Superman II

Continuity mistake: As Ursa goes to sit at the table in town, she starts to put her elbow on the table. After the cut, she starts to do it again.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: As Non lifts the car to get the shotgun, the front of the undercarriage has a pile of dirt it, possibly to hide the lifting device.

Movie Nut

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

Continuity mistake: The kid fell backwards off the ledge and down toward the falls, but the distance shot he's face down rather than face up. It's also easy to see that it's a dummy because the hair color is different, as well as the body structure and limb movements are all wrong for a human.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: After the Cosmonaut settles in front of Zod, there is nothing reflected in the visor if the helmet. A second later, after looking at Zod from the human's point of view, Zod and the moon buggy are reflected, even though the Cosmonaut didn't move the helmet.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: The Cosmonaut Zod meets first pulls at his supply line. As he does, if you look closely the black wire used to make the hose move is visible.

Movie Nut

Other mistake: As Lois goes to climb under the lift, the one support she climbs over is bowed down a bit, whereas the others are straight, as if there were more than one take done.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: In a close-up shot of the kid falling into the falls, one can notice the kid is just a dummy. Notice how his face is a lot paler than it was before. (00:39:35)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: During the Marlboro truck scene, a woman with a violet dress and curly hair is inside her car laughing at the fight. This lady appears in almost every single angle of the flying sewers scene with no continuity at all: sometimes standing, sometimes falling, other times somewhere opposite to where she was before.

Continuity mistake: The hole which Non and Superman go through is square, and smooth inside. A frame later, from a different angle, its side is covered in bulky rocks and it's rounded.

Sacha Premium member

Revealing mistake: The hole that Non and Superman go through is already patched, as it's a different colour from the rest of the pavement (either from previous takes or to allow the effect).

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: Right after Ursa cries "Superman" and is about to throw the sewer lid at him, a man with a white jacket and a big afro runs from right to left and hides behind her. When the angle changes, he is on the very far right side of the street, many meters away, running towards Ursa, repeating all previous movements.

Sacha Premium member

Revealing mistake: During the Marlboro truck scene, Zod's stunt double has very noticeably longer, darker and bulkier hair, plus a thicker beard.

Sacha Premium member

Revealing mistake: After coming out of the Marlboro truck, Superman grabs Zod by his feet. When he sends him flying away, Zod's been replaced by an obvious doll.

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Zod is trying to heat up the truck's gas tank, while Superman tries to cool it the number of cars around changes dramatically, with no order whatsoever.

Continuity mistake: During the big street fight, Ursa grabs a flag pole. It is either in the shadows or lit, depending on the angle.

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: During the street fight, after the sewer lid scene, Zod lands on a car with his legs next to each other. A frame later they're spread apart.

Sacha Premium member

Revealing mistake: In the first scene when the villains are at the console, you can see Ursa's nose disappear, then reappear when Non walks behind her, then it disappears again. (01:44:30)

Repo_Man

General Zod: Why do you say this to me, when you know that I will kill you for it?

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.
