Plot Summary

On the verge of giving up his powers for love, Superman (Reeve) is confronted by three super-criminals from his home planet who have escaped imprisonment and come to Earth with the same abilities as the man of steel. Imperious insurrectionist General Zod (Terence Stamp), seductive but sadistic Ursa (Sarah Douglas), and mute brute Non (Jack O'Halloran) challenge Superman to a cosmic battle for world supremacy--just as Superman and Lois Lane (Kidder) finally get romantically involved.

Fresh: Superman II begins in midstream, and never looks back... – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Where...oh where is The Donner Cut?

As great as this film was when it came out in 1981, I felt it didn't have the same heart as what the first movie had. 25 years later, in 2006, I saw The Richard Donner cut of Superman II at a friends house, and I felt that this version of Richard Lester's now seems a sham that so much of what Donner had shot was all acrecited to Lester. Please post The Richard Donner Cut of Superman II here soon....to give the fans the choice as to which version was best.

thank you itunes

this is a classic, even better than the first, and the last good superman movie with Christopher Reeve. Highly recommend adding to your collection.

Please let us have the Richard Donner cut of this movie!

I never liked the second part of SuperMan all that much. But that was only until I saw the Richard Donner cut of the movie. The way it was intended to be, before he got fired from the movie. Please Apple. Put it on.
