Continuity mistake: After beating up the clone of Superman in the Rumpus Room, Lex walks up to the container holding the real Superman's body and talks to it. There is a towel draped over Lex's left shoulder, and the shadows are on the right side of Lex's face and body. It then cuts to an angle showing Lex's reflection in the glass of Superman's container, and suddenly the shadows on his body move to the same side as the towel. It cuts to a different angle and the shadows go back to his right side. (00:42:50)

Continuity mistake: When Superman enters the ‘Rumpus Room', the red solar lamps turn on and there are lots of red hexagons on the ceiling and floor that glow as well. Throughout the entire scene, the red hexagons are never consistent in size and position from one shot to the next. It is most noticeable when Superman hits the ground after Lex's assault and the hexagons are roughly the size of his ear. But then in the high shot, they are bigger than his whole head.

Continuity mistake: In the overhead shot of Superman standing in Lex's office, he is standing on a stage like area raised with small stairs. The circle he is standing on is a gold color with some blue towards the outside then a gold ring. And Superman is standing almost dead center. A couple of shots later, without him moving, it shows Superman's feet and now he is standing closer to the edge, and the circle is now totally blue except for the gold ring around it. (00:40:45)

Continuity mistake: Once Toyman throws the bus off the roof, you can see the police cars on the street below and how they are arranged. It then cuts to a view from inside the buss at Lois and the little girl hanging on for dear life and out the back window of the bus you can see the police cars. Only the ones visible are not in any way like the patterns you could see previously. They rearranged themselves. (00:37:35)

Continuity mistake: When the doll leaps at Lois with a knife, she grabs one of three reddish pink backpacks and smacks it into the window. The back pack she grabs is the one on the left, and as she grabs it you can see that the middle backpack has a rectangular shape on the front that is just an outline, and the backpack on the right has a similar spot but is round and yellow. Then when the children are getting off the bus, the remaining two backpacks are shown hanging there still and the one that was in the middle now has a yellow oval shape on the front instead of the rectangular outline. The design of the backpack is also different. Also in the shot just before this, the same spot is shown, but the backpacks are missing. (00:36:35)

Continuity mistake: Lois grabs one of the three red backpacks from the front of the bus and smacks the doll with it. The backpack then just completely disappears. It's not in her hands, it's not back on the hook, it's not on the floor, nor on the ground outside of the bus. It just vanished into mid air after she hit the doll and is never seen again.

Continuity mistake: When Lois is sneaking up to the door of the school bus, you can see the front wheel appears to be one solid piece all the way around and in the spokes and center.

Also the front bumper suddenly becomes elongated. The headlight is also missing from the first shot and reappears. (00:36:05)

Pay attention to the two on the far right of the reflection. It then cuts to a close up of them, not the reflection, and suddenly the little girl instantly has her hands over her eyes. (00:36:15)

Continuity mistake: When Doomsday slams Superman down into the subway, the hole they make in the street is right in the middle of a crossing. But a minute later in the film as civilians are walking up to the hole, there are no lines anywhere around it. Moments later after Jimmy takes a picture of the hole, the shot cuts to a far angle and now the hole is next to the crosswalk lines, and in that shot the stairway entrance to the subway station also vanishes. The road also becomes much wider with more lanes, and the red truck turns around. (00:22:40 - 00:23:25)

Question: After the "death" of Superman, why did Jimmy take a job at another paper?

Answer: It was his way of coping with grief after Superman dies. Jimmy felt he needed to be in a new environment, away from painful memories. Similarly, Perry White turned to alcohol for solace, while Lois Lane sought out Clark's mother, Martha Kent for help.
