Superman II

Audio problem: Before the trio crashed into the Daily Planet (just before the battle with Supes), they were heard flying outside the building. For 3 superbeings with the ability to fly unaided, they sure sound heckuva lot like jet-propelled aircrafts. Jet aircrafts are noisy because of their engines, but superpeople?

Audio problem: When the three villains fly after Superman, they all gather in a circle and one of them says "Wait there". It can't be Ursa because it is too deep and neither Zod's or Non's lips are moving so it is not them. So, who is it?

Audio problem: Trapped under the elevator, Lois says "Capital P" but she is not mouthing the word.

Audio problem: When the three villains blow to keep the people away, all of the voices of the people shouting (a man with a cigar, a KFC woman, two guys talking on the phone, among others) are not in sync with their mouths. Furthermore, sometimes their mouths are closed.

Audio problem: As Superman's mom speaks in the recording, the reflection immediately to the hologram's right appears slightly out of sync with the main image. Also, there's one word the image says that the reflection's mouth doesn't mimic.

Movie Nut

Audio problem: When the villains are trapped in the Phantom Zone glass Zod cries out something against Jor-El, but his mouth isn't in sync with what he says.

Audio problem: At the Eiffel Tower, after Lois asks the French officer if the terrorists have the proper equipment, his voice is heard but from a side view his mouth and jaw don't move.

Audio problem: When the villains blow the people back in Metropolis, all the ones near the KFC restaurant (the waitress, the guy in the phone booth and the couple) shout or make comments but their mouths either don't move or are not in synch.

Superman II mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: Ursa throws the sewer lid at Superman sending him flying backwards into the car windshield. Watch the sewer lid carefully when Superman actually hits the windshield. You can see that the sewer lid was actually attached to a belt around his waist so that it would stay in place for the shots where he is flying backward through the air. (01:39:50)

Trivia: Some of Gene Hackman's scenes were actually filmed with a body double. That's because Gene Hackman quit before all of his scenes were shot.

More trivia for Superman II

Question: At the end of the movie when Clark and Lois are talking to each other at the Daily Planet, Clark kisses Lois and she forgets that Clark is really Superman. How could that happen and why would Clark make Lois forget that he is Superman, since she promised not to tell anyone?

Answer: Superman was be able to kiss Lois in such a way that the heightened emotion wiped out her memory of his identity. To answer your second question, even though Lois promised not to tell anyone, Superman decided he does not want even her to know his secret identity.

Matty Blast

Answer: I don't agree that he didn't even want her to know because he struggled in the beginning of the first movie with telling her on the first date. He was about to tell her from the beginning who he was. I don't understand why he was breaking it off with her at the end of the second movie and erased her memory to help her get over him. This confusion continues when he develops a relationship with another woman in the third or fourth movie.

At the end of the movie, he realises her love for him is torturing her, so he decided to remove the memories to end her suffering. It works, too, because as soon as she forgets, she's back to her old, happy self.
