Other mistake: When Lenny has the prison guards locked in the car and is putting the top up, the steering wheel is spinning but the front wheels aren't moving. The amount of revolutions of the steering wheel is mechanically impossible also.

Continuity mistake: After Superman ducks the moon rock, there's a close-up of Nuclear Man's black boot stepping on Superman's boot, yet in the next angle, it's Nuclear Man who's yelling in pain. It should be Superman instead.

Continuity mistake: On the moon, Nuclear Man grabs a rock and dirt covers him totally, especially his armpit becomes black. A frame later, he's spotless.

Continuity mistake: When the volcano's lava floods the village, there's a wide shot of the mountains and the volcano and you can see that the lava is still running down the volcano, not near the village.

Revealing mistake: When the volcano erupts and lava floods the village. The red truck on the left is a very obvious scale model prop: The engine is missing and the hood is attached to the grilles.

Revealing mistake: When Nuclear Man melts the rifle, note that the SWAT member is holding the barrel and he slides his hand away slowly to make the barrel bend downwards. He was obviously holding it up. If he had burned himself he would've moved faster.

Revealing mistake: When the fire truck explodes, note a tube behind it going straight to the truck. Probably an FX device to effect the smoke.

Continuity mistake: When the firemen are about to grab the hose and it explodes, note that the other hose inside the truck on the right side has changed positions between shots.

Continuity mistake: Nuclear Man walks towards the newspaper where Lucy's picture is, for a brief moment there's a light smoke coming from behind him as if something was burning (it has nothing to do with the smoke Nuclear produces when flying) which is later gone. Certainly a scene involving fire was cut.

Continuity mistake: Before Nuclear Man see Lacy's picture in the newspaper, he rises from the floor and a wide angle reveals that the table is nowhere around, yet a couple shots later it simply appears half a meter away from him.

Trivia

Near the end of the film, Superman gives a press conference in front of a bluish mirror-glass building which is meant to be the Daily Planet skyscraper in Metropolis (which we all know is New York, sort of). The shot is framed so you can only see the bottom of the building - necessary as it is only about 3 floors high, and is in fact the railway station in Milton keynes, England, about 400 yards from where I work. Even the crowd have a vaguely British look about them - presumably passers-by were recruited and stood there in their own clothes (this would matter less now - Brits look more American than they did in the Eighties).
