** When the movie was in production at Cannon, before he feud and split of Golan-Globus, Creator/MichaelWinner (director of the first three ''Film/DeathWish'' movies) was slated to direct. When he dropped out and Golan-Globus split, John Stockwell would direct before being replaced by final director Albert Pyun.
** Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger and Creator/DolphLundgren were considered to play Cap. Arnie's accent cost him the role and Lundgren was busy filming ''Film/{{The Punisher|1989}}''.
** According to the documentary on the Blu-Ray, Cap was originally intended to be played by two different people: one pre-transformation and one post-transformation. Matt Salinger was hired to play Steve pre-transformation, and Howie Long was considered to play him post-transformation. However, it was later decided that one actor should play both, and Salinger played both roles.
