MusicEd921 just released his new fanedit:Superman: Up, Up and Away Edition
this edition focuses primarily on Kal El's journey from boy to man and from man to Superman without the appearance of the three Kryptonian outlaws, constant bickering between Lex Luthor and his henchman Otis, why Clark shouldn't use the word "swell," a complimentary pimp, a voice over of Lois' inner thoughts, and without the need to turn back time. Richard Donner presented us with a classic tale for the ages
"I've always loved Superman. That being said, my first foray into the Superman films was with Superman II. After seeing that and then seeing Superman I, I felt a little let down. With a quick touch up of pacing and taking out a few things that bothered me, I feel like I have made the version of the movie that others as well as myself can enjoy.
My intention was to touch up the first Superman movie. In my opinion, it needed to be a standalone film. I took out anything that hints at a sequel. I wanted the focus to be on Superman's origin and his relationship with Lois. It would've felt too crowded with the inclusion of the Kryptonions in my opinion."
