Keith Chow and Adam Starcaster pick up where they left off last episode as they revisit Metropolis in Superman II, the 1981 follow-up to the smash hit Superman! Often lauded as one of the best superhero sequels ever, Superman II was not without some issues. Though Christopher Reeve as Superman, Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, and Margot Kidder as Lois Lane all returned for the sequel, the film had to deal with a lot of behind-the-scenes shenanigans that eventually took Richard Donner off the project until, 25 years later, Warner Bros. finally released the Donner Cut on home video in 2006.
This week, Keith and Adam compare and contrast the different cuts and determine whether Superman II still holds up as a superhero sequel. Be sure to give it a listen and KNEEL BEFORE POD!
