They also used it for some unnecessary moments like when Superman falls off New Krypton and that was a CG effect. I was like why? Just film your actor falling but I digress. I just hope for close ups they've used Cavill's head on the CG body. But as Gianakin said let's see the final result first.
Totally agree with this, CG is fine for motion shots from a distance but the closeups they had in SR looked absolutely awful. It takes all the tension and substance from a scene when it's made crushingly obvious that your protagonist isn't real.
The CGi in Avengers Hulk looks amazing by contrast, which shows that the technology (and artistic skill) is going in the right direction. He's a bright green behemoth however, and our eyes still find that much easier to accept than when we're staring at a CGi human - our vision is too conditioned to looking at real humans to accept a CGi one.
Until such time that they can render a human face and eyes in totally photorealistic style with no way of knowing the difference, they should only use CGi for shots from a distance where detail isn't such an issue.
