Trivia: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

  • Actor Allusion:
    • Dana Delany delivers the line "He laughs!" exactly as she did in Tombstone.
    • While it's purely casual, in the Finnish dub Joker says that the Phantom looks like Darth Vader. Coincidence ?
  • Box Office Bomb: Due to a lack of advertising, the movie bombed hard during its theatrical run. This didn't last forever, though, as a certain trope to be seen below indicates...
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
    • The woman at the party who shouts, "Brucie, where are you?" off camera is Arleen Sorkin, voice of Harley Quinn.
    • Salvatore Valestra is voiced by Abe Vigoda.
    • Andrea's VA, Dana Delany, would go on to play Lois Lane in Superman: The Animated Series. Indeed, it was this performance that got her the role of Lois Lane.
    • Chuckie Sol is voiced by Dick Miller, a regular in films directed by Roger Corman and Joe Dante.
  • Reality Subtext: Andrea is named after Andrea Romano, the voice casting director for the series. The entire romance plot came about because of Kevin Conroy ad-libbing an "Oh! Andrea" after a series of grunts. It was originally intended to be Batman getting punched, but the ad-lib made it sound a little different.
  • Spoiled by the Merchandise: Kenner's figure of the titular villain revealed that "he" was actually Andrea Beaumont, Bruce Wayne's Love Interest.
  • Vindicated by Cable: The movie turned a huge profit when available on VHS, earning millions more than it did while in theaters.
  • The fighting style Bruce was shown practicing was very close to Taekwondo, despite him calling it "Jui Jitsu". The move Andrea performed on him, however, was from Jui Jitsu.
