They could have done tons to make it more believable. Personally, I would have had Clark as a well-established low level Daily Planet worker from the start of the film. Everyone at the DP perceived him as a quiet, introvert. A loner. A nerdy researcher type.
Then when Superman debuts, no one would think to give a second glance at Clark, since everyone at the DP already perceived him a certain way.
