I'm sure there's more that my lack of sleep won't allow me to remember right now. And I know some of these things were done in the comics first, but its just interesting to see how much they incorporated from the show, especially things that people seemed so outraged bout and unwilling to accept in the past.
I too picked up on these during the movie. Funnily, my wife who watched Smallville with me kept pointing out how much Cavil looked like Tom Welling. And I thought there were definitely times, especially in the
Cavil really gave off a Tom Welling vibe.
The "Smallville" and "Birthright" inflected first half was definitely my favorite part of the movie. Part of me wished there was more of those scenes. But I guess that's what ten years of "Smallville" is for.
PS-I thought it would have been a nice nod to the show if they cast an African American boy for Pete and an Asian American actress for Lana.
