I concurred with you. I'm just not sure whether the rumoured increase was after Snyder was hired and maybe Nolan? & the other two producers (the two wives) with their collective influences got the increased budget.
And maybe Jon Peters asked them for some toys...
Afterall, there are many toys and merchandising stuffs out there,so Jon Peters will be a very rich man!
