Re: should batman appear in the MOS sequel?
If there is a need to have him in the film, they should follow Iron Man as an example, and have Bruce Wayne appear in a post credits sequence. That option would allow for a direct connecting thread, and would not compromise the main narrative of the film.
*I will forgive the writers of Man of Steel, if Superman is the Enlightened Sun God he is supposed to be, in Superman vs. Batman. Quite simply, Superman does not kill. The writers of MOS failed to grasp this, to this film's detriment.
