He wouldn't have been in a wheelchair. Reeve's cameo would have actually had him walking in the film. It sounded really cool, actually.

This is what they had in mind at the time:

One last thing I am remembering; he said that he really wanted to have Reeve make a cameo, and that because they are shooting in Australia (this was his idea before Reeve passed away), he was going to try to do something similar to what was done for that SuperBowl commercial a few years ago; using CGI he was going to try to have Reeve make a cameo while walking! Really exciting stuff!

Here's the Super Bowl commercial that they were referring to:

Reeve in SR woulda just sealed the deal on how much a tribute this movie was. Disgusting.

Yeah, I think that would've been a very appalling and tasteless move, bordering on disgusting. And would've been distracing. Of course, I dont have any idea of how much of a deal they would've made out of it within the movie, but I would still just see it as a cheap trick to get some more PR. PR that might've overshadowed the actual movie. For a commercial it's fine, but for a movie it's tacky.

Giving Christopher Reeve a cameo (especially what they had in mind), would have been a very tasteful and classy move. The guy not only was (and still is) considered the definitive Superman but was also looked upon as a real life hero as well, for what he had overcome.

I don't see how a Reeve cameo would have been anymore distracting than Stan Lee appearing in Marvel films or Lou Ferrigno having cameo's in both modern Hulk films, etc.

Christopher Reeve's appearance on Smallville was even one of the show's highlights and most memorable moments.

Possible spoiler from Lego London Toy Fair:

Interesting in the context of MOS plot.

Wasn't there an alleged spoiler a long time ago about there being a Kryptonian (thought then to be Zod) on earth long before Superman made himself known, and this Kryptonian was studying Clark along with the CIA?

Did I dream that up?

Yes, I think so. Fyi, the link below will take you to a wiki article and it may be spoiler in the context of MOS plot - if it's true at all!

You didn't. That was a part of a plot breakdown I had.

Is this Tor-An on Zod's side or just working on his own?

Found another blog with a little bit more of info regarding the Lego sets that I'll spoiler tag but it seemingly confirms that Zod will have 2 costumes when on Earth and offers a slight description of the Black Zero ship:
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
he set numbers and titles for these sets are as rumoured: 76002 Superman Metropolis Showdown, 76003 Superman Battle of Smallville and 76009 Superman Black Zero Escape. Minifigures featured in the sets include Superman, Zod, Faora, Tor-An and a General Zod figure variant in some kind of armour. The standout piece in the range is in set 76009 – a large spaceship with an almost “bug”-like appearance…

Didn't Goyer mention in a very early interview for the film that they'd be setting up some big Kryptonian mythology as well into the film? If that's the case, maybe this supposed "new guy" could be a instrument for doing that as well.

Interesting that the set is called Black Zero Escape. It's definitely a part of the film we know nothing about. It must be after Superman and Lois hand in hand give themselves up to board. I'm assuming inside is where Superman is dropped to his knees coughing up blood. Also where he is reaching out of skeletons.

Mother of God.Just how many Kryptonians is Kal going up against!I mean its cool that well get a lot of action but Im worried that having so many kryptoninas means well be a lot of kicking-supermans-ass scenes and that will utterly depressin.Superman should kick ass not the other way around.

For it to get a rating this early, that means the edit is damn near locked or close to it.

I'm gonna make a guess that with the whole 'Escape from Black Zero' Lois is going to have a pretty instrumental role in freeing Superman from those skeletons or whatever. Didn't Amy reveal that she does wield some 'sort of laser'? Perhaps she gets a hold of some Kryptonian lance/gun weapon inside the ship and goes all Ellen Ripley in there and gets Supes out.
