Description

Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut is a 2006 American superhero film directed by Richard Donner. It is a re-edited director's cut of the 1980 theatrical version of Superman II, directed by Richard Lester, and serves as an alternate direct sequel to the 1978 film Superman. Since the release of Man of Steel (2013) there has been a lot of debate among fans on whether or not Superman killed the Phantom Zone criminals at the end of Superman II, specifically when he crushes a depowered Zod's hand and then tosses him across the room and into a seemingly bottomless abyss. Many have argued that the Richard Donner Cut contains a cut scene where the criminals are arrested. It doesn't. That cut scene does exist and was broadcast on International TV, but has never been released on any home video version of the movie and is not present in The Donner Cut.
