I doubt TDKR will be that memorable. While TDK is up there, I would say the same for SM2 then, Avengers, and a few others, too. But that doesn't mean they are classics.
I think it's safe to say The Dark Knight is an instant classic. TDKR has the distinction of blowing up a football stadium , but I don't know where it will stand with the test of time.
