SUPERMAN II was a notoriously troubled production, as was SUPERMAN – THE MOVIE. The relationship between director Richard Donner and the producers had broken down so badly during production that, despite 75% of the sequel already being shot, Donner was replaced by director Richard Lester. As a result, SUPERMAN II, as released theatrically in 1980, was far from a seamless sequel, with wild ranges in tone (thanks to radically different styles from the two directors), a partially dubbed Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman refused to loop his lines after Donner was fired) and a lack of John Williams. Ken Thorne replaced the latter for the score.

Yet, the movie still turned out pretty well thanks to Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel, Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, and a trio of unforgettable villains, led by Terence Stamp as General Zod. In this episode of DC Films Revisited, we dig into the troubled production of SUPERMAN II and the eventual completion of SUPERMAN II: THE RICHARD DONNER CUT.

Which cut do you prefer? The theatrical or Donner’s? Let us know in the comments!
