    The name did not ring a bell, so I clicked on your site. Seeing some of those old Superman 2 shots really makes me wish that Warner would give it the special treatment as they did with Superman 1. I always remember liking the second one more as a kid.

    Jack is famous for playing Non the big childlike phantom zone villain.. there was alot of problems making superman 2 including the firing of richard donner.. you can see the extra footage on the tv versions.

    Uh, this was the theatrical artwork. It was also the old Media VHS artwork, too.

    Matthew,

    I know. I don't know why these people are getting so bent out of shape.

    Guys, know the facts before you criticize something. Honestly, this cover looks BETTER than the old Media Home Video artwork.

    MGM keeps the original artwork more times than not. Look at Invasion U.S.A. with Chuck Norris. It's artwork even shows the WTC, and that DVD came out a month or two after 9-11. MGM has been guilty of creating bad artwork, but honestly, this isn't nearly as bad as others. And like Matt said, it's the theatrical artwork and the Media Home Video artwork. If it's crappy, blame them, not MGM.
