Indeed-the Salkinds fired Donner before he could actually film the expose scene and what they used in this recut was actually Reeve's screen test with Holy Palance cut together with Kidder;s screen test...The part at the first with the missle freeing Zod and friends was actually Donner's original ending for Superman I...I would have loved to have seen Donner's finished product on this film. About the ending-i wish Michael Thau had used Lester's flag waving ending as opposed to the return to the diner, which didn't make ANY sense...

In both the director's cut of Superman I and Superman II, listen to Richard Donner's and Tom Mankiewicz's commentaries...
