This movie was originally simply called EXODUS, but it later received the subtitle GODS AND KINGS, because Twentieth Century Fox could not procure the rights for EXODUS alone from MGM, who owns the rights through the unrelated movie, EXODUS (1960).
In an interview with Esquire Magazine, Ridley Scott called religion "the biggest source of evil", explaining, "Everyone is tearing each other apart in the name of their personal god. And the irony is, by definition, they're probably worshiping the same god." In another interview, Scott claimed that being an agnostic was a good quality for directing a Biblical story "because I have to convince myself the story works."
In this movie, Joel Edgerton battles Christian Bale, who played Batman in THE DARK KNIGHT trilogy. In WARRIOR (2011), Joel Edgerton battles Tom Hardy who played Bane in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (2012).
