WIth Superman: The Movie smashing the box office, fans were instantly eager for a sequel. They didn’t have to wait long; Superman: The Movie and its sequel were filmed simultaneously by Richard Donner and completed by Richard Lester after Donner and the studio had a falling out. In the sequel, Superman battles against three villains that rival his own power: the icy Ursa (Sarah Douglas), the lumbering Non (Jack O'Halloran), and the maniacal General Zod (Terence Stamp).

The movie features even more action than the original, without losing any of the heart or humor. Again, the movie was critically loved and did huge numbers at the box office. Folks thought Hollywood should never be without a Superman movie...
