    The perspective from Batman is that Superman and Zod appeared on the scene at roughly the same time, yes? So to him, you have these people who come from the same place, admit to coming from there, and most of them tried to destroy the planet while the other one seems to be taking what could be seen as a paternalistic attitude towards humanity, and that just because he's helping people now doesn't mean he's helping them for the right reasons or that he doesn't have some sort of agenda. He could see Kal-el and Zod as two methods to the same end: while Zod wanted to blow everything up and terraform the planet, Superman will bring humanity to heel and make earth a giant protectorate.

    So he doesn't know the character of Superman. He only sees a man who came from the same place and emerged around the same time as a bunch of conquerors, who explicitly answers to no government and has the power to shape the world all by himself, and who seems to have an agenda of taking matters into his own hands. It wouldn't be hard for an interloper like Luthor to give Batman's healthy suspicions a nudge in the wrong direction.

    To be fair he wasn't the only one. It's implied the government think this as well.

    ...Following their death, Bruce let all of the Wayne’s servants go, except for Alfred

    So a grieving 10-year-old kid is able to make decisions about people's employment?

    Well, now we know why they felt the need to include the death of the parents...again.

    They still didn't need it, should have saved it for a Batman solo.
