New concept art has just been released of the highly anticipated Batman v Superman, which is set to release in March. However, one image conjures up controversy: Was Christian Bale going to be Batman again?

The Bat-signal Superman stands by in the concept art is identical to the one used by Christopher Nolan through the Dark Knight Trilogy.

So, was Bale set to return as rumors indicated? Or was this concept art done before the new "fat bat" symbol had been designed? Why use Nolan's bat symbol instead of the more generic Batman bat symbol?
