Re: Can Batman escape the "Third Act Curse"?
Toy Story 3, not only one of the best, if not the best 3rd film in a series, but one of the best sequels of all time. It built on the themes of the previous films while doing it's own thing as a stand-alone feature (though it works best as a sequel, IMO). The result is a very funny and often touching conclusion to the trilogy.
There's nothing to suggest that Nolan wont be approaching Batman 3 in a similar manner.
