The Crow: City of Angels

Trivia: The original version of the script actually revolved around Sarah being killed and returning to life as a female "Crow."

Trivia: The film as originally intended was longer and more violent, had a non-linear narrative and a much darker ending. The studio forced director Tim Pope to re-edit the film to follow a structure more akin to the first film in order to capitalize on its success and also made him delete a number of key scenes. This lead to he and writer David Goyer disowning the film. The original workprint of the film that represented Pope and Goyer's vision was well over two hours long, as compared to the theatrical cut's anemic 84 minute run-time.

Trivia: The first piece of graffiti Ashe runs past when he returns to his work shop says "Wings", kind of fitting given his resurrection was due to a Crow. Also Sarah has wings tattooed on her back.

Trivia: In one early draft of the script, Judah would use his newly-found powers in the end to resurrect the villains Top-Dollar and Grage from the original film to use as henchmen. This idea was subsequently dropped.
