Batman v Superman: 2 Films?

sg
This photo--supposedly taken from the end of the Batman v Superman teaser trailer--has been rocketing around teh interwebs, indicating that the upcoming film will be split into two films, released just five months apart!

Splitting these blockbusters into two films has, for me, always been a negative development creatively, more of a cash grab than anything else. That said, considering how much material is being jammed into Batman v Superman--the film debuts of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Cyborg, plus Lex Luthor, plus (rumored) Robin the Boy/Girl Wonder, not to mention, you know, Batman and Superman--it only makes sense to do this.

Judging by the titles, I can picture that the first film is mostly Batman with some Superman, ending with a big splashy intro for the other heroes, whetting audience's appetite for the next movie, a scan five five months later. This release plan was something Miramax did with Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, and while one could argue those films were overlong, I do remember thinking how fun it was after seeing the first movie that the second was just around the corner. If Enter The Knight ends with a quick debut of Jason Momoa as Aquaman, that would be very exciting, and could be really, really fun!

I believe this was declared fake seeing as the official website is batmanvsupermandawnofjustice.com not enter the knight. And also the fact that from the whole teaser trailer all they post is a crappy cell phone screen shot?
