* CaliforniaDoubling: The movie was shot in Calgary and High River, Alberta. Calgary doubled for Metropolis, while High River doubled for Smallville. This continued the trend from the last two films. In fact, the opening to the film takes place in downtown Calgary, as you may notice from the buildings.

** According to Ilya Salkind, the original script was going to involve Comicbook/{{Brainiac}} and Mr. Mxyzptlk (who would have played by Dudley Moore) teaming up against Superman, who would also meet his cousin, Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}, who was adopted by Brainiac.

The three characters would have been involved in a LoveTriangle, with a jealous Brainiac turning Superman evil and Supergirl agreeing to marry him if he returned Superman to normal. Superman would have made a deal with Mxyzptlk to transport him and Brainiac to another dimension in order to settle the matter without superpowers, which they would have done by jousting in medieval armor.
