The kick ass news is over at Superman Homepage.

I read a pretty good synopsis about what is fabled to be in this cut online a while back and there's some pretty cool shit. Apparently, [SPOILER] there's a scene at the beginning where Lois thinks Clark is Superman. She draws glasses around Superman's picture in the paper and confronts him about it. He pretends he doesn't know what she's talking about, so she throws herself out the window to prove the point. He runs downstairs, slows her fall with a gust of superbreath and she crashes into a fruit stand. They even have pictures of Margot Kidder lying in the fruit.

Cool stuff, can't wait to see this.

I wonder if they will change that bit with the nuke Supes throws into space from the Eiffel Tower destroying the Phantom Zone back to the missile Supes re-directs from Hackensack New Jersey. in the first film. freeing Zod and the rest...I always hated that whole French bit.

I'm dying to see this.

Donner's Supes is one of my favorite films and always wished to see Supes 2 as was intended. I doubt there's enough Donner material to make it an entirely-Donner cut, but it'll be better for sure.

And I'm glad Singer "loosely" bases his new film in them.



Still, I don't think its anything but a rumor for now. But it does make sense.

Some new or perhaps rehashed info
The biggest revelation of the interview concerns plans for "Superman II". Scenes shot by fired director Richard Donner (who directed "Superman: The Movie"), including all of Brando's work for the second film, may finally see the light of day. "There will be a Donner cut [of "Superman II"] from what I hear," Salkind said. "There will apparently be an original cut with the original music and more stuff." Whether the extra footage will be presented as an alternative version of the film or included as a supplement has not yet been determined.

Actor Jack O'Halloran, who played mute super-villain Non in "Superman" and "Superman II" confirmed that Time Warner interviewed him about his work on both films. Like Salkind, O'Halloran believes there will be a Donner version of "Superman II". "I understand they [Time Warner] are letting Donner do his cut of Superman II," O'Halloran said. "We spoke a lot about Donner, whom I like a lot."

This is very exciting. I like that they're putting the "old" Batman and Superman movies out in sets marking that particular period. It does a nice job of turning the page for the new films. Very cool.

Superman DVD update:
From the Warner chat on HTF last night on the 14-disk Superman DVD Box Set

No definite release date for the Superman 14-disc collection except that it's before X-Mas.

Superman Returns will be a part of the 14-disc Superman collection.

We will be releasing both the extended cut of SUPERMAN THE MOVIE (the one on DVD now) and the original, shorter theatrical version as well. Further, we will be releasing both the SUPERMAN II theatrical cut, and the "Donner cut" both in the box, or available singularly. Lastly, SUPERGIRL is coming, but SUPERGIRL will not be part of the 14 disc SUPERMAN set.

We have located all the footage for SUPERMAN IV, and will be
including a great deal of deleted scenes. But no change in the version.

That's good news regarding the separate cuts of the first two movies and the fact that the second movie will be available individually as well. We'll see how much this set streets for, but I'll probably just end up getting the Donner cut and maybe the first movie if it also hits the shelves in an individual package.

I'm only interested in the first two Supes, & am really keen on seeing Donner's cut. I don't think I have 13 or 14 discs worth of interest in Superman, certainly not at the price I would expect them to set for it.

I am really satisfied with my Superman DVD that was released like 5 years ago. I will probably just pick up the Donner version of II. Actually I will probably rent it first. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around them doing this right. Here's hoping!

I may get the first one again just so I don't have to suffer through having a flipper disc anymore. Gawd, that's annoying.

Looking forward to checking out Dick's original cut. Ive seen Supes about 100 times, so the only reason Id even rewatch it is to see the new scenes. Do we have to buy the whole 14 disc box to see this one tho?

Let's hope the Dick Donner Superman II will be available by itself because, no offense to Richard Lester, but the original Superman II sucked donkey dicks. I have the bootleg DVD of Superman II Dick Donner International Cut and it's very different and the remastered real version should kick ass. There's even a text track (like subtitles) that tell you when a scene or even a shot is a Richard Donner or Richard Lester shot. It's very informative on the bootleg, so let's hope there's something equally good on the real deal.

I'd never buy a 14 DVD set of the original Superman movies. I liked I & liked parts of II, but lived this long without seeing more than 8 minutes of iV and would like to make it my entire life without seeing more than that.

The Donner cut will be available buy itself. There will be a ludicrious amount of Superman sets this November. A Christopher Reeve Collection with the 4 disc Superman 1, 2 Disc Superman II, and 1 disc Superman III and IV. Then Donner seperately. Then Superman Returns 2 disc. Then a Superman Returns 1 Disc. Then there will be an Ultimate Collection with Superman I-IV, the Donner Cut, Superman Returns, and Look, up in the sky! It no longer will include Supergirl, which will also be released. So I think it will actually be 12 discs, 13 tops.

Seems this artwork got leaked over at this website which is in Spanish. I hope this doesn't mean it's only going to be released in other regions. I'll have to find out on Tuesday.

Ummm... it doesn't say it's not sold seperately. It specifically shows the four films in the boxset and then the Donner cut in its own case. What's odd is that I've seen that cover art, but it wasn't the one I've seen as the decided on art (though its possible what I saw was a store exclusive or just a slipcover).

Half will be in the S:TM set, the other half (the "Famour Studios" ones) are on the SUperman 2 set.

I hope they release them on their own though, they're classic works of animation and deserve more attention than just being slipped in with the movies. Christ, I like 'em better than the movies.

14 discs is a little too much of a good (and occasionally mediocre) thing to me. I'll likely be buying the Special Edition of 1, the Donner Cut of 2 and Returns.
