I say Donner Cut then Superman Returns
Hello friend! 👋
Donner, no question!
I think both were a disappointment after how good the first one was. But I like the theatrical version better.
Theatrical all the way.
I’ve never watched the theatrical cut again since the Donner cut was released but I think watch both and you’ll see why.
I'd say watch the original first and compare with the Donner cut.
Just remember that the Donner cut features the original intended ending, rather than a reworked one after Superman had to be finished.
For a fully fleshed out film experience, then the theatrical cut by default. At the end of the day the Donner Cut is a very unfinished rough cut, of which its impossible to not affect immersion. His ideas were way better than what Lester did, but unfortunately there's just no way to complete the vision.
