    Because movies generally are done in trilogies?

    Gives a nice beginning, middle, and end to the series.

    Until they relaunch it again. And we all know that will suck.

    They are going to milk that cash cow dry.

    Some of the most successful franchises in film history were built on trilogies. Hollywood follows the money.

    Exactly, because no one but Nolan can make a good batman movie.

    Where's the eye roll emoticon when you need it.

    It will be just the end of Nolan's Batman. They could still make more movies in the same continuity with a replacement director (and a new Batman, probably).

    If they do choose to relaunch it, then I hope they avoid a new origin movie. They should instead handle it like the Bond franchise.

    Bale's already implied that his run is done when Nolan's is. But I seriously doubt this will be the end of the Batman franchise. Hopefully they'll avoid the missteps of the Burton-to-Shumacher handoff this time around.

    Haha agreed. Nolans Bat movies are vastly overrated anyway. After multiple viewings TDK is about as entertaining as watching paint dry.

    Exactly. Threes are a cornerstone of all aspects of filmmaking. An oft-used Jean-Luc Godard quote used in nearly all screenwriting books:

    "A story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end... but not necessarily in that order."

    Threes are also a filmic compositional tool denoting power when blocking and staging actors.

    Also, the man may just want to move on to other things. What will it be, 6 to 8 years on the Batman film from pre to post? Not even including the press junkets. Batman is cool and all, but I'm sure he has other things he's itching to get on to.

    I thought TDK was excellent. But it does get a little boring upon repeat viewings. Though I think that is more due to the length of movie as oppossed to its quality.

    If it were truly entertaining, the length wouldn't matter.

    Pulp Fiction is two and a half hours, but I've never been bored watching it, and I've watched it numerous times.

    I don't think they're over rated but I'm not about to say someone else couldn't possibly make another Batman movie as good or even better than Nolan. Writers change all the time in the comics I don't see why that can't hold true with movie franchises, I mean it worked with Bond why not Batman?

    TDK is a bit of an odd case study in quality vs. entertainment. After I first saw it, my capsule review for anyone who asked me about was: "I liked it, but I'm not sure if I really enjoyed it."
