Yeah, let's not go down there. I'm all for making Batman's methods murky or morally ambiguous. Nolan toyed with it. Frank Miller and Alan Moore fully embraced it (though for different means). Snyder is too tone deaf to pull that off with finesse.
I think you should wait for the sequel before you reserve judgement for how Snyder and Co. handle those sorts of themes.
