Star-Derailing Role: Linda Fiorentino was barely seen on the big screen ever since Dogma's commentary track revealed how hard it was to work with her.
What Could Have Been: An earlier version of the script available here features scenes of Jay and Silent Bob singing, as well as the second fight against Noman the Golgothan.
Kevin Smith found Linda Fiorentino so difficult to work with that he regretted not casting his first choice, Janeane Garofalo.
Kevin Smith also originally wanted to do a sequel, but since he mentioned it would touch on a belief system much less forgiving to jokes (Islam), he gave up on it, at least for now.
Azrael giving his take on Hell of being a place of eternal Heroic Self-Deprecation, making it a place of eternal suffering. This being bad for Fallen Angels, which is shown with Barneby, that being away from God is bad enough, but humanity's guilt in creating a hellhole drove them so insane that Azrael prefers oblivion than undergoing eternal Sanity Slippage.
However, it would've portrayed him as sympathetic and put the heroes into Designated Hero categories for killing him.
