No, because he was designed to stand in the way from the real one saving Woody.
Similarly, if Batman has a particular function, performs that function, then leaves, MOS2 can still be "Superman's movie."
But that would take a sense of intelligence, tact, and boldness on the part of the storytellers. Let's hope for the best.
Yes but what if Batman is so awesome in his scenes, people leave the movie saying "Batman stole the show"? I'm not saying it will happen, but it happens quite a lot in movies - where the supporting character steals the show despite not getting that much screen time and focus.
