Actually I disagree. Superman II, for me, is a film I want to ignore because of its history, and its two cuts: a comedic yet cynical version (Lester), and a heartfelt yet incomplete cut (Donner). For me, anyone who could make an ultimate cut of SII, it would have to be one of us and not anyone who didn't take the material seriously or doesn't have hatred over something that happened, now, 33 years ago that affects his filmmaking when he goes back to that film. But one that takes that story, all of the cuts, maybe even III and IV, and enhances the film, fixes the film, makes it just as good if not better than STM, as it was probably intended.

There is only one guy who can do that, and he wanted to have it as an officla relase which WB isn't keen on doing. But man, if it did...
