In the original script Taslima was explicitly a BrainlessBeauty (''"the face of a Persian princess...and basically has an IQ of around 50"'' as the script puts it.))
** The script originally ended differently. While Snake learned that the Plutoxin virus was a fake and Utopia is seized and sent to the electric chair, the President doesn't televise his threat to stop the Cuban incursion force headed to Miami. Malloy and the President pardon Snake and allow him to walk free, and he discovers the real prototype (having been thrown away by the President when he thought it was a decoy) and activates the world code. As the power goes out in the area, all of the gangs in L.A. besiege the security base and start to scale the wall, rescuing Utopia from the electric chair before attacking police officers. The film would have ended with Snake watching the carnage before RidingIntoTheSunset.

* DyeingForYourArt: Averted. It was expected that Creator/KurtRussell would have to work out or a new costume would have to be made for the actor because it had been 15 years since ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork''. As it turned out, Russell kept himself in such good shape that the original costume fit without needing any alterations.
