Curiosities:

  • This movie is known in South America as "El Hombre Sin Sombra" (The Man Without Shadow).

  • Bill Paxton was about to star in the movie. Paxton, was a close friend of Liam Neeson, told him about the audition. When Neeson got the part, Paxton became so angry that he did not speak to Neeson for months.

  • Sam Raimi wanted Bruce Cambell to star in the film, but the producers were not sure if the actor could be enough for such a role.

  • After the premiere of the film, a series based on the character of Darkman began to develop, but this one never came to fruition.

  • The story of the film was born in a short story by Raimi himself, in which he paid homage to the horror movies of the 1930 Universal.

  • Liam Neeeson worked 18 hours a day with ten pieces of makeup, but the actor was delighted with the idea of ​​acting under a mask and all the possibilities that this gave him. Neeson also loved Darkman's costume, especially the cape. The most difficult thing of all was talking with false teeth, because I did not want them to move.

  • Durant's finger fetish comes from Sam Raimi's idea that the character had a personal brand that alluded to a military background. This also explains his good performance with the grenade launcher when he shoots from the helicopter.

  • Raimi said that for the role of Darkman he wanted someone who could play a monster with the soul of a man, who could play under a lot of makeup. That finally opted for Liam Neeson is because the filmmaker saw in the actor the charisma of Gary Cooper.
