Below you'll find some general information about movies the character Daredevil has appeared or starred in. You'll also find links to the entries at the Internet Movie Database for any of the movies or DVDs below that have entries there. The Internet Movie Database is a truly wonderful site for any information you might want on movies, actors, actresses, etc. I highly recommend bookmarking their site for future use!

Daredevil DVD Elektra's father wants out of crime. The Kingpin hires Bullseye to kill both Elektra and her father. Elektra becomes more and more involved with Matt Murdock. Bullseye kills Elektra's father, but makes it look like Daredevil did it. Daredevil and Elektra fight. Bullseye and Elektra fight. Bullseye and Daredevil fight. Daredevil and the Kingpin fight.
While the movie is fun, the amount of "extras" packed into this 2 disc set puts most DVDs to shame. The only thing missing is a director's cut with a lot of the deleted scenes added back in, but there are rumors that may come within a year or so down the road.

Daredevil vs. Spider-Man DVD I'm not exactly sure why the title is Daredevil "VERSUS" Spider-Man since they're actually helping each other out...probably just a sales gimmick. Anyway, this DVD collects most of the DD appearances in cartoons so far plus a 1966 Spidey episode and a special Soapbox by Stan Lee. While not officially rated, I think it would have a G rating. Also, I'm not sure which features the VHS version doesn't include.
The Spider-Man, Animated Series episodes were also collected in the Spider-Man: Sins of the Father video (listed below on this page). For more details on the Fantastic Four episode and the Spider-Man episodes, please check out the Media:Animation page.

Very brief cameo with Daredevil doing a flip to avoid Jay and Silent Bob. Apparently in the DVD he has a much longer cameo: a 2 minute fight scene with a bunch of thugs.

videotape Contents:
Season 3 - unknown number of episodes

I haven't been able to find any indication of this coming out on DVD as well. I'm also unsure as to exactly how many of the chapters from the Sins of the Fathers episodes were collected on this video. "Sins of the Fathers" apparently refers to all of season 3, which includes 14 episodes. By the amount of time listed for this video on one website, I'm assuming only 4 of the episodes are included. I'm not even sure if the Daredevil episodes are amongst them. I'm basically waiting for one of you well-informed fans to give me more information on this video! For more information on the two episodes that do feature Daredevil, please check out the Media:Animation page. Also note, four of the episodes were also collected in the Daredevil vs. Spider-Man collection mentioned above.

Trial of the Incredible Hulk: DVD-ROM - original screenplay
8 page booklet
"The Trial of the Incredible Hulk" (New World Television) originally aired 7 May 1989 and was later released on video.
Written by: Gerald DiPego (Death of the Inc. Hulk, Phenomenon)
Directed by: Bill Bixby
Hulk/David Banner: Lou Ferrigno/Bill Bixby
Daredevil/Matt Murdock: Rex Smith
Kingpin (Wilson Fisk): John Rhys-Davies (Sliders, Indiana Jones movies)

David Banner travels to New York where he inadvertantly becomes a witness to a mob hit. Unfortunately, the killers rough up David as well which gets him angry enough to change into the Hulk. During the fracas, a bystander is shot and David is put in custody as a witness when the police find him after he changes back. His lawyer is the blind Matt Murdock who tries to persuade him to testify in order to link the crime he witnessed to the mob boss Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin. To help in this case and protect his needed witness, Murdock stalks the night as Daredevil, a superhero who was blinded as a child by nuclear waste, but had his senses raised to superhuman sharpness along with a radar sense to compensate. Together the pair must find the evidence they need to bring down the Kingpin without the gangster doing the same to them.
(Summary from Internet Movie Database)
Rex and Ferrigno in costume
StreetHawk videotape Note: some of you may remember Rex Smith from his stint as "Streethawk" in 1985. He played a crimefighter on a superpowered motorcycle with Joe Regalbuto (Frank Fontana from Murphy Brown) as his tech expert buddy who designed the bike. His other credits include host of TV's Solid Gold for 2 years, a top ten hit (1979) with "You Take My Breath Away", and the lead in the film version of Pirates of Penzance (1983) opposite Linda Ronstadt, also starring Kevin Kline and Angela Lansbury. Smith was outstanding in Pirates of Penzance & continues to do stage/musical work. Personally, I enjoyed him in Streethawk as well. I always wished that Streethawk would have continued & Knight Rider would have bit the dust instead. Streethawk was much more believable, and the acting & scripts were better as well.
