(Plus ILM will be busy doing Episode VII
, Jurassic World
during that period -- and I don't think they'll be able to do significant work for BvS.)
And while WB did contract WETA for tax incentives, it also helps that the US/NZ dollar exchange is very favorable too. That's why they're doing so many movies now... a couple of shots here, half the work there, and so forth.
Also, Double Negative has offices in London and Singapore (as well as ILM), so I wouldn't be surprised to see them come back on too.
