Dumpster Bros is a trope that originated in the MCU's Daredevil fandom. It originates from a headcanon in which Matt Murdock and Clint Barton become bros after being thrown in the same dumpster in Hell's Kitchen.

This trope was probably influenced by the fact that both Matt Murdock as Daredevil was thrown into a dumpster in the new series,[1] from which he was rescued by Claire Temple, while Clint Barton of the comics was also thrown into a dumpster.[2]
