Will we see bat-drones flying around Gotham? Will Batman have a surveillance satellite? Will this be the crux of the conflict between Batman and Superman?

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
At the end of Man of Steel, Superman destroys a surveillance drone, so we know that this Superman stands against such technologies.
I don't think we "know" that at all. The only thing we can know for certain is that he is against such being used against HIMSELF.

We MIGHT be able to ASSUME that he is similarly against such being used against the populace in general.

You will never be forgoten Robert.

Thanks Cconn, for the avvy.
