Superman Summer - Superman 4: The Quest For Peace (1987)
Starring: Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman and Margot Kidder, Jackie Cooper, Marc McClure, Jon Cryer, Sam Wanamaker, Mariel Hemingway, Mark Pillow, Jim Broadbent
Using a strand of Superman's hair, Lex Luthor creates Nuclear Man.
Reeve was disinterested in returning to the role but was persuaded by the offer of script input. Thus we get the nuclear disarmament plot-line, a cause close to Reeve's heart. It may not have turned out how he had envisioned. Superman's method of disposing of the planet's entire nuclear arsenal is to collect all the warheads in a giant onion bag which he then hurtles into the sun. I'm no scientist but I'm pretty sure this would destroy our entire universe. Way to go Superman!
As a kid I thought this was the worst movie my young eyes had ever witnessed. I've been scarred by worse over the years but "Superman 4" deserves it's infamous reputation. If you want to see how it could have been even worse then check out the deleted scenes on the Blu-Ray. That's right, footage was shot that was actually considered too bad for "Superman 4"!
