This is a fan made trailer someone stuck up on YouTube.com concerning some released footage of Richard Donner's Superman II. This is a COMPLETELY different movie to the Superman II that is shown on TV every year. The villians are a lot more violent and Marlon Brando is in it. This footage has not seen the light of day in 27 years after Donner was sacked from the production. We are talking about over an hour of never before seen footage.

A large part of the current Superman II's problems is the wide variety of camp humour that replacement director Richard lester inserted in. Donner shot 83% of Superman II before he was axed. Only 30% of the theatrical Superman II belongs to Donner. This new version will have to use some Lester footage to fill in the blanks Donner never shot (about 15%).
