The Baywatch film was in development for over a decade before filming began in 2016. The several writers who helped contribute to the screenplay included Jay Scherick, David Ronn, Jeremy Garelick, Brian Gatewood, Alessandro Tanaka, Peter Tolan, Robert Gen Garant, Thomas Lennon, Justin Malen, Damian Shannon, and Mark Swift. Of the eleven, only Scherick, Ronn, Garant, Lennon, Shannon, and Swift were given writing credits. Garelick was also originally set to direct before Garant & Lennon were brought onboard, then Sean Anders & John Morris replaced them, and finally, Seth Gordon was hired as director.

The Falcon set piece from Ant-Man was written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, who went uncredited in the finished film. Markus & McFeely also wrote the three Captain America films and the upcoming third and fourth Avengers films, and provided uncredited script polishing on Guardians of the Galaxy.

Unproduced Firefly episodes:

- Alan Tudyk, who played Wash, had an idea for an episode about a planet that's always day on one side and night on the other. On the night side, Jayne (Adam Baldwin) accidentally spills a pheromone on himself and the crew, which attracts a species of dogs that chases them back to the ship Serenity. There, River (Summer Glau) uses her mind powers to domesticate the dogs.

- Adam Baldwin wanted to make an episode in which Jayne goes up against Mal (Nathan Fillion) as the captain of his own ship.

- Series writer and producer Tim Minear revealed that the secret of Inara's (Morena Baccarin) syringe, as seen in the pilot episode, is that she's infected with a deadly disease. There would've been an episode where she's gangraped by Reavers, but because she injected herself with the syringe, all the Reavers on the ship die.

- According to Nathan Fillion, there was an episode in which the crew land on a dying planet. The inhabitants try to steal Serenity, after they explain to the crew about their need to get off the planet. The problem is that unless they were to run into another ship along the way, with the extra passengers, Serenity wouldn't have enough fuel and oxygen to make it to the closest destination. While everyone else is asleep, Mal takes the ship himself and discovers that help never would've arrived.

Confirmed to be the cinematographer of the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp is frequent Brett Ratner and Michael Mann collaborator Dante Spinotti. This would be the second film he served as D.P. on to be based on a Marvel comics property following 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, which Ratner directed.

Billy Russotti's transformation into Jigsaw in Punisher: War Zone was written and conceived by Kurt Sutter, creator of Sons of Anarchy. That was the only aspect of Sutter's draft that stayed in the final shooting script, which was credited to Nick Santora, Art Marcum & Matt Holloway in the finished film.

Two of the writers of the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, previously wrote The LEGO Batman Movie and episodes of the TV series Community. Several episodes of Community were directed by Anthony & Joe Russo, who directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, and McKenna provided uncredited contributions to Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely's screenplay for The Winter Soldier by adding humor.
