Matt/Clint is a slash pairing of Matt Murdock and Clint Barton from the Marvel and Daredevil (TV series) fandoms.


The characters share some panel time in the comics but they have yet to interact in any live-action adaptation.

The earliest Matt/Clint fanfic on AO3 is dated 14 Apr 2015. The emergence of the pairing is presumably related to the Dumpster Bros phenomenon. The fandom favors the comics version of Clint Barton (especially Fraction Hawkeye) to the MCU version.

Popular Fanon Tropes

  • Crack: A lot of fanwork copy the tone of the Dumpster Bros trope which is fairly cracky and ridiculous.
  • Disability fic: Since both characters are disabled in canon (Matt being blind and Clint being deaf), disability often comes up in fic.
  • Hurt/comfort
