No, they think the sole reason Avengers sits at a billion and a half(half of which being domestic) is because of throwing the heroes into one film. A billion is something else entirely(just look at the all time charts). A few original and or origin films up there outside of the Cameron lot.

This is what scares me about Superman vs Batman, I'm psyched but what if they think the solution is just those two on screen and we don't get a great product or they disgregard the start MOS had made for them and sacrifice Clarks journey for a Superman Batman spectacle. I'm scared and excited all at the same time cause if SVB doesn't work a potential DC universe on film might be ****ed all because they were greedy ****ers.
If you call them greedy, make sure you do the same for the other studio(s).
That includes fox.
