Wonder Woman rumored for Batman vs. Superman

Warner Bros. President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production, Greg Silverman, has touched on the rumor that Wonder Woman just might show up in Batman vs. Superman (aka, Man of Steel 2)*. Silverman stated,
"Wonder Woman is an amazing character. I think it’s a great opportunity both for box office success, but also to have an amazingly powerful female superhero." 
Now, this doesn't guarantee that she will appear in the film but at the same time it isn't ruling out a solo film. To me it sounds like they don't know what they want out of Wonder Woman before or after Justice League. Regarding whether Wonder Woman will have a solo film or not Silverman responded,
"We are taking it all very seriously and are trying to do a plan that’s respectful to those characters and maximizes the stories as best they can, so everything that has been speculated are things that we’ve thought about."

Silverman also tried to reassure moviegoers that Warner Bros. did make the right decision in casting Ben Affleck as Batman. The studio is sticking to their guns in stating that both Superman and Batman will be pushed to their full potentials and the characters will be done justice. He urges us to wait and see the movie because the script that Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer put together is what is important, not the casting.

Would I like to see Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman? No.
Why not? It seems like Warner Bros. is trying to pull a Marvel, once again, and include the scattered heroes in major movies to round out Justice League without having to do solo films for each hero. Think of how Black Widow showed up in Iron Man 2 and how Hawkeye showed up in Thor. Those minor inclusions gave Marvel what they needed to round out The Avengers. It's the same concept. Instead of having a solo Wonder Woman film, she could just show up in Batman vs. Superman. They could in theory do the same with Green Lantern. If the solo Flash movie actually does happen we could potentially see Green Lantern pop up so we don't have yet another solo movie about him.

Oh Warner Bros. and DC... you just can't catch a break.
