In a story from The Digital Bits, it appears that the set was released with some technical guffaws. First off, it seems that the 1978 theatrical version of Superman does not "have the original 1978 audio - it's got an edited down version of the irritating remixed audio from 2000."
Secondly, in some of the sets that were released Superman III "is mistakenly the previous movie-only version, not the new Deluxe Edition that's supposed to be in the set."
However, The Bits contacted Warner Bros. and they issued the following statement:
"Bonus content was omitted from the Superman III Deluxe Edition in the 14-disc Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition. Furthermore, disc one of Superman: The Movie Four Disc Special Edition did not include the Dolby Digital 2.0 mix. Neither disc is known to be physically defective in any way.
Warner Home Video wants to extend apologies to all of our loyal Superman fans who've waited so patiently for these great collections and has taken immediate steps to correct these errors with the intention of standing behind our product 100%.
Replacement discs can be obtained by calling: 800-553-6937. The exchange program applies only to purchases of the Superman III Deluxe Edition in the Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition and to disc one of Superman: The Movie Four Disc Special Edition, available as a single title, as well as in The Christopher Reeve Superman Collection and in the Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition."
