* GenreKiller: The failure of both this film and ''Film/{{Elektra}}'' was a major reason that studios became so skittish about female superhero movies. Of course, this has resulted in numerous accusations that it was just being used as a cheap excuse, acting like their both being such awful movies couldn't be a factor in no one wanting to see them. It took the [[Film/DCExtendedUniverse DCEU]]'s ''Film/{{Wonder Woman|2017}}'' more than a decade later to eventually prove that a female-led superhero movie can succeed critically and financially.

** The film was originally a {{spinoff}} from ''Film/BatmanReturns'', and would have followed Selena (intended to be played once again by Creator/MichellePfeiffer) as she supposedly took on a new enemy during a stay at a resort. The script was written by Daniel Waters and completed in 1995 (ironically, on the same day ''Film/BatmanForever'' was released), but both Creator/TimBurton and Pfeiffer dropped out soon after and the film was stuck in DevelopmentHell for years.

** Originally, "Outrageous" from Britney Spears was supposed to be the single from the movie. However, Britney injured her knee while filming the video. With no video to promote the single, they instead used "Scandalous."

* CreatorKiller: This film killed whatever hopes its director, Pitof, might've had of breaking into American cinema as a frontline director.
