75:08 / 95:08-95:18

Superman's conversation with te girl is a little longer.

The pilots for the first time. One of them says: "Get a weather report from Metropolis Airport."

6.2 sec




75:51 / 96:08-96:20

Before lightning strikes, the pilots have a little chat. Apparently a reference to former US President Jimmy Carter who used to be a peanut farmer in Georgia.

Pilot 1: "No, it doesn't."
Pilot 2: "Yeah, and the old man hates bumpy, that's great. Better tell him to get rid of his drink."
Pilot 3: "The old man drinks?"
Pilot 2: "After a mouthful of peanuts, wouldn't you?"
They laugh.

12.1 sec




Partially Equal to the Director's Cut
77:10 / 97:39-100:17

After saving the plane, there is a further scene from the DC: Superman explains to his father that he had used his powers to help people. Compared to the DC, there is additional footage in the Extended Edition - four times to be exact:
Alternate
DC 79:57-79:59 / 97:43-97:50

The first shot is actually a little longer in the DC but that is because Jor-El's speech begins in the off here.
However, the Extended Edition contains two additional interior shots of Jor-El giving his speech.

Extended Edition 5.6 sec longer



The Extended Edition lacks a few superfluous frames of the following shots.


81:06 / 98:57-98:58

Jor-El a little earlier before he says "Lastly...".

1.5 sec



Alternate
81:26-81:29 / 99:18-99:24

During the words "Were it not for vanity, why...", the DC cuts to Superman. It makes the pause appear a little shorter. The Extended Edition on the other sticks with Jor-El.

Extended Edition 2.4 sec longer

Director's CutExtended Edition




Alternate / Recut
81:39-81:51 / 99:34-99:54

Due to recuts, the farewell is a little shorter in the DC.

The Director's Cut cuts to Superman. Jor-El then instantaneously says "My son."
The new shot of Superman ends abruptly in the middle. As a result, one gets to see Jor-El fade slowly.

The Extended Edition contains a longer shot of Jor-El and after some hesitation, he says "My son."
Then cut to Superman for the first time, followed by Jor-El fading. Then the entire shot of Superman from the DC before Jor-El fades - except it does not end in the middle here.

Extended Edition 8.6 sec longer

Director's CutExtended Edition



The entire dialog of the scene.

Jor-El: "You enjoyed it."
Superman: "I don't know what to say, Father. I'm afraid I just got carried away."
Jor-El: "I anticipated this, my son."
Superman: "You couldn't have. You couldn't have imagined..."
Jor-El: "How good it felt? You are revealed to the world. Very well. So be it. But you still must keep your secret identity."
Superman: "Why?"
Jor-El: "The reasons are two. First, you cannot serve humanity 28 hours a day."
Superman: "24."
Jor-El: "Or 24, as it is in Earth time. Your help would be called for endlessly. Even for those tasks which human beings could solve themselves. It is their habit to abuse their resources
in such a way."
Superman: "And secondly?"
Jor-El: "Second, your enemies will discover their only way to hurt you: By hurting the people you care for."
Superman: "Thank you, Father."
Jor-El: "Lastly, do not punish yourself for your feelings of vanity. Simply learn to control them. It is an affliction common to all, even on Krypton. Our destruction could have been avoided but for the vanity of some who consider us indestructible. Were it not for vanity, why, at this very moment I could embrace you in my arms, my son."

all in all 158.5 sec (= 2:38 min) compared to the Theatrical Version




Alternate / Identically Equal to the Director's Cut
77:22-77:28 / 100:29-100:47

In the Extended Edition (and also in the DC), the camera zooms out. Furthermore, Clark has a little chat with some citizen in front of the store.
Guy: "Yeah, that'll be the day, huh? I said, that'll be the day when a guy could fly, huh?"
Clark (before walking away): "Oh, I don't know. You'd be surprised."
The guy turns back around to the TV: "Yeah."

The Theatrical Version contains another shot of the shop without any dialog instead.

The Extended Edition contains a conversation between the workers and Jimmy Olsen once again treats his people as bad as he is being treated by his boss Perry White.

