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.
I'm sorry, but once you've got Batman in the title he cannot be confined to the role of a bit player in the cast, the entire selling point is that this is Batman and Superman on screen together for the first time. If Batman is only in it fleetingly then you've essentially wasted the entire concept and people will see it as nothing more than a marketing gimmick. This is why I feel it's too early for this movie, Man of Steel 2 needs to follow on from the events of film one, Batman can wait until a more status quo type of situation in there for Superman.
