Default Re: Can Batman escape the "Third Act Curse"?

One-the majority of 3rd acts don't go over well. 2-LOTR was pre-written decades ago, so it wasn't put upon Jackson to wrap it up. Tolkien already took care of it. 3-not one movie that you mentioned was a COMIC BOOK movie, which is where the "curse" truly applies. I know there's nothing saying that all 3rd films are destined to fail/be hated, but I'm referring to a pattern that has existed throughout the history of the genre.

Michael Joseph Jackson 1958-2009. Gone Too Soon.
May he finally find the peace that eluded him in life.
There is only ONE Spider-Man. His name is Peter Parker. He's an adult, and he's straight!
