Could be. Maybe done on purpose?
Superman fans have been concerned about the lack of Superman stuff and this statue at least for now has gotten many Supes fans to lower their concerns.
This has pushed the script rumors to Superman will be killed off in BvsS. So it may well be dissembling. Snyder is good at this. They could have totally hid the statue with a very large tarp.
The statue is too obvious as you say - a large majority of sites reporting on it now assume the film will be the DOS s/l.
I'm speculating and the argument that killing off Supes and bringing him back in JL 2 allows JL 1 to focus on the other JL members and cost less (really?) is out there. Don't buy it but that is my opinion.
