Did Christopher Reeve Get a Split-Second CGI Cameo in ‘Man of Steel’?

Has director Zack Snyder found an innovative way to pay homage to Superman's past in Man of Steel? While no one likely saw it in theaters, the filmmaker may have found an intriguing way to add Christopher Reeve into his big screen blockbuster in a unique shot with Henry Cavill. Take a look at this photo to see this Superman blockbuster pay tribute to the late actor.

      If They Really Wanted to Honor Christopher Reeve-They Shouldn't Have Made This OVERBLOWN Mess and They Should have Done a Movie That Makes Sence...Clark Works For the Daily Planet at The End-Over 75% Of Metropolis Was Destroyed or heavily Damanged and he's going to work There???? I Think Not!!!!!!

        I saw it right off the bat and both me and my wife just looked at each other for a second. I didn't want to sound like a nerd, then she said "Doesn't that look like Christopher Reeve?" I was amazed because she is not in to these movies like I am and she saw it. We saw it before hearing about anyone writing about it so it wasn't just in our heads.

          I noticed this opening night. And the second I witnessed this phenomena I cried. Many will never know just how much Christopher Reeve, a native of Chicago, like I, was born to wear that cape.

            @Fry-3000 Well, It wasn't put there by accident, that's for sure.

              Just saw man of steel, and noticed it also. Had a little tear in my eye , jk, but was a nice touch if it was deliberate

                @Celestialforthcoming I noticed Christopher Reeves whole face on there, when it goes to his face on there. Not just his lips.

                    I thought Snyder mentioned it already? It's definitely CR and agreed, awesome Easter egg the cgi team dropped in

                        It just hope it really is there, but I'm honest when I say I can't see it

                            About time MW reported this, the rumor has been going around since the films release...An I'm a believer that i saw Reeves for a few seconds during that scene and got a big smile on my face when I saw it :D

                            If Snyder confirms it, this IMO is the best easter egg in a film EVER

                                  @WalterWhite I agree. I think it's just a bit of wishful thinking. Honestly, I just don't see it. But because I don't see it doesn't make it untrue either. If it is true, I'd have to agree that this is one of the best easter eggs featured in a film. Personally though, it just seems like the angle of his face and his similar features playing a part in the illusion.

                                    yeah I noticed that the second time I saw the film, along with Ferris being the name on the shirt of the female cadet in the end.

                                      Whoa, never caught this in the movie. It seemed like a bit of a stretch, but after looking at the image a few times it becomes pretty clear. That's an awesome way to do a cameo!

                                        I've just now noticed it that moving image above. It's definitely there.

                                          These pictures don't even capture the face. Watch the movie again guys. With the thought in mind you'll see it.
