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.
