    I have it in Spanish so lets see if I can translate it
    - Yo come from krypton
    - A world with more hostel environment than earth
    - A Long Time ago in an era of expansion
    - Our civilization traveled to the stars looking for new places where we could settle
    – This ship is one of the thousands we send threw space
    – We constructed outpost in other planets using terraform machines to make those planets inhabitable for our needs
    - During 100 thousand years our civilization flourished creating wonders
    – A controlled civilization was established
    - the outpost where abandoned
    - We exusted our natural resources
    – As a result the nucleus of our planet became unstable
    - At the end our military lieder General Zod tried to over throw the government but it was to late
    - your mother and I prevented that calamity from taking place and we ensured your safety

    I mentioned this a couple of days ago and other posters noticed as well. I'm pretty sure it was this image of Chris Reeve for a split second:

    Plus Clark hitching a ride to the Kent farm on a LexCorp truck is just too funny.

    If it was intentional, it was well done IMO.

    Gotcha. I do remember that exact scene so I'll keep a better eye out next time.

    They only place I saw a LexCorp logo was in the truck that was destroyed and split when Supes and Zod were fighting. It looked intentionally placed and very obvious.

    You also missed the way they imprisoned people in the phantom zone. Although it was more fantastical, there was still that 2-dimensional polygon shape that they were trapped in (a reference back to the Donner films). The robot was named Kelex (a refrence back to the John Byrne era). The film also seemed like they got some influence from Akira Toriyama's Dragonball manga series. There were refrences to how Kryptoninans would go to other worlds and take them over (very similar to what the Sayajins did). One of the Kryptoninans was called Nam-Ek, which could be a reference to the planet of the same name in that series. There was also one scene in the climactic battle with Zod that was not unlike what happened during a fight with Goku and Piccolo or Goku and Vegeta (Zod removed his heavy armor so that he was able to fly and fight better).

    EDIT: Oh, yeah, and there was kryptonite in the film. It just wasn't the green rock that we are all too familiar with.

    The military woman at the end who says Superman is hot was named "Farris." It's not "Ferris" but it is close...

    They are talking about the Kryptonian atmosphere, but that isn't an easter egg.

    You have to look at the definition of the word. There are two definitions of the word kryptonite. The first describes pieces of the planet Krypton that have become radio active. The second, which has become a modern day colloquialism is anything that is your weakness. In the film, Supeman's connotative kryptonite was the actual environment of his home world. Once he was immersed in it, his body (as a result of being on Earth for more than three decades) would reject it (as to why he was coughing up blood in one scene and choking in another). It wouldn't kill him, but certainly over time, he would become mortal.

    While that is right in regards to MOS, I didn't see it as a "new" kryptonite but more an introduction to the real thing if it's introduced in later films.

    An Easter egg is in intentional hidden message in a story or a film. The Kryptonian environment was Superman's weakness (or kryptonite) which was a subtlety (i.e. a hidden message or Easter egg).

    I can't agree that the Kryptonian environment is damaging is an Easter Egg. I'd say it's more likely to be foreshadowing of the damage actual Kryptonite will do him in the potential sequels. Plus, I think Easter Eggs have to little, decorative things, and this was too big a part of the plot.
