Continuity mistake: After Zod grabs the cop's rifle, a close-up shows the rifle's butt close to the policeman, which is inconsistent with the next shot where the villains are seen many meters away.

Continuity mistake: Under the elevator when Lois says "Nobel prize" her fingers are completely black, covered in grease. When she starts to say "lil' o" they're just slightly dirty. When Superman saves her they're spotless.

Continuity mistake: Non attacks the guard, who activates an alarm on his belt. In the wide angle all of his left hand is on the alarm, on the close-up only the index finger. This keeps swapping back and forth.

Continuity mistake: When Superman brings the flag to the White House, the wide shot shows the wind stopping, and the flag coming to a smooth stop. Immediately after, in the close-up, the flag is moving wildly.

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?

Continuity mistake: When Clark is lying beaten up on the diner floor, a man in a brown suit next to him disappears.

Continuity mistake: Before the villains arrive at the Daily Planet, Lois's hair is fluffy and her fringe has a straight cut. When the scene ends, her hair is shorter, and her fringe has some stylish cuts.

Revealing mistake: When Ursa kicks the astronaut into space, she takes a step back and looks upwards. When this happens you can tell that the film is being shown at double speed. Also, when Clark spins the guy on the chair at the end of the film, he snaps back upright far too quickly.

Continuity mistake: When Zod throws the shotgun after discharging it, it lands in front of the police car's back tyre. But when the dumb one goes to pick the gun up, it is now towards the back of the car.

Factual error: When the police car's light is thrown at the boy and it blows up, it shouldn't have happened. The most that would've happened was that the kid would've been knocked off his bike when hit with the light. There is no explosive device in the light, so it shouldn't have exploded in the least like it did.

Other mistake: In the long shot of the Niagara Falls scene, the kid's right arm is way too long.

Revealing mistake: The 3 villains break through the Daily Planet window and fly around the city. Before Zod stops by a beam, Non becomes transparent.

General Zod: I win. I always win. Is there no-one on this planet to even challenge me?

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.

Jason Hoffman

Answer: I think people put too much emphasis on that kiss as some kind of power. Think about what happens when you kiss someone. You know the expression to suck face? He is slowly but unintentionally sucking the air out of her lungs. That is why she becomes dizzy and almost thanks. When the weed comes in she is finally starting to breathe normally the reason why people think that she forgot Superman a daddy at Clark, is because she asked a question what we talkin about. If you think about it logically, how would kissing her make her forget that information? I mean, if he kissed her too long could she possibly forget who she is?
