Salma Hayek, Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Helena Bonham Carter, Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence were all considered to play the role of Ava Lord before Eva Green was cast.

Two of the film's four segments are based on Sin City comics: 'A Dame To Kill For' which ran six and 'Just Another Saturday Night' which ran for one. Both comics feature Marv (Mickey Rourke) in a lead role.

Three of the film's four segments - 'Just Another Saturday Night', 'A Dame To Kill For' and 'The Long, Bad Night' are prequels to the first film.

During the seven year gap in between the first film's release and the beginning of principal photography on the second film, Brittany Murphy and Michael Clarke Duncan passed away, forcing Robert Rodriguez to recast their respective roles of Shellie and Manute (Dennis Haysbert). Due to Devon Aoki's pregnancy at the start of production, the character of Miho was also recast, with Jamie Chung replacing Aoki. Jeremy Piven also ended up replacing Michael Madsen as Bob.

The lead role was originally offered to Johnny Depp but he declined due to scheduling conflicts. Joseph Gordon-Levitt later replaced him and chose to star in the movie despite offers to star in other movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Godzilla. Back in 2006 when Rodriguez first starting putting together ideas for a Sin City sequel, he considered Depp for the part of Wallace - the lead character of 'Hell And Back' which he was hoping to adapt as one of the film's three segments. The idea to adapt Hell and Back was scrapped though & Rodriguez chose to adapt 'Just Another Saturday Night', 'A Dame to Kill for' and the never published 'The Long, Bad Night'.

The film's fourth segment is an original story that takes place the night after Hartigan commits suicide in 'That Yellow Bastard'. It stars Nancy (Jessica Alba), who's quest to clear Hartigan's name has her team up with Marv (Mickey Rourke).

Dwight McCarthy, played by Clive Owen in the original Sin City, is now played by Josh Brolin before the plastic surgery to change his face that Shellie (Brittany Murphy) mentions in the first movie.
