I remember watching the Original Superman 2 Movie by Richard Lester in witch i dont remember much, hence i have the Richard Donner Cut and Loved it, but i would still cut 3 Scenes

01. Superman the Bully
At the end of the Donner Cut, Superman turned back time in witch the Krypton villains are still in the Phantom Zone. Superman never would have given up his powers, so how would the guy at the diner know him? He should have no reason to return to diner to beat up the bully at the diner since Superman himself never got hurt in the first place. I mean if you all of a sudden got Super Powers, would you hunt down your Childhood Bullies and give them a beat down even if they dont remember you at all.

02. Strange Substance
You know the weird thing about Superman 2 is when Zod lands in the water on Earth and asks what strange substance this is, i mean do Kryptonians find Pee Water interesting or do they simply not eat and drink. Now thats something i would cut out, even the whole walking on water scene.

03. The Floating Gun
I find it Stupid how Zod's Laser Eye Beams can make the Gun Float when the two Officers stops them, i assumed they would cut that also from the Richard Donner Movie.

What would you Cut from the Richard Donner Movie and would you Paste the Lester Movie Scenes with the Richard Version aswell.

Oh and im Dismissing the Superman Returns Movie for so many Plot Point Reasons.

Apparently Superman Returns is a Direct Sequel from Superman 1 and Superman 2 with Christopher Reeves witch the Directors are Dismissing Superman 3 and Superman 4 for obvious reasons.

Now in the Richard Donner Cut, Superman turns back time again where he dident have Sex with Lois and Zod with the other two are still trap in the Phantom Zone.

Now for irony sake, if you watched the Supergirl Movie right where Selena enters her Car at the Beginning of the Movie with the Omegahedron, you will notice how the Orb is activating the Radio in witch you can hear a News Bulletin about Superman leaving Earth where Scientists Discovered a Planet in a far of Galaxy witch would make Perfect Sense for the Superman Returns Movie, especially the Deleted 8 Minute Scene.

Now the Point of the Plot for Superman Returns, how in the World can that Kid be Superman's Son or even Exist when Superman turned back Time.

I would have ditched the time travel ending and just used the kiss, yes it's goofy but it's better than repeating the end of the first one or I would have left it open, Lois knows he goes to see the president, end film.

As for the water substance thing, it actually makes sense in this universe, Kryptonian's don't seem to get wet so it would seem they probably don't drink water either.

Agreed, and the memory kiss, while goofy, actually has grounding in the comics.

I'd probably be fine with it if it weren't already the end of the first one but it was so I have to see it repeated. In the first one it makes sense that he an do it yet not do it all the time, he's very emotional, pushing himself to his limits. In 2 TRDC he does it with ease and it just doesn't work. The kiss is also a cop out like reversing time but it's not something that he can use to get out if any distractions situation.
