Movie Quote(s):
  • Lex Luthor: Lenny, I've always considered you the Dutch Elm disease in my family tree.
  • Lex Luthor: This is my nephew Lenny. He worships me.
  • [Superman and Nuclear Man confront each other in downtown Metropolis] Nuclear Man: Where is the woman? Superman: Give it up, you'll never find her. Nuclear Man: If you will not tell me, I will hurt people! [Nuclear Man begins to cause mass destruction] Superman: Stop! Don't do it, the people!
  • Lex Luthor: Lenny, let's try and keep your IQ a family secret.
  • Superman: You'd risk world wide nuclear war for your own personal financial gain. Lex Luthor: Nobody wants war. I just want to keep the threat alive.
Movie Trivia:
  • The movie was originally budgeted at $36 million dollars. Just before filming was to begin, Cannon Pictures, which was starting to suffer financial problems, slashed the budget to $17 million. As a result, the filmmakers had to cut corners by doing things like reusing special effects.
  • Richard Donner, who'd been fired from Superman II (1980), was offered the director's chair, but he declined.
  • When Superman makes his speech at the end of the film, he paraphrases Dwight D. Eisenhower when he says, "there will be peace when the people of the world want it so much that their leaders will have no choice but to give it to them."
  • Much of the special effects crew that worked on the first three films and Supergirl (1984) had been brought on board during pre-production but would eventually leave following salary disputes.
  • According to his biography, Richard Lester was offered the chance to direct the movie, but he declined. It is unknown whether he or Richard Donner was asked first by the producers.
