Apparently the maintainer of the Caped Wonder fan site has sources within MPI who say they've redone the transfer. One flaw in the previous transfer was a dark dupe source was used for Superman flying past the pimp to save Lois shot because the negative was torn, but now they can use the negative and digitally fix the tear. Another flaw was an orange flash frame over Christopher Reeve's credit. It was an early 4K transfer for MPI which was rushed to meet the 40th anniversary deadline and this time they took their time to do it right. Another complaint was the yellowish hue applied to the Kryptonian white costumes. Also the plaster in the breakaway parts of Hoover dam was a different colour, giving away the effect in the 4K. The previous blu-ray transfer had fixed that so they can fix it again for the new 4K.Sorry if this is the wrong thread to ask this, but what was wrong with the initial 4K release of Superman: the movie?
I have watched it and it looked really fine to me.
