With the Charlie Cox Daredevil appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Matt Murdock and the Netflix show moving to Disney+, fans have buzzed about the man Without Fear more than ever. And one fan debate pit Daredevil and Saul Goodman from Better Call Saul against each other in the courtroom. And the debates began about who’s the better lawyer, Matt Murdock or Saul Goodman?
The case for Saul Goodman in the ‘Daredevil’ vs ‘Better Call Saul’ debate
Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) is a crooked Albuquerque lawyer. His past as a scam artist allows him to operate in the organized crime world while representing criminals. And with Better Call Saul Season 6 on the horizon, he has plenty of experience, too.
One scenario imagines Goodman defending Uncle Ben’s killer, while Daredevil seeks justice for Spider-Man and the Parker family.
Several fans say that Goodman would defeat Matt Murdock in the courtroom. Saul Goodman’s ability to bend and break the rules puts Daredevil at a disadvantage because he stays within legal bounds.
“Murdock might become wise of Saul’s shenanigans; however, Saul knows the right people and how to cover his tracks, so unless Murdock uses his less than traditional investigation methods, I doubt he’d figure it out,” One Redditor noted.
The post also states that neither Daredevil nor Spider-Man interfere in the case. The Marvel heroes often conduct some extra investigations outside of the courtroom to win, which puts Goodman at an even better advantage.
The case for Daredevil in the Matt Murdock vs Saul Goodman debate
More than one fan post has popped up over the years, pitting the two lawyers against each other. And when Netflix showed Daredevil (Charlie Cox) at his law firm, it sparked even more debates.
Other fans want to know who the better lawyer between Daredevil’s Matt Murdock and Better Call Saul’s Saul Goodman is in general.
Due to his heightened senses, Daredevil can tell when someone lies, something Saul Goodman doesn’t know. One Redditor asks if “Matt can detect lies by listening to heartbeats, would he be able to bend the rules and more aggressively cross-examine witnesses?”
Another fan stated that Daredevil knows his ways around law better than Goodman. When dealing with enemies like the Wilson Fisk Kingpin, Matt Murdock has gone against criminals before.
The verdict on the Marvel and the ‘Breaking Bad’ lawyers
Weighing all the evidence, fans believe that Saul Goodman could squeak out a win. Since he has no problem bending and breaking the law, it creates extra hurdles for the Marvel hero.
However, some refuse to budge, as Daredevil has heightened abilities over Saul Goodman. He could use them while speaking with witnesses.
Unfortunately, fans will probably never have an official answer. Unless Doctor Strange really jumps across universes in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, fans can only debate if Daredevil or Saul Goodman is the better lawyer.
