Geoff Johns worked pretty hard to adapt all previous known depictions of Krypton into the current Superman comics. From the Silver Age uniforms to the Bryne era Green puffy robes, to the Donner Verse stoic scientists all of these variants of their culture made their way into the books. The DonnerVerse Fortress of Solitude was brought back and introduced for the first time in the comics was the Jor-El simulcrum. The crystals were given a name "Sun stone" crystals. They used them to build their world.
Say what you will about the Donner and Lester films but those films depiction of Krypton is one of my favorite things about the movie. I don't know why, but I get a true sense of awe and mystery regarding the ice world. Not to mention that John William's breathtaking Krypon theme is one of my all time favorite pieces of music.
