This could go down in fan editing history as the ideal mash-up of the Donner Superman films. 😃

Can’t wait to check this out! I remember following this when work was first started. Thought I’d check back in on the progress of it following the news of Donner’s passing this week.

Again, thank you for your patience and for checking it back. You are absolutely right, after Richard passed away a few weeks ago, I decided to finish the edit and finally is here.
