Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning when Lois and Clark are walking out of the Daily Planet, Clark gets stuck in the revolving doors. But, look closely at the glass door, and you can see Richard Donner (confirmed in Superman expanded commentary) holding the door so that Christopher Reeve can get stuck.

Visible crew/equipment: When the cocoon cradle crashes and the Kents pull-over, lights and bulky object (camera?) are reflected on the driver's door, perfectly visible when he opens the door. Seconds later, rigs and filming equipment are visible on the fender.

Question: Why didn't Superman spin the world (and time) backwards enough to prevent the nuke from exploding in the first place? Wouldn't that have saved a lot more lives?

briggs

Answer: Just to clarify: Superman didn't spin the Earth backwards. We just see the world turning backwards when he went back in time. Of course this doesn't answer your question and it shows how difficult it is to write a good time travel story that doesn't leave the audience thinking of better ways to solve problems.

I guess the way they wrote it, Superman got to be the hero and also get the girl, not really too bad of an outcome.

briggs

Answer: Well yes. This is actually a perfect thing to submit for a Stupidity. Cause it's just bad writing all around.
