    And here’s something extra-special about Daredevil. Yes, he’s blind, but his superpower is a “radar sense” that functions a lot like 360-degree sight. Plus, his other senses are heightened to an extreme.

    What does this mean? It means that Daredevil is a character who has to *act blind* while actually being fully aware of his surroundings, moreso than sighted people. So the actor they choose has to be able to act like he is acting blind. Which presents a different, yet equally interesting set of challenges and story options.

    I can easily see a montage where young Matt Murdock makes a lot of the same mistakes that previous “blind” characters make while he’s coming to grips with his powers, and having to learn how to do it right, so to speak.

    So out of curiosity, how did Audrey Hepburn do in Wait Until Dark? I know she spent a lot of time in schools for the blind doing research but that’s all I’ve heard…
