! Trivia for the film:

* ActorAllusion: It's not the first time Michael Massee (Armando) plays an henchman responsible for [[Film/TheCrow the main protgonist's Death who eventually comes back for vengeance.]]
* AllStarCast: Not that it ''helps'' in this particular movies case any...
* BoxOfficeBomb: It only brought back over $80 million of its over $100 million budget, making it a spectacularly expensive failure.
* CreatorKiller: This film has killed whatever hopes its director, Pitof, might've had of breaking into American cinema as a frontline director.
* GenreKiller: Along with ''{{Film/Elektra}}'', its failure thwarted the attempt by Hollywood to revitalize movies about female superheroes, or female action heroes in general, after films in the 80s wrecked their viability, and sent it back into hibernation for a long time. In fact, nearly a decade later, despite comic-book movies being on a massive popularity surge and fans chomping at the bit for a female superhero movie, the studios are still playing it very cagey. DC will have ComicBook/WonderWoman appear in two other movies before possibly getting her own. Marvel has no plans for a ComicBook/BlackWidow solo movie despite her multiple Cinematic Universe appearances and popularity with fans, and will not produce a female-led film until 2018, when the Carol Danvers version of [[ComicBook/CaptainMarVell Captain Marvel]] will make her film debut.
* OldShame: For Miss Berry in years to come:
-->''"First of all, I want to thank WarnerBros. Thank you for putting me in a piece of shit, God-awful movie[...] It was just what my career needed."''
** The context for that quote: She said it at the [[http://www.agonybooth.com/video328_Catwoman_2004_Halle_Berry.aspx Razzies]] as [[MedalOfDishonor she accepted her award for "Worst Actress"]]. The entire time, she was holding her Oscar for ''Monster's Ball'' in the other hand. Publicly reminding people that she is usually a good actress; the movie was just THAT bad. Razzies founder John Wilson even remarked that after seeing this, he expects Berry to run for the Oscar again.
* RecycledScript: As often noted on the web, bears a striking resemblance to ''Franchise/TheCrow''. In fact, the movie's first trailer was alleged to have the same narration script as ''Franchise/TheCrow'''s own trailer - only changing the respective animal.
** The romantic basketball game between Patience and the detective was lifted verbatim from ''Film/{{Daredevil}}''.
* StarDerailingRole: For Halle Berry, and it was also the beginning of the end for Sharon Stone's time in the upper tiers of stars.
* StillbornFranchise:
** Halle Berry signed for a sequel but after all the bad reviews, development on the sequel was quickly squashed. This also made her available for the third ''X-Men'' film; she rejoined that series, but allegedly got paid less for her role that go round.
** The film also managed the impressive feat of killing off an unrelated series before it could even really begin; a film starring Berry's ''Film/DieAnotherDay'' character Jinx had been in development for the previous two years, but the critical and commercial failure of this film killed that one too.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** 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.
** Ashley Judd was originally considered to play Patience, and the character's surname was originally ''Price''.
** An early draft of the script had Patience becoming Catwoman to avenge her mother's death.
** 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."
* This is the only superhero comic book movie to make it on to Creator/RogerEbert's [[RogerEbertMostHatedFilmList most hated list]].

!!Trivia for the comics:
* CreativeDifferences: Creator/EdBrubaker reportedly left his critically-acclaimed early-2000s run writing Catwoman's solo title in protest at the replacement of early artists like Cameron Stewart and Rick Burchett with the much more {{Fanservice}}-heavy work of Paul Gulacy. An interview in which Gulacy described Selina as "slutty" and the idea of her not being primarily a fanservice character as "absurd" may have been a final straw.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Selina Kyle/Catwoman is said to have been originally modeled on actress Hedy Lamarr.

!!Trivia for other media:
* HeyItsThatVoice: Creator/ElizaDushku does the work for Selina\Catwoman in the DC animated movies and shorts.
