Recap Supplement: Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) (part 1 of 2)

Note: Before going any further, I recommend you read the Agony Booth recap of Superman IV which can be found right here.

With the new Superman movie coming out next year, now seems as good a time as any to take a look at a relic from the last time the Man of Steel graced the silver screen.

Recap Supplement: Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) (part 1 of 2)

In 2006, Superman Returns was released, and as part of the marketing blitz surrounding it, when it hit DVD, all of the previous movies were given deluxe DVD treatments. The first film got a nice four-disc set; the second not only got one special edition for itself, but also one for the vaunted (though still a little flawed) Richard Donner Cut. Hell, even the third and fourth films got a little lovin’!

Today, we’ll be examining the deluxe edition granted to the fourth film in the series. The lineup of extras? Well, a commentary track, the trailer, and thirty minutes worth of deleted scenes. Hey, considering how bad this movie is, that’s pretty goddamned deluxe in my book!
