More Movie Taglines:
  • Down these mean streets a man must come. A hero born, murdered, and born again.

  • I'm gonna kill you all kinds of dead.
  • Face my power.

Movie Trivia:
  • 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.
