The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Comic What Could Have Been: In one interview, Alan Moore said that he originally considered having Irene Adler lead the team, but ultimately settled on Mina Harker instead because he worried that Adler was too obscure.
Creator Killer: Director Stephen Norrington had such a bad experience making the film that he announced he would never direct another movie. So far, he hasn't.
Even worse, Sean Connery became so disenchanted with the moviemaking process with this film that afterwards he announced his retirement, except for some voiceover work.
Fan Nickname: Posters abbreviated the title to "LXG," causing certain derisive fans of the comic to call the movie "The League of EXTREME Gentlemen."
Hey, It's That Guy!: Sean Connery is acting as a Parental Substitute to Landon Carter, as they join forces with Thomas Button, Nikita, Lestat de Lioncourt, Vincent Van Gogh, and Naseeruddin Shah. Oh, and the guy who hired them is Count Dracula.
That Duke also has the distinction of playing both Moriarty and his own nemesis in the same year.