Jimmy: "Let me tell you something, Vinnie. A good reporter doesn't get great stories, a good reporter makes them great."
Vinnie: "Oh, yeah?"
Percy from the background: "Olsen!"
Jimmy smiles at Vinnie: "Yeah. Chief wants me. Yeah, chief?"
Percy just wants his coffee: "Black, no sugar."
Vinnie laughs which is why Jimmy yells at him: "Black, no sugar! You heard him."
When Vinnie has left, Jimmy mumbles: "Sheesh."


The Theatrical Version shows Perry White in his office instead. He reaches for the Daily Planet and looks at the headline "Caped Wonder stuns city".

Lex: "Why are you driving on the left side?"
He pushes some buttons and the car switches lanes.
Lex: "Ready, Miss Teschmacher?"
She is powdering her noise in the bushes and yells angrily: "Have you ever tried running in high heels?"
Then to herself (with lowered voice): "He probably has."

The Extended Edition cuts to a take from a further distance. Lex: "Somebody hurt?"
One of the military guys says: "Well, that was fast."
Lex: "Fast? When this woman's life is at stake? Let's see here..."
He bends over and asks: "You have a stretcher?"
The request "Get a stretcher" is being passed along by several people.
The one in charge asks: "Anything I can do?"
Lex: "Oh, I think you've already done it. She's gonna be all right."
Miss Teschmacher: "I don't feel too good."
Lex whispers: "Miss Teschmacher, you've done very well."
Miss Teschmacher: "I've done very well."
Lex: "I said that."

Then Otis working at the rocket again. The ambulance shows up nearby.


In the Theatrical Version, the previous shot off Lex starts a little earlier instead. Lex here asks: "Somebody hurt?".


Extended Edition 75.7 sec (= 1:16 min) longer



101:19 / 129:41-132:20

After Lex attacks Otis with the words "You want to see a very, very long arm", they fight longer in the back of the car while Miss Teschmacher tries to keep the vehicle on the road. Subsequently, the military gets ready to engage - followed by the villainous trio arguing in the parking lot. Lex is still angry with Otis and Miss Teschmacher yells at him as well. Otis then gets a secnd chance and they get going.

Miss Teschmacher: "My marshmallow!"
Lex: "Leave me alone! Give me your arm, Otis. Hand it over! I'll wring your neck! I'll give you a long arm!
Otis: "I'm sorry, Mr. Luthor. I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I-- I just got-- I got mixed up. It's all right. I'll go in there and fix that thing."
Lex: "It's okay, Otis, it's okay. There's another XK 101 being launched at the same time."
Miss Teschmacher: "See? There's another XK 101 being launched at exactly the same time."
Lex: "I just said that."
Otis: "No, she said there was a XK 101 being launched at exactly the same time, Mr. Luthor."
Lex: "Don't tell me that."
Miss Teschmacher: "But there is another XK 101 being launched at exactly the same time."
Lex gets more upset: "I told you not to tell me that!"
Otis: "Oh, no, no, no. Mr. Luthor, please. She didn't mean it. Miss Teschmacher-"
Lex: "Shut up in there!"
Otis: "Mr. Luthor, are you mad?"
Miss Teschmacher: "You did it again, Otis."
Otis: "Miss Teschmacher, I think you did."
Miss Teschmacher: "I know! But he didn't say exactly."
Otis: "But he always hits me!"
Next scene. They are en route.
Otis is begging: "Mr. Luthor, come on. Let me do it again. I can get it right."

One of the guys says: "What's he eating chocolate for?"
Lex: "Well, it gives him a lot of sugar."
Guy: "Yeah. All right, now listen, fellas. Back out here, go back a few miles, pull off-- Just back up, we'll open an exit."
Lex: "Can't we get past you here?"

25.9 sec




102:46 / 134:23-134:45

Earlier conversation with Lois and the Indian in the Extended Edition.
Lois: "Tell me, chief, what do you think about all of this?"
Indian: "No oil, no uranium, no coal, no precious minerals. Hell, no water anymore. Not since the government dammed it all up to service those towns on the other side of the mountain. If we still had water, we would never sell our beloved land."
Lois: "Well my, uh-- My associate, Mr. Olsen is taking pictures of that dam, but (what I don't understand...)"

With her last words, the versions are back in sync - except the Theatrical Version shows Lois from a different angle.
