canceled The Sinister Six and Daredevil (2015) for Whedon, Goddard, and DeKnight, respectively. Daredevil and The Avengers are property of Marvel Studios and exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) while The Sinister Six is a spinoff of Sony's abandoned The Amazing Spider-Man series. Because of the deal made between the two studios on February 2nd, 2015, Spider-Man is now able to be included in the MCU, as seen in 2016's Captain America: Civil War. Whedon, Goddard, and DeKnight are now, again, contributing to the same intellectual property. See more »
Throughout the series, when adult Matt is shown reading, he moves both index fingertips across the page at the same time. A blind person places the left index fingertip at the edge of the line and keeps it stationary, to hold the place. Otherwise, the right index fingertip (which is the one that moves across the line of Braille) might not return to the start of the next line properly (it might get "lost" and skip a line or start one that had already been read). Child Matt does this more correctly than Adult Matt does. See more »
Didn't really have any expectations for Daredevil. After watching the movie as a kid and not overly enjoying it, I think Marvel has done an amazing job now that they have Daredevil back in their control. I love how mature it is compared to the other movies/shows Marvel have been doing in the MCU. The dark tone and violence they have incorporated will please a lot of people that have been wanting to see that from Marvel (me included). The cast and the writing are excellent and I look forward to possible appearances by other characters that Daredevil has either worked with or fought against in the comics. Very excited to see what else Marvel can produce with their characters that have yet to hit the screen.
