This is the third live-action theatrical Superman films to not feature Superman's archnemesis Lex Luthor. The other films were Superman III (1983) and Superman and the Mole-Men (1951). However, the name of Luthor's company "Lexcorp" is seen on tanker trucks passing by in various scenes.

The first draft had Superman throwing Zod into the Phantom Zone, but Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer decided to have Superman killing Zod instead.

While coming up with the aesthetic of how the Superman physique should look, trainer Mark Twight said the he wanted the classic V shape - broad shoulders and narrow waist, which Henry Cavill naturally had, he just had to pack on more muscle to his frame. Additionally, he said he looked to Steve Reeves's physique in the film Hercules (1958) as a model for Superman, as to attain a Greek God ideal. Zack Snyder instructed Henry Cavill that his physique should look so great that in his shirtless scenes, he had to look like a "freak" and be in "absolutely crazy shape". Zack Snyder was subsequently very impressed with the results of Henry Cavill's 11 month hard training and called his physique "a great accomplishment". Henry Cavill said that even he was surprised by how big he looked in the film.

Since Superman is indestructible in the presence of our yellow sun, then how can he shave? He appears with a beard in some scenes, then clean shaved in others. No earthly razor could remove his beard, a problem which has been used as the driving plot of some of his more humorous comic book adventures.

General Swanwick's aide Carrie Farris is consistently addressed as "Captain" and wears accurate Captain's bars. The credits, however, list "Major Carrie Farris."

Lois Lane: How do you find someone who has spent a lifetime covering his tracks? You start with the urban legends that have sprung up in his wake. All of the friends of a friend who claimed to have seen him. For some, he was a guardian angel. For others, a cipher; a ghost who never quite fit in. As you work your way back in time, the stories begin to form a pattern.

Is Lex Luthor going to be in the movie?
No, his presence may be sensed in the movie or towards the end, but he will most likely be in a sequel as the main villain, much like how in Nolan's Batmans films Batman's greatest enemy The Joker did not appear until the sequel.
Will it be shot in 3D? 2D? IMAX?
Warner Bros has announced that all of its upcoming "tentpole films" (i.e Superhero films and other effects heavy films) will be released in 3D (source). Nevertheless, director Zack Snyder has expressed hesitance to shoot the film in 3D due to the technical restrictions in using the format, though he did not ruled out the possibility of using it for the movie at that time. (source). IMAX 2D cameras were spotted on set, initially suggesting that part of the film will be presented in such film format, akin to "The Dark Knight" and "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol". In July 9th, 2012, it was confirmed that it was indeed shot with IMAX footage, but it's going to be post-converted to 3D, akin to "Star Trek 2". Source. The footage of the final film that will be in this format is currently unknown.
How is Christopher Nolan associated with the movie?
Christopher Nolan co-wrote the story with David S. Goyer and is one of the producers of the film.
