More Movie Taglines:
- Down these mean streets a man must come. A hero born, murdered, and born again.
- My city screams. She is my lover. And I am her spirit.
- I'm gonna kill you all kinds of dead.
- Face my power.
- He's something the world needs...
- Ebony White, The Spirit's sidekick from the comics, was omitted, largely because he was typically portrayed as a 1930's racial stereotype. Frank Miller disliked the idea of The Spirit having a sidekick, so the character was completely removed, rather than updated.
The character, Morgenstern, the name means "morningstar" in German.
Frank Miller uses comic book authors as company names in the film, for example 'Feiffer'. Another (Ditko, a reference to Steve Ditko) appears on the side of the truck driven by Silken Floss.
When the Spirit finds Sand Serif's derrière photocopy and says, "You shouldn't have signed it", the phrase was from one of Frank Miller's early Daredevil comics.
Some scenes where shot using a new digital camera called The Phantom that can shoot at up to 1000 frames a second. Most of the film was shot with Panavision Genesis cameras.
