** The original draft of the first film [[http://gulfnews.com/life-style/celebrity/hollywood/julia-stiles-gave-up-her-adult-life-to-jason-bourne-1.1871485 would have seen Nicky die]] by having her thrown against a wall and breaking her neck. The scene was recut to have her live so that she could appear in a sequel, which she did.

Added DiffLines:

** In the latest film, unless Alicia Vikander's character is older than she is, the audience is being forced to believe that a 27-year-old could have a high-ranking position in the CIA. Her demands at the end of the film to be put in an even higher ranked position highlight this.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Aside from being Creator/MattDamon's most famous role, Nicky is Julia Stiles, the Professor is Clive Owen, Kirill is [[Film/StarTrek Bones]] & [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Éomer]], Kim is [[Film/MissionImpossible Ethan Hunt's fiance]] and Marie is [[Film/RunLolaRun Lola]].
** [[Series/TheShield Walton]] [[Series/{{Justified}} Goggins]] has a bit role in the first as one of the members working at Treadstone HQ.
** [[Creator/JeremyRenner Hawk]][[ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} eye]] is Aaron Cross.
** Albert Finney, AKA Daddy Oliver Warbucks from Annie 1982, as Hirsch in ''Ultimatum''.
** [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Celeborn]] is Jarda.
** [[Film/{{Gladiator}} Quintus]] is Marshall.
** How can [[Film/{{Predators}} Hanzo]] beat a Predator? He's actually a LARX agent!
** You'd think [[Creator/EdwardNorton Eric Byer]] would know not to assume a target is dead without witnessing it firsthand...it's not like he hasn't [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk pulled the same trick himself.]]
** Australians and foreign cinema buffs from elsewhere will recognise Shane Jacobson as Mackie in ''Legacy''.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/BradPitt turned down the role of Jason Bourne.
** Creator/CliveOwen was the sniper assassin towards the end of the first movie. In the lead up to ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' he was one of the people in the running for the role of Film/JamesBond, which would have made this movie just a little funnier in hindsight. Still, you can always imagine it was either [[Film/ShootEmUp Smith]] or [[Film/TheInternational Salinger]].

* SleeperHit: The first film. It had tested horribly and Universal delayed it for a year to do reshoots. When it opened, it was expected to die a quick death against ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' and ''{{Windtalkers}}''. However, reviews and word-of-mouth turned out to be quite positive and it managed to gross over $100 million at the box office.
