Video: The hilarious Superman 2 ending you never saw

The Man of Steel really can be a d*ck.

There hasn’t been a Christopher Reeve Superman movie in almost 30 years, but his Man of Steel films are still remembered with a lot more fondness than his successors Brandon Routh and Henry Cavill.

Superman 2 celebrates its 35th anniversary this weekend, and for many fans it’s still the pinnacle of comic book moviemaking.

Terence Stamp as intergalactic despot General Zod, Kal-El losing his powers then getting beaten up by a bloke in a lumberjack shirt, Superman’s unlikely power of throwing cellophane S shields… what’s not to love?

The movie ends with Superman regaining his powers then giving Margot Kidder’s Lois Lane an amnesia-inducing kiss to make her forget that he’s really Clark Kent.

Rohypnol lips weren’t in any Man of Steel comic books we ever read, but it is a fairly convenient way of getting out of a tricky plot dead end.

However, one YouTuber had found an ingenious way to get Superman out of this particular jam in the form of the recut video above. Watch it above for proof that the Man of Steel is, in fact, a total d*ck…

“That s*it eating grin after he drops her with the heroic music playing… f**king gold,” says one fan writes underneath.

We’re not going to disagree here.
