Factual error: When Superman addresses the UN, the delegate presumably representing the United Kingdom appears behind an "England" sign - "England" is not an international entity represented at the UN, while the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is. (00:32:20)

Audio problem: On the moon, Superman smashes Nuclear Man's head against his knee. The clonk is heard before the hit (even forgetting that sound can't be heard on the moon).

Continuity mistake: Outside the UN, the crowd looks up to the sky and watch Superman come flying. When he lands, 2 seconds later, all the stunts on the first row are either gone or standing somewhere else. A kid on the right with dyed hair, for example, is now standing way behind the crowd.

Other mistake: In the rest of Superman movies, whenever he used his eyes to do some trick a beam came out. In this (really cheap) movie the beam is gone.

Revealing mistake: When Superman drops the elevator containing the imprisoned Nuclear Man on the moon, he flies off and lands to straighten the American flag. In this shot you can plainly see the wires helping him land.

Continuity mistake: During the Great Wall of China scene, the sky changes from cloudy and grey in the shots involving people, to bright and sunny when the wall explodes.
