Will we see bat-drones flying around Gotham? Will Batman have a surveillance satellite? Will this be the crux of the conflict between Batman and Superman?

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
At the end of Man of Steel, Superman destroys a surveillance drone, so we know that this Superman stands against such technologies.
What was that satellite for. Good tv reception? :P

I don't like the idea of Batman using drones. I think his ego stands in the way. Also, he'd probably be paranoid of being hacked.
