A few months ago fellow Viner Arcus1 got in contact with Chris Brewster (the man who does stunts for both Daredevil and Captain America) and asked him how Daredevil compares to other MCU fighters. While Chris didn't completely answer the question, he did confirm that Matt is intended to be one of the top martial artists in the MCU.
- Charlie Cox noted that Matt had improved his skills through his experience fighting The Hand in Season 2. Since Matt had a hard time tracking them, he was forced to "hone his skills and become better, stronger, faster than he has even been before."
