Now that Superman II is well on its way to recieving a directors edition it is perhaps the time to turn our attention to the other superman film which badly needs a new DVD edition and recut, Superman IV: The Quest For Peace. SUPERMAN IV's test screening was conducted in Orange County, California. The complete cut was shown, which had a running time of 134 minutes. However the test screening proved to be disastrous, so major cuts were called for, and a lot of important sequences were left on the cutting room floor. The complete version would fill in some major plot holes, for example - What happened to Jeremy after he met Superman at the World Leader's summit? The first Nuclear Man (Notice that Lex isn't as surprised when Nuclear Man 2 appears), and the romance between Lacy and Clark. The completed version would create a balance between the story telling elements, i.e. plot, action, romance, that is sadly lacking in the current version. Superman IV may not be the best superman movie, but it is a film, that if restored would become much better, creating a more fitting swansong for the Reeve films. For many fans superman IV is almost an embarrasment compared to the other films, but with a directors cut Superman IV would become something that fans could be proud of. Right now Superman IV, feels like an edited down version of a longer movie, and that is exactly what it is, and its about time that we see the entire film the way Christopher Reeve and the film makes intended.
