Screenwriter Alan B. McElroy was hired to write the script for the film because New Line Cinema liked one of his unproduced scripts titled Bat Out Of Hell, which McElroy said was about "a guy who escapes from Hell and the devil sends three badass bounty hunters after him". They liked the tone of this script which was very similar to the one that Spawn had. Around the same time he was working on the script for Spawn, McElroy was also working on changing one of his other unproduced scripts Tears of the Sun into fourth Die Hard film which was ultimately cancelled (although title was used for another Bruce Willis film from 2003), and the first version of the script for Resident Evil (2002), however he was later replaced by George Romero, who was then replaced by other writers before Paul W.S. Anderson's script was chosen for the film. See more »
The white border on the 'necro-armor' appears to change in the film. When it first appears, the borders appear to have an extended hook. During the rooftop scene on the cathedral, it appears the hooks have gone, and the angles are merely cornered. See more »
The battle between Heaven and Hell has waged eternal, their armies fueled by souls harvested on Earth. The devil, Malebolgia, has sent a lieutenant to Earth to recruit men who will turn the world into a place of death in exchange for wealth and power, a place that will provide enough souls to complete his army and allow Armageddon to begin. All the Dark Lord needs now is a great soldier, someone who can lead his hordes to the gates of Heaven and burn them down.

At the end of the film is a 30-minute interview with the creator Todd McFarlane and a Behind the Scenes of Spawn show that was first aired on the Sci-Fi Network. See more »
Everyone seems to agree that the original Spawn comic is excellent material for a pointless, violent, stupid and thoroughly amusing movie. This movie, however....It isn't all that violent (if you compare it to the comic book), but it is stupid and utterly pointless. Amusing? It could have been if they had inserted a prolonged torture scene of John Leguizamos Clown character: one of the most un-funny, irritating and tacky "comic relief" characters ever to have (dis)graced the screen. Move over Chris Tucker and Pauly Shore - we have a new candidate for overrated quasi-comedian of the decade. The special effects were kind of confusing - half of them were excellent and half of them looked like beautified Sesame Street animations (the demon "thing" of hell, for example, which had me crying with laughter). Let's hope for the next Spawn movie they take a few chances and make a grittier downbeat tale with more in common with the original comic and not like the muppet show from hell.
