Most likely this and it will probably be altered further through CGI. You can't introduce Black Kryptonite without the green stuff first.

I think that they probably wouldn't introduce black kryptonite until a sequel because it'd probably be quite confusing for people who aren't massive fans of Big Blue.

@htb106: Or they could introduce it at the end of the movie as a segway to the sequel

There's black kryptonite in the first place? What does it do?

I dunno I guess I'm a little sick of all the other kryptonites, even Kryptonite itself is kinda boring me. I hope they won't use Kryptonite as a plot point. Even better, make it such that Kryptonite affects all human as much as supes, just like in the comics.

@Gambit1024: According wiki:

It later made its first appearance in a DC comic in September 2005's Supergirl #2, where it apparently possessed the ability to split a person or a person's personality into two separate entities. In Supergirl #3, Luthor used black kryptonite on Supergirl, which caused her to split into two separate people, one wearing Supergirl's traditional costume, and another wearing a black-and-white version. Luthor claimed that he was given the black kryptonite by Darkseid, which had similar effects on Superman, creating an evil Superman. In All-Star Superman, which takes place outside of DC Universe continuity, black kryptonite makes Superman evil. In an issue of Superman/Batman, while remembering the abilities of the different forms of kryptonite, he exclaimed, "Black and I'm robbed of my sanity," accompanied by a broken wedding picture of Lois and Clark covered in blood. This suggests that in some form or another black kryptonite can negatively impact Superman's morals and behavior, twisting his normal state of mind.

It's supposed to separate Kryptonians into two separate beings, one good and one evil... kinda like what they did in Superman III, but I believe it was first named in Smallville

Also... that could just be debris... I mean not all rocks are the same size, shape and color
