Trivia

Max sometimes wears a white glove or a black glove on his left hand, depending on the scene. In the comics, this is because Max is actually two agents who are twins; however in the film it's because of a nasty scar on his hand.
Andy Diggle and Jock, the creators of the "The Losers" comic, were brought in by Sylvain White to work on the film.
Director Sylvain White was attracted by the realistic nature of the comic to do the film: "What appealed to me about The Losers was that it wasn't the typical superhero-with-superpowers thing. It was based on real characters-realistic characters - and based in reality, like a lot of the European graphic novels that I had grown up reading."
This is the first Dark Castle film without a R-rating.
When Jensen unlocks Max's hard drive, the code that comes up on screen is actually the source code of the web page for ordering a trial version of MathCore, a program for compiling mathematica functions.

Production designer Aaron Osborne and cinematographer Scott Kevan attempted to enhance the color scheme of the comics, where only two to three colors were used to convey the tone of each setting, so they charted the whole movie with certain color schemes for each location and different shades as time passed("Every chapter of the comic books is a new environment distinguished by different color palettes - so every time we are in a new city or country, the aesthetic of the film changes completely, so there is no homogeneous look. It's very eclectic.").

Originally Tim Story was to direct, citing influences from the war drama Black Hawk Down (2001) and the television miniseries Band of Brothers (2001): "I was looking for a film that would have edge, but I wanted to keep the tongue-and-cheek, where the characters have a little fun with each other." He was later replaced with Sylvain White.
