I don't feel like they were close enough to have seen his face well enough to recognize him as Clark easily.

That's only a problem if Lois and Superman have a public romantic relationship. Kissing a guy in the heat of the moment in the middle of a life thretaening situation makes for a good story, but no one will assume that you're in a relationship just based off of that.

Simply have that never happen.

How does it not help? If they only think he vaguely looks like Superman, that's helpful. Especially if they go with the notion that no one he comes in regular casual contact with besides Lois has gotten a very good look at his face.

I think Goyer's over thinking it. There's a level at which people won't think much about it if you don't draw too much attention to it. Explaining it just makes people think about it. Writing your story in such a way where they don't think about it is better.

I'm not saying Perry couldn't figure it out. I think that it would be pretty cool, actually. But I don't think it will be the biggest lapse in movie logic ever if they never go there. As long as they don't outright say that Perry got a perfect look at Clark's face during the Zod thing, I doubt most audiences will even think much about it.

The world does not work the way you think it does:
