Ken Thorne was given a freer hand in the scoring of Superman III in accordance with the series' change in direction and more comedic tone. His new thematic material consisted of related themes for Gus Gorman and a general theme for computers, plus an ominous "Supercomputer" theme heard in the latter part of the score. Thorne also supplied a love theme for Lana Lang and Clark Kent, based on a melody written for the film by Giorgio Moroder. Lois Lane's theme is not present in the score because she only appears in the film briefly . This album and the original album for Superman II were combined for an out-of-print Japanese CD release. Restored complete score release. February 29, 2008: part of Superman: The Music (1978-1988) 8-CD set from Film Score Monthly.

Superman - The Movie: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Superman 2 and 3 (both scored by Ken Thorne) are represented by one CD each, with their source music (and movie 3's alternate takes) relocated to disc 8. Of course, the sequels are lesser than the original film, and this extends to Thorne's rehash scores. He basically just re-does Williams' cues from the first movie, all with virtually no variation, and with an obviously smaller orchestra. For movie 2's villains, he squeezes out every bit of "Krypton" music he could find, including unused material, which can still be found on the original movie's soundtrack.

Superman III: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, based on the film Superman III, features contributions by Ken Thorne and various artists and was released in 1983. A CD of this album coupled with the Superman II album was released in Japan. Superman III was the first of the films to have a score and soundtrack on the same release. Side A was devoted to 14 minutes of Ken Thorne's score (including new material such as a comedic cue that corresponds with the opening slapstick sequence, a theme for Richard Pryor's character, Gus Gorman, and the climactic fight between Clark Kent and Evil Superman). Side B was devoted to music by pop mogul Giorgio Moroder. He also created a new.
