* DisownedAdaptation: Creator/AlanMoore, who's already notoriously stingy about adaptations of his work, hated the film so much that he demanded his name be left off of all future ones. It should be noted that Moore was initially okay with the film until legal issues cropped up over the film's similarity to an unproduced screenplay. The fact that the studio settled the lawsuit rather than allow Moore to defend himself ultimately led to him removing his name from any adaptations of his works.

* DeletedRole: A character named Eva Draper (Winter Ave Zoli), the daughter of German scientist Karl Draper, was removed during editing but remained in some of the promotional material. Eva had appeared in two scenes: one ended up on the cutting room floor, and she was digitally replaced with a different character in the other. A brief fight scene featuring Tom Sawyer and the replacement character was rotoscoped into the film. The deleted scenes which feature Draper appear on the DVD.
