During its development, many people speculated that Overlord was secretly the fourth entry in the Cloverfield franchise, despite initial J.J. Abrams later announced at the Paramount CinemaCon presentation on April 25, 2018, that the film would not be related to the Cloverfield universe and would instead be its own standalone film. Despite this, a handful of fans still theorize that Overlord may actually still be linked to the Cloverfield universe.

During the credits, a mock 1940s newsreel shows a United States flag with 50 stars when Jovan Adepo is credited as Boyce. The flag had only 48 stars from 1913 until 1960.
After the film was given the restricted R18+ rating in Australia, Paramount Pictures decided to edit out almost 1 minute of footage to lessen the violence for the cinema version. The subsequent re-submission got the film a more accessible MA15+ rating. Although this version never ended up getting released due to Paramount Pictures changing their minds to instead give the original R18+ rated cut to cinemas.
