Batman Vs. Superman Promotion & Batsuit Further Delayed

This should come as no surprise following the news that Jesse Eisenberg is shooting two movies before he begins filming Batman Vs. Superman as well as the fact that Jennifer Garner implied Ben Affleck doesn't begin until the Summer, but it's being said promotion for Batman Vs. Superman is being delayed.
A Forbes blogger Twitter user first mentioned that we might be getting the Ben Affleck Batsuit reveal in February - which didn't happen.
Then another update was posted by the user pushing the big reveal to March.
Now the latest is that, according to the Twitter user, Warner Bros. is delaying promotion on Batman Vs. Superman as a magazine source (Forbes?) said the Batsuit images might not be released in March.
The delay in production on Batman Vs. Superman is cited in part as the reason, and Warner Bros. hasn't been forthcoming as to why it's been halted. Rumors first mentioned that Ben Affleck was hurt, which Warner Bros. followed with the news of production delays. Jesse Eisenberg could also be a reason, as the aforementioned movies he is filming start now and run until mid-June. Or another possibility is there could be a new script as Ben Affleck's Oscar Award-winning Argo screenwriter, Chris Terrio, is now on board Batman Vs. Superman, with Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer now serving as executive producer along with DC Comics and Green Lantern movie producer Geoff Johns.
It's speculated that Batman Vs. Superman is now incorporating more Justice League characters in addition to Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Cyborg, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter are all currently rumored. It's even rumored that Zack Snyder is filming Batman Vs. Superman and the Justice League movie back-to-back.
Bear in mind Warner Bros. hasn't stated any promotion was to begin or any big reveals were forthcoming - or even the start date of production. The last official PR release from WB regarding the delay of "Batman Vs. Superman" only mentioned:
Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that the release of Zack Snyder’s& untitled Superman/Batman film has been moved to May 6, 2016, allowing the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story. The decision was made following the shift of the start of production to second& quarter of this year.
"Batman Vs Superman" has a newly announced May 6, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
