Continuity mistake: When Nuclear Man is destroying Metropolis, the same stuntman with a gabardine and a hat is seen close to a shop window, then a second later in the middle of the street and a second afterwards getting thrown through the air with a group of people. He looks and dress just like Clark Kent, guess it's his stand in doing some extra work.

Revealing mistake: Before Superman brings the cosmonaut safely to his spaceship the entrance door wiggles as if made of cardboard. There's no air in space and it's supposed to be a strong, solid structure.

Continuity mistake: When Nuclear Man arrives to earth, full of energy from the sun, his footsteps don't glow; neither do they when he arrives to the balcony, several scenes later. Then a couple of seconds after they glow but stop glowing when he walks towards Superman and keep that way for the rest of the film.
