Continuity mistake: When the elevator falls down the shaft with Lois trapped underneath, Superman flies up to rescue her. He stops the elevator, and when he does, Lois climbs off from the bottom of the elevator and runs to hug him. Problem is, when she climbed off the bottom of the elevator, there should have been nothing but air underneath her.K.C. Sierra
Continuity mistake: When the villains are trapped in the phantom zone (filmed by Richard Donner) Zod, Non and Ursa (from left to right) are tightly pressed against a glass. When the elevator explodes and are about to be released (filmed by Richard Lester) not only are they not pressed, but neither in line, having changed positions (and looks, as already listed): Non now stands above Zod and Ursa.Sacha
Continuity mistake: When Ursa says to the Cosmonaut "What kind of creature are you?" her whole body is facing forward. He responds "Just a man" and in the next shot of her, her body has turned left. Then when she goes to grab his patch her body is facing forward again.
