Just imagine it: Zod/Faora has just thrown Superman into a wall/bank-vault; Supes looks badly beaten-up, with cuts and bruises, and his head is looking down, with disheveled hair. He's seemingly on the verge of defeat. But then he looks up, into the camera, with a fierce look of determination on his face, and a lock of his hair falls down over his forehead in the shape of the classic S-curl. Wouldn't that be a clever nod to the comics? I'd probably shed tears of joy if that actually happened.
That sounds so good, and plausible, that I wouldn't put it past Synder, who we know likes to use and pay homage to the comic books heavily. The s curl might seem a tad contrived if it was there the whole time in this realistic setting (for example the SR curl looks way too forced) so it appearing during a fight would be an epic touch.
