The MOS sequel is gonna have to overcome a lot of legwork, and that includes juggling a small handful of characters who've yet to be introduced and/or fully developed... including even it's main character, Superman.
There's plenty of cause for concern, as if the first MOS movie wasn't enough.
So speculative nonsense based feelings.
Superman is set up(much to the chagrin of detractors), and Batman, of all characters in comicdom with the exception of maybe spiderman, batman doesn't need that much introductory work at this point. This idea that things need to be done a certain way is a byproduct of the new hot thing. Before we decide that marvel's approach is the only way to go about it, how's about an open mind.
I suppose this is where I point to the successful X films.
"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
