Continuity mistake: When the train driver passes out, several (speeded-up) shots of the tunnel and the shots of the bystanders on the platform show that the train is moving really fast, but in between there's a shot of Lois at normal speed, and the lights of the tunnel seen through the windows show that the train speed is quite low.

Continuity mistake: One of the general shots in the subway shows Superman flying slower than usual and inches away from the bystanders. The problem is that their coats and hair don't flutter nor do they notice him passing by or seem nervous in any way. However, the next close shot of their faces show them nervous and in awe at the action.
