Re: Fear. Chaos. Pain. Vote for your favorite Nolan Batfilm!
Sadly, I'd have to agree that we still need to wait for a trilogy where each film is universally hailed better then the previous. Even if TDKR has a massive fanbase and some who feels TDKR is the best of the three(like me), I'm not blind enough to see that TDK is the more universally acclaimed of the trilogy, followed by TDKR, then BB.
If anything, though, if another CBM threequel is trying to play some finality such as giving some kind of closure to a main character, then I would be shocked if TDKR isn't referenced, and especially if a CBM threequel tries to have a massive scope or become a bit more epic than previous installments.
