Corrected entry: Marlon Brando was offered the opportunity to reprise his role as Jor-El from the first film, but he was unwilling to reprise his role for this film. As a result, we only see his hand at the beginning of Superman II, and we see only Superman's mom in the recap footage from Superman. Later in the movie, we only see Superman's mom in the crystal recordings for the same reason.
Corrected entry: Shortly after landing on Earth Ursa picks up a snake which bites her. In obvious pain (since she has never seen a snake and therefore would not expect a snakebite to hurt) - she throws the snake to the ground and lights it on fire with her eyes. However, once on Earth Ursa has the same powers as Superman and since a snake could not hurt Superman, why can it hurt her?
Corrected entry: After Clark Kent learns about Zod in the diner and after he was beaten up by that guy in the diner, he realizes that he must get his powers back. So, he walks all the way from the diner to the Fortress of Solitude, a distance of several thousand miles. With no food, no water, no transportation, no money, and just a coat, he manages to walk through miles of snow, ice, and freezing cold to get to the Fortress of Solitude. How does he do this? I don't think any human being could pull this off, and at this stage that's just what he is.
Corrected entry: During the scene in East Houston, Idaho, when the three phantom zone criminals are terrorizing the small town, there are several vehicles that are seen as random vehicles about town. Specifically there is a white 1970 Mustang hardtop, a blue 71 Mustang hardtop, a white 71 Mustang fastback, a red 1972 LTD and a brown and gold two-tone 1970 Javelin. Each of these vehicles is then later seen in the 'Metropolis' street scene when Superman is fighting the three criminals. In addition, the red LTD looks suspiciously like the red LTD that Lois drove in the finale of the first 'Superman' movie.
Corrected entry: When the H-bomb explodes in space, you can see the explosion happen behind the intact bomb, instead of originating from it.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, Clark Kent is hit by a taxi cab when crossing the street. The taxi cab is severely damaged in the front, but Clark keeps walking across the street. Look at the damage made on the cab. Where's the damage on Clark's suit or pants? The material used in his working suit must have been as strong as the material used in his Superman suit.
Corrected entry: Just after Lois grabs the branch in the river, she is upstream of the branch in one shot, and downstream the next. In these same two shots, the branch goes from being perpendicular to the water's flow to being parallel to it.
Corrected entry: It seems strange that it is business as usual when there are so many explosions, let alone it is night time and everyone is wearing business attire.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, Clark Kent is hit by a taxi cab when crossing the street. The taxi cub is severely damaged in the front, but Clark Kent keeps walking across the street. No one, except the taxi driver, seems to notice this ... not even Lois Lane. How is that possible?. (Later on in the movie, Lois doesn't even see the connection between this incident and the fact that Clark is Superman.)
Corrected entry: I always find it comical that Ursa reacts with pain when the snake bites her at the lake. The snake should've broken its teeth on Ursa, who would've felt nothing.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the Fortress of Solitude near the end, Lex Luthor mentions that Superman was safe in the chamber while the lights were on out of the chamber. How would he know, since Lois was the one to see Superman give up his powers for her by entering the chamber earlier in the movie?
Corrected entry: In the first film Clark had to spend twelve years honing his powers so he could use them properly. In this one the villains are released and manage to master them instantly.
Corrected entry: The kid that begs General Zod to "let my daddy down" is speaking with an obvious British accent, despite the fact that the scene is set in Idaho.
Corrected entry: when Clark saves Lois from drowning in the river he uses his laser vision, but he doesn't remove his glasses, so shouldn't his glasses have melted?
Corrected entry: Ms. Teschmacher comes to rescue Lex Luther and Otis from prison. That's okay, except that in the first movie, Lex accidentally shot a missile at Hackensack, New Jersey. When Ms. Teschmacher informs him that she has family in Hackensack, he just looks at his watch, shakes his head, and walks away. In other words, he doesn't care if her family lives or not. (That's why she saves Superman in part I.) Why, after the disloyalty of Lex, would she come back to rescue him from prison in Superman II?
Corrected entry: When fighting the villains at the Fortress of Solitude, Superman makes duplicates of himself that appear and disappear. He says that he likes this game, and used to play it as a boy. Since he was sent to Earth as a baby and there were none like him on Earth, who did he play it with?wizard_of_gore
