      The script for Superman II was written at the same time as the first movie. Even the filming was done nearly at the same time. The director of Superman, The Movie had completed seventy-five percent of the sequel, but tension between Richard Donner and the producers of both films became unworkable, so Donner left the project, and didn’t receive credit.

      But, the atmosphere, storytelling, and characters from the first definitely show a carry over in this sequel, making it just as


      good as the first, and in some places, better. The best scene was the battle sequence between Superman and the three super-villains on the streets of Metropolis. Visually stunning and impactful, especially since Superman technically lost that one and ran away.

      The three villains made this movie great. They were clearly greater than Lex Luthor, who was reduced to comic relief in this film. The villains provided definite possibility that Superman could lose, as in the Metropolis street battle scene, and ...


      • at one point, he could’ve lost his life. This possibility elevated Superman II above its mighty predecessor for me.

        The fact that Lois figures out what we could easily tell all along just simply provides more humorous elements and drama, particularly at the end, when Clark Kent proves to the small town-diner’s owners and patrons that he had been �working out.�

        The battle at the small town, when the villains test their powers before calling on Kal-El to come kneel before Zod

        was a good precursor to the battle in Metropolis. The only flaw was the kiss of forgetfulness Clark gives Lois to make her forget his alter-ego and the fact that they were married. Did they get a divorce? Was their union the result of Lois’ son in Superman Returns? And when did Superman ever have the power to make people forget based on a kiss. Other than these minor love story issues, Superman II is worthy of carrying that �S� shield before it.
