Trivia

SPOILER WARNING!

Early in the game in the Lucky's Bar level, you hear some mobsters talk about Daredevil, asking who would win in a fight between The Punisher and Daredevil. One of the mobsters replies that such a thing is not possible, because Daredevil is a comic book character.

Much later on in the game, when you play in the Fisk Industries level, you can hear an enemy something along the lines of "Daredevil never did this to us!" when The Punisher shows up; much later on, you see Matt Murdock (Daredevil's secret identity) try to defend The Punisher when he's being interrogated by the police in a cutscene. Seems like the writers didn't make up their minds on deciding if the game exists in the normal Marvel universe or outside of it.
