Subway footage remastered by “Superman IV” fan – Superman homepage
Superman fan Aaron Award painstakingly remastered the subway sequence from “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” to replace the British subway with a New York setting.
Aaron writes, “The most important thing I wanted to do was revisit the footage and change the look and feel of the stage by making it more of a New York setting. While keeping the visual effects tone of the era of movies shot at that time, but more front projection rather than blue screen when possible. “
“Unfortunately, the initial limited budget of Superman iv. In other words, the whole sequence was filmed in an old London underground station replacing New York (Metropolis) ”.
“I also wanted to extend the streak, trying to make it more dramatic and give it more rhythm. Showing Superman flying through the tunnels, dodging a train and showing he is more powerful than a locomotive.
“I’m 98% satisfied with the end result… but I hope everyone enjoys this new sequence and hopefully improves the original theatrical version.”
“Thanks to Daniel Sanchez for directing his boot for the new electrification sequence… and thanks to Scott Endersby for shooting Daniels’ boot and the flight photographed for the flying zoom.”
Here is the original footage for comparison:
