Can anyone tell me where, exactly, the S.T.A.R. Labs reference is? Col. Hardy says Dr. Hamilton is from DARPA. That's the only reference I remember to Hamilton's affiliation(s).

I believe the compound where they held Lois Lane was STAR Labs, maybe?

From the Wiki: In Man of Steel, S.T.A.R. Labs was mentioned in connections with Cyborg.

From Collider: While the superhero character Cyborg is never specifically addressed in Man of Steel, the company responsible for the character’s transformation, S.T.A.R. Labs, is. Richard Schiff’s scientist character, Dr. Hamilton (also from the comics), is very briefly identified as an employee of S.T.A.R. Labs, and Goyer previously made the connection between the company reference and Cyborg, telling MTV “We make a reference to S.T.A.R. Labs at one point, that’s kind of a connection to Cyborg.” Whlie it doesn’t sound like Goyer and Co. have big plans for the Cyborg character anytime soon, S.T.A.R. Labs most definitely exists within the shared DC Movie Universe.

That's just it. I don't remember hearing those words at all when they introduced Hamilton. I was looking for it throughout the film and there was nothing.

If it's there, it's probably a sign somewhere.

Maybe Goyer's mistaken and thinking of a reference that was in the script but got cut. Or maybe he's thinking of something in deleted footage. Or maybe the reference is so brief and well-hidden that nobody's found it.

Apparently in the scene where Clark saves the people from the oil rig, the company owing the rig was Merrevale Oil. That company's CEO, Jordan Wylie, had several run in's with our favorite sea king, Aquaman.

My favorite Easter Egg remains the "Stone"/Cyborg reference in the football game Clark is watching. I'm not even a Cyborg fan, but I thought the way they did it was really clever.

A player was intended to be Victor Stone? Are you sure?

It's absolutely an Easter Egg.

Someone either here, or on another site, mentioned it to me and then when I saw the movie for a second time I was listening for it, and sure enough you can hear the football announcers on tv say "Stone" during a play.

They don't say "Victor Stone" but I think it's safe to assume Snyder knew what he was doing and that it is indeed Victor Stone.

I don't think they inserted Christopher Reeve digitally, though it would be cool if they did. I looked really closely the last two times I saw it, and I think it's Henry. Their mouths are their most dissimilar features; Henry's lips are much fuller. When he grimaces and curls his lips back into his teeth, he looks more like Christopher Reeve.

It looks more like the cover the Christopher Reeve collection, but I've seen it one more time, it's definitely Cavill, although, I think that they made that shot knowing that he would look like Reeve, considering those points that you said.

Nothing really new here from what's been mentioned, but still a nice summation on some inclusions.

seen MOS 7 times and have yet to hear "Star Labs" referenced. Darpa is mentioned, but not Star labs. I even checked for logos on Hamilton's jackets and those are mostly U.S. Government insignia.

There is one frame where it is a dead ringer for CR. I wish someone would ask Snyder, because if it was not intentional, then the resemblence is at the very least spooky!
