Written by Mark Steven Johnson. Starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, and Colin Farrell. This film tells the origin story of Marvel Comic's Daredevil and his alter ego, Matt Murdock, (played by Ben Affleck). The story begins as young orphaned Murdock is struck by apparent tragedy as he is blinded by toxic waste as a young child. Miraculously the accident gives Matt a superhuman sense of his surroundings despite his complete vision loss. His day job is a criminal defense attorney but by night he prowls criminals as The Daredevil. While Matt Murdock may lose some cases in the courtroom, his personification of The Daredevil allows justice to be served to the criminals that seemingly escape the law.
Daredevil’s greatest nemesis is a villain known as The Kingpin (Michael Clark Duncan). The Kingpin hires an Assassin namedBullseye (Colin Farrell) who never misses his target to take out The Daredevil and his love interest Elektra (Jennifer Garner). Daredevil must work with Elektra to defeat their foes.
