Exactly. It's certainly no Spider-Man 3 type scenario. Not with the fans (who generally hated Spider-Man 3 overall) or critically and commercially, as TDKR is very critically successful and financially. Whereas Spider-Man 3 made a huge drop critically compared to it's predecessors.
It's just among the fans there's clearly a split on it. We never had this much disagreement about the movie compared to BB and TDK. Sure there was people who disliked certain aspects of each movie, but they were a drop in the ocean.
Those TDK days were some of my favorites on here. Nearly everyone was ecstatic. When it hit the billion mark at the box office I swear I could hear champagne corks popping in every Batman fan's house across the world lol.
