Logically this film is a MOS sequel with a guest appearance from Batman.
If this is a full out Versus film someone will be painted in a bad light. Someone will lose.
There needs to be a powerful villain or army of villains.
Goyer said Superman will be realized. The WB say that there will be a face off. Snyder put a Worlds Finest logo.
All those three scenarios conflict with each other.
Because, like I said before, they want to have their cake and eat it. Their intent, I think, is to stuff quite a bit into just one movie, which will be a pretty daunting task especially if this thing clocks under three hours.

He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up.”
