Re: How do we avoid the third act curse?
Indeed. But I think that the reboot hysteria is also contributing to the problem, & will ultimately make it worse. If the studio goes into the 3rd movie with the mentality that, "Hey, who cares if this movie's good or not? We can just reboot"-we'll NEVER get quality trilogies. I think part of the reason why "Blade: Trinity" failed is because Goyer was more focused on the spin-off he wanted to make than the movie he was making.
