There was a novelization by Creator/JamesLuceno that valiantly tries to tie the movie into the pulps and radio series. The makers were hoping to start an entire new superhero film franchise but the film performed poorly at the box office and the franchise was stillborn.

* TheMerch: The movie received a Batman-esque toyline. Besides the usual Shadow variations, there was a Lamont Cranston/Shadow figure, two Shiwan Khan variants, a Mongol Warrior, and the voodoo-themed Dr. Mocquino. And, yes, the very cool taxicab was a part of the toyline, though it lacked a Moe Shrevnitz figure. The Shadow also got a Batmobile of his own, the Mirage SX-100.

* BlackAndGreyMorality: Lamont ''knows'' he's a bad person and struggles with his dark side (which he channels when he becomes The Shadow, who does bad things for good reasons), while Shiwan Khan is a brutal megalomaniac [[TakeOverTheWorld bent on total world domination]].
