Daredevil Season 2 is now out on Netflix. To commemorate, we got our house specialist to present 10 fun facts about “the man without fear” that you probably didn’t know.
1. Other actors played him?
Yes, he was played before by no more no less than Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale and Ben Affleck!
2. Quentin Tarantino doesn’t like him: “not a very interesting character”
In an interview to French magazine Les Inrockuptibles,Tarantino declared: He is “not a very interesting character. For any actor. There is simply not much to play. I think Michael Keaton did it the best, and I wish good luck to Ben Affleck.“
3. He was inspired by da Vinci’s work
Leonardo is not only one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, he also designed the man without fear, wings and all.
4. I might be talking about Batman, not Daredevil
C’mon, Ben Affleck played both! And they are moody, dark, and live in the same city. I mean, they both live in cities that look alike. I mean… nevermind.
5. It was an honest mistake: bats are also blind
Have you ever heard the expression “blind as a bat”?
6. Should I keep going?
I now realize I know more about Batman. I only know shit about Batman. Did you know he has a butler? And he has a beef with Superman. Or was it the Punisher? He defenetly has a batcave, and a batcar, and a batrang!
7. Why did you let me go this far?
If you knew I was talking about Batman, why did you let me keep going on and on about it? Even worst: why are you still reading it?
8. I will stop at eight
I guess enough is enough. I was talking about Batman, I am sorry. There is no reason to keep it up. Also, ending here will prove that my editor does not read my shit. Fuck him!
