* FocusGroupEnding: Infamously so, ruining most of the {{Foreshadowing}} and creating a few {{Plot Hole}}s. Originally, the ending was much closer to the novel it was based on, with [[spoiler:Neville realizing that the infected are intelligent, and just want to take back the flock member he has in his captivity in order to test his cure. A shocked Neville allows them to do this, after which the infected leaves without causing further trouble. The event leads Neville to ponder the implications of how he has been carrying out his research into finding a cure, and realizes that in the eyes of the infected, ''he'' [[HeelRealization is the monster]], as to them he is some strange creature who is abducting and killing them for seemingly no reason at all]]. In the final version of the ending [[spoiler:the intelligence of the infected is just implied, but ultimately ignored, and Neville makes a HeroicSacrifice to help the others escape with his cure]]. The original ending was eventually included as bonus material on the DVD, where it was named the "controversial" ending.

* DifferentWorldDifferentMovies: A billboard in the abandoned Times Square has a ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman'' logo. A "World's Finest" or Batman Vs. Superman film was in talks at the same time as this film, but fell through, so this reference was all we got...[[http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=106748 until 2015, that is]].

* EvilStoleMyFaith: When Anna speculates that her coming to New York to find Neville is some part of God's plan, Robert launches into a furious tirade that given everything he's seen since KV got loose, there can be no God.
-->'''Robert Neville''': God's plan?! All right, let me tell you about your God's plan. There were 6 billion people on Earth when the infection hit. KV had a 90 percent kill rate; that's 5.4 billion people dead. Crashed and bled out, ''dead''. Less than 1 percent immunity, that left 12 million healthy people like you, me and Ethan. The other 588 million turned into your Darkseekers, and then they got hungry, and they killed and fed on everybody. ''Everybody!'' Every single person that you or I has ever known is '''''DEAD!!!!''''' Dead! There is no God! There is no God.
