Fight at the docks. Midnight, decently well lit. Start at 30 feet apart. Conex storage/shipping containers to one side, docks to the other. Batman at his physical prime. No vehicles for Bruce.

Who takes it?

Nice. Im so excited for this show. Daredevil is going to wreck.

Batman was all about the movies which were really great, but it lacked good fights.

Im already going to go on the record as saying Daredevil wrecks with ease.

Daredevil seems significantly faster and more agile, but he doesn't win... yet.

Batman has literally no fighting feats in the Nolan films....

and I think it's kinda early to judge Daredevil as he will likely have better fights as the show progresses.

one episode in, and daredevil takes the cake. the guy they got for choreography was incredible, and the stunt double for daredevil was insanely fast. Everything was just so damn brutal and efficient.

Nolan Batman was slow and clunky in comparison. His body armor could help him out but Daredevil batons should be able to do some damage to the cowl and give DD an opening. Can Bats even hit him?

Daredevil, faster, more brutal, the only edge that Bruce has is durability, but Bats won't be able to hit DD so it doesn't mater

I can't wait to see the show!!! It looks great and should provide some good fights. As for the battle, DD takes it. Nolan Bats was not a good fighter.

From what I can tell, Daredevil's strongest attributes are going to be his insane clairvoyance, agility, reaction speed, accuracy, and sheer willpower. He likely won't have superhuman strength, durability etc, so he's more grounded in that way. He's also shown to be highly skilled so far (I'm on episode 2). Can't judge this accurately until I finish the season but.. presuming Matt is going to improve a lot from now by the end of Season 1, this should be a pretty stellar fight.

Haven't seen the entire season yet but Matt has been extremely impressive so far. His 3D perception of the environment could work insanely well against Bruce's stealth. He also seems to be faster seeing as how he dodged gunfire in the open and with his back turned as opposed to Bats dodging bullets in the dark.

Bruce seems to be stronger and more durable though ( due to his armor). IIRC, he one shot KO'd multiple people and fell from a skyscraper unharmed while Matt was stunned from a significantly shorter fall.

9 episodes in. DD wins solidly. I would put him as the most skilled street leveler in MCU so far. Cap could win because of enhancements but dd is a beast. Great show by the way

Edit- winter soldier could probably take him also.

Could go either way. Batman could win with strength, durability and versatility, DD could win with speed and agility. I think Batman would win more often that not though. He really is a lot tougher and has fought better people than Matt. Matt is not at all untouchable despite his speed, and batman easily has the power to out him down.

Great fight! I think Batman takes the majority, he has the speed to tag DD but he'll have trouble with his agility.

Based on episode 1, I'd give it to Batman. I'll come back to this if I change my mind. As soon as Matt gets some damn striking feats. All though on another note he seems damn accurate with the billy club.

That makes sense, rewatching the scene I didn't notice he picked it up. That might make the feat more impressive IMO.

The further I get in the series the more I side with batman. Matt was getting tired during his fights and had trouble subduing a group of seven or so guys. Batman has taken on larger groups than that with much greater speed, despite him being slower than daredevil. Batman hits harder, is a great deal tougher, and didn't struggle with random guys like Matt did. The random guys that Matt struggles with would be fodder for Batman. He took way too long to beat the Russians. His fighting style is cooler but it appears to be less effective than Batman's. If he had trouble hurting thugs with his hits he probably won't hurt Batman in his suit of armor all that much

SPOILERS FOR IF YOU HAVEN'T FINISHED

what stage is daredevil at in this match? Has he got his early episode man in the black suit or the end season, proper Daredevil costume?

If its the former, i'd say its Batman although it'll be a very long fight and a close match. Bruces armour is gonna be tough for daredevil to handle, considering that daredevils punches won't do too much damage and that matt had a lot of difficulty with beating Kingpin because of Kingpin's armour. I know matt was also severely injured during that fight but it was clear that he knew he wasn't good enough to go toe to toe with him because he needed to find the guy who made Fisk's armour, and had some difficulty even with his daredevil suit on.

Based on Batman's final fight with Bane, Bruce should just pull through in the end because his suit's durability should be enough to allow him to take a beating until matt gets tired, allowing him to take advantage and throw a flurry of punches and kicks - punches and kicks that hit incredibly hard. Even before matt's tired, Bruce has just enough speed to throw in a couple hits, each punch making significant damage. Daredevil has the speed but does not have the strength to make too much damage to Bruce with a punch. None the less, with matt's endurance/willpower, superior fighting skill and speed, plus his heightened senses that allow him to sense where each punch goes, the fight's gonna be long and bloody on both sides. In the end, The Dark Knight might win, but only just - he'll be exhausted as fuck and beaten to a pulp.

If we're talking Matt's end season armoured Daredevil suit with his billy clubs, i'd say it'd be a win for Matt 7/10. He'll have the sufficient strength with the billyclyubs to make serious damage to Batman and even if he loses them in the fight, the gloves will add strength to his punches. Matt retains the speed and agility that he has with the man in the black costume allowing him to maximise his skill plus added durability from the armour, evening out Batman's durability advantage + softening Batman's hit damage. However, i'd say Bruce is still tougher than Daredevil and his strength, skill and durability should keep daredevil on his toes.

Going with Bruce. So far I haven't seen anything impressive from Matt.

Matt and Bruce are evenly skilled, but Bruce has a huge stats advantage.

Remember he was injured and weaker in the fight with the russians. He had stab wounds, a punctured lung, a concussion and broken ribs. And if we're being precise, there were 9 guys. In other scenes where he'd fight a group of men, he'd mop the floor with them. The fight with the russians if anything proved his willpower and endurance. His fighting style is way more effective than Batman's because he has much more freedom of movement as opposed to The Dark Knight who's much slower and more stiff in his suit. I'd agree that Batman wins with daredevil in his man in the black costume but it's a lot closer than your making it out to be.
