** The blond haired boy stood next to Angel at the school, the one who Tim Messenger suggests wears Angel's hat, is called [[MeaningfulName Gabriel]] and he originally had his own plot and backstory. He would have been the grandson of Tom Weaver, the man behind the extensive surveillance system, and the 'leader' of the hoodies that Angel recruits later on in the film.
** Angel actually had a love interest in the first draft of the script, called Victoria. However she was cut, [[HoYay and most of her lines were given to Danny, with little to no changes.
