Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Over 200 unknown actors auditioned for the part, including Christopher Walken and Nick Nolte.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Clark and Lois are leaving the Daily Planet on Clark's first day, he tries to follow Lois into the revolving door, getting his briefcase stuck. So, he then goes into the partition behind Lois. But when they come out into the street on the other side, they exit from the same partition. They enter the door separately but exit together.
  • Casting director Lynn Stalmaster was the first to suggest Christopher Reeve for the title role but Donner and the Salkinds felt he was too young and too skinny. He nevertheless did an excellent screen test that blew the director and producers away. Once he had the part, Reeve underwent a strict physical training session for months, going from 170 pounds to 212 in the period from pre-production to filming.
  • Richard Donner had effectively shot 75% of Superman II when he was fired by the Salkinds.
