Editing Details:
In an interview with Richard Donner during the 2001 restoration, he commented on his excitement that these scenes were going back in. No idea why they didn’t make the final cut, but here they are back in context.
Cuts and Additions:
- In addition to the 8 minutes of deleted scenes presented in the 2001 Expanded Edition, this also adds two more scenes: An extension where Otis has to feed ravenous unseen pets Lex keeps underground while Lex and Miss Tessmacher discuss their relationship, and a later scene where Lex feeds Miss Tessmacher to “The Babies,” only to … well, let’s not spoil it.

v.2:
- A far cry from the holy grail that would be a fully anamorphic restored KCOP cut, this merely gives us two more scenes in the film
(about 3:15 to the runtime of the 2001 Expanded Edition.). Richard
Donner noted in his 2001 interview with IGNFF about the forthcoming
Expanded Edition that he was particularly looking forward to the
reinsertion of “Ned Beatty feeding those things underground.” Well,
they didn’t show up in the actual 2001 Expanded Edition, but they were
included as a supplement on the DVD. So I’ve put the two scenes with
this tiny subplot back in. It greatly captures more of Lex’s twisted
mind, and it bridges the gap between Superman flying away from the
desert differently.This V.2 also uses the 1978 mix in almost every scene from the theatrical cut, with the 2001 mix downmixed in all the deleted or restored scenes. The result is a truer sound for the purists. 2001 mix is provided for comparison. There is also a music-only track featuring John Williams legendary score.

Adigitalman achieved his intention perfectly with this extended edition. Personally, I feel the 1978 theatrical version was perfect as it was, but ADM did fans a great service when he made this edit. The picture quality is first rate, the presentation is fine, the extra material is seamlessly integrated, and there are three audio options to choose from, which shows that a great deal of effort was put into this. You can’t rally ask for more than that.

Ok, so this isn’t an epic edit or anything, but definitely a fun addition to the original. It gets my vote! 5/5
