Because Batman Begins did such a good job of establishing Bale as Batman they could shift focus to The Joker/Harvey Dent.
Man of Steel needs to establish Cavill as Superman. Now, I hate to say this but I think it's more important for Cavill to have charisma and a screen presence than to be a great actor. This isn't Daniel Day-Lewis performing Abraham Lincoln. From what I've seen of Cavill he appears more charismatic in interviews and being charming around fans than his actual performances in movies.
I think with a good script/direction he has a chance to exude his natural charisma which would help his performance.
