I'd rather prefer they give us legitimate threats, without the need to fall back on Kryptonite. Superman has such a rich rogues gallery. Kryptonite is simply unneeded.

I also think they will fight at some point in the movie. They called the movie "Batman vs. Superman" years ago, that link used from TDKR at comic-con, etc.

I also think its wrong for people to say "Superman would throw him into the sun" or "Superman would incinerate him with heat vision" or "Superman would rip his head off". Makes me wonder if the people who say that even know who Superman is. He would never do that to a regular human. Yes, he broke Zod's neck, but he was just as strong as Supes and about to kill a family with children. 4 lives>1 life. It was necessary. Killing Batman to save himself is not something he'd do.
Here's the thing, he needs to do nothing of that. All that is needed is one well placed hit, and Batman is k.o.. Superman knocks out normal people regularly. But of course the Bat-God is immune to knock outs and they have to drag the battle out.

In the Batman vs. Superman fight, or fights, it will end up either being even or Batman will win. I think those are the only options because Superman winning seems to easy and obvious. He's cool because of how powerful he is. The "unexpected" outcome would be a regular human beating this unstoppable alien. It would also show Batman doing the first Batgod action in a movie.
Except, it's not unexpected anymore. Heck, after the line at comic con, I'm pretty sure everyone expects Batman to beat Superman. I'm pretty sure even before that line, people were expecting Batman to somehow beat Superman. The unexpected thing would be to actually have Superman trash Batman like it's nothing. And trying to beat it into Bat's thick and arrogant skull, that he is not an enemy.

Im not saying I think Batman SHOULD win, but I think if its not a draw Batman WILL win. Which I'm fine with, they've each won against fights against each other multiple times in the past.
If we believe Joe's knowledge of DC lore, Batman ever only beat Superman in Elseworld Tales, like Red Son or The Dark Knight Returns. Throughout the main canon Universe, they never had Batman actually beat Superman.

I am the HYPE!
