Darkman III: Die Darkman Die

Trivia: This was originally supposed to be the sequel to the first Darkman movie. When Larry Drake said he would like to appear as Durant, Die Darkman Die became the third film with the second film being Darkman 2: The Return of Durant.

Trivia: Was filmed back-to-back with "Darkman II" over a two-month period in 1993. The two films were put on hold after filming until the studio could find a proper release-window. Later on, "Darkman II" was finally completed and released in 1995, while this third film was released one year later.

Trivia: Bradford May, who directed both "Darkman" sequels, originally planned to return to direct more films in the franchise after the second and third films performed well on home-video. And indeed scripts were written for both a "Darkman IV" and a "Darkman V." But after a change in leadership at Universal, plans for any future films were scrapped as the company wanted to shift focus onto other projects. According to a 2017 commentary track with May, there was an endgame planned for the series, and the final film would have concluded with main character Dr. Peyton Westlake perfecting his liquid skin and returning to society after years of exile.


Continuity mistake: When the industrial plant explodes at the end of the film, as Peyton and Angela/Jenny escape, in the wide shots you can see the flames are so big, that they actually set the actors on fire. However, in closer shots, not only are the actors not on fire, but the explosions are much smaller.
