Noted in case the imagery is close enough to be uncomfortable: At one point, Superman in his ordinary-human guise climbs out of a high window and jumps, falling for a while before activating his powers and flying away.

Superman occasionally appears to look out at the audience: once at the end of the scene where Clark and Lois are mugged, and again at the end of the movie.

Paraphrased: "Otis, do you know why the number '200' is significant to us both? Because it's your weight and my IQ!" Also brief fat insult hurled near the end of the movie, yet it is hard to distinguish.

The villain detonates a stolen nuclear warhead at the climax of the movie. The emphasis is subsequently on seismic damage; there is nobody at ground zero of the blast and due to the science-fictional way the situation is resolved, fallout and radiation damage never become an issue.
