Re: Other great trilogies and where TDKR fits for you
I would put the LOTR, Star Wars (OT), Bourne, Toy Story and Back to the Future trilogies ahead of the Nolan Batman trilogy. Iron Man can't be a great trilogy (thanks to IM2) but it does have the potential to have its third film being the best in a superhero trilogy for the first time.
Alan Moore on comics:
They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
