Snyder confirmed that fact in an interview with The Daily Beast, in which he explained that it was necessary to feature more of the Caped Crusader in order to establish his new character in the context of the burgeoning "Justice League" empire.
" ... [I]t's a different Batman than the Batman that was in the Chris Nolan movies, so we have a little bit more explaining to do—and you just had a whole Superman movie," Snyder told the site. " ... [Y]ou need to understand where Batman is with everything. And that's more toward the beginning, but it evens back out as it goes on."
Still, that doesn't mean that "Dawn of Justice" is entirely Batman's show, and the titular twosome will indeed have plenty of time to play off of one another throughout the flick, the director said.
"They're actually opposite sides of the same coin," Synder told The Daily Beast. "It's interesting because Batman's a man and Superman's a god, if you think about it in those terms. So their relationship is very contentious. What Superman sees as Batman's limits, Batman sees as Superman trying to control him, acting like an absolute dictator. ... Their conflict is based on each others' understanding of the other's weakness."
Like the previous trailer, that premise sounds pretty dark, but if anyone can play with that theme, it's Snyder. We'll see how it all shakes out when "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
