Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • As a nod to the original comics, Clark Kent is seen briefly considering a phone booth as a place to convert into his alter-ego for the first time, before deciding on another solution.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): At the end of the work day in the Daily Planet, Clark presses the 'Up' button on the elevator and when the doors open, he asks if the lift is going down, and an irate passenger retorts, 'Up! Up!' Clark then presses the 'Down' button. Basically, Clark should have pressed the 'Down' button the first time if he were going down.
  • The villains at the marina were all stunt performers from Kojak (1973).
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): After the earthquake, the gap in the railroad tracks is wider than the length of Superman's body. When he is in place, the gap is much smaller.
