Clive Andrew Mantle (born June 3, 1957) is an English actor who played William in the 1992 film Alien3. He is perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Mike Barrett in the television series Casualty (1996-1998) and Holby City (1999-2001).

Arguably Mantle's most (in)famous role was that of the first Nuclear Man in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, a part that was completely deleted from the film before release. Mantle was to play an initial version of the charter (also incorporating elements of the comic book villain Bizarro in his take) that is created by villain Lex Luthor to defeat his arch-nemesis Superman; when Mantle's Nuclear Man is quickly beaten and destroyed by the Man of Steel in combat, Luther instead hatches a plan to create a second, more powerful Nuclear Man, who is the one seen in the finished film. The deleted scenes featuring Mantle have since taken on something of a legendary status thanks to their bizarre nature, poor special effects and unsuccessful attempts at humor, and are seen as embodying the faults of the movie as a whole. Most of the footage Mantle filmed for Superman IV has since been made available on DVD releases of the film.
