Proof That "Daredevil" And "Game Of Thrones" Are Basically The Same Show

You'd have to be blind not to see it.

Posted on

Before we start it’s important to stress just how many spoilers there are for both “Daredevil” and “Game of Thrones.” Seriously if you aren’t caught up on both shows DO NOT READ. MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD.

That being said, let's get started!

1. The similarities being right away, with the shows' practically identical title sequences.

Here's the iconic opening sequence for Game of Thrones, buildings and landmarks are created from nothing, each possessing its own unique style and charm...

And here is the opening sequence of Daredevil, where buildings and landmarks are created from nothing and each has its own unique style and charm.

2. When the blind Matt Murdock senses the world around him, he sees everything in flames and on fire.

Netflix

Kinda reminds you of a certain Game of Thrones character doesn't it?

Yup. Melisandre, The Red Woman, Priestess to the Lord of Light and close advisor to Stannis Baratheon. She may not see everything on fire, but she sees everything in the fire.

HBO

3. Speaking of fire...

Netflix

Nobu died in a fiery blaze, just like Mance Rayder.

4. Let's take a look at that soft-spoken bald man that seems to know everything about everything.

Which soft spoken bald man who knows everything about everything, you ask? I'd tell you if I could tell them apart.

5. Remember that super badass fight between Daredevil and hitman John Healy at the end of episode three? That battle ended in a pretty memorable way…

Netflix

Healy was impaled with a giant piece of metal right through his face.

Hmmm, where else have we seen that? Maybe at the end of the incredibly similar and equally badass fight scene between Jon Snow and Karl Tanner in Game of Thrones?

HBO

6. Still not convinced? Let's look at when that gigantic monster of a man that crushes the skull of another living person in a fit of rage.

Which show does that refer too? Both. I'm talking about both shows. That exact thing happens in both Daredevil and Game Of Thrones.

Here's Wilson Fisk, a gigantic monster of a man crushing the skull of a Russian mobster:

Netflix

And here's The Mountain, another gigantic monster of a man crushing the skull of Oberyn Martell:

HBO

Sure, Fisk used a car door to get the job done, but he still straight up mushed a dudes face into pulp. If The Mountain had access to a car door he probably would have done the same thing.

So, lets review!

Similar characters? Check.

HBO

Similar title sequences? Check.

Netflix

Incredibly graphic violence, like a man impaling his face on a chunk of metal or a dude crushing someones head with their bare hands? Check.

HBO

Basically the exact same shows? Absolutely.

Fanboys: We're nothing if not consistent.
