Not unless they make a second set on the same movie, which won't happen.
Star Trek reboot, Wolverine, Avengers, Iron Man just to name a few, those sets are all incomplete. The studios seem to approve images only so far and don't allow the text to give away endings or even sufficiently describe the storyline leading up to the ending in some cases. It makes for disappointing cards, but I guess manufacturers have to play by the rules of the license holder.
I think the sketch card situation is just as bad, if not worse. Artists are limited to certain subjects and can't use actor likenesses or even draw any characters at all in some properties. Iron Man is a perfect example of that, you get a general version of Iron Man or a character from the comic. No sketch looks like it comes from the movie, the artists aren't permitted to use scenes or likenesses. Very boring, even for the better sketches.

Yes, I know a lot of collectors do not like the fact that sketches of the movie's characters or scenes are not allowed. On the other hand, I don't mind this at all. Most of the sketches I see from, for example, The Lord of the Rings cards and the Star Wars cards, are just that, portraits, which I have no interest in at all. I like sketches that are colorful or use imagination in other ways. That is one of the reasons I stopped collecting the Bettie Page sets too. How many different variations of her face do I find interesting? Very few, I'm afraid. But if other collectors like these, that's great. We all have different tastes, and at least sketch cards cover almost all of them. I also enjoy hunting through them on E-bay for that elusive sketch that I just MUST HAVE! Unfortunately, the cards are relisted so often that sometimes the search becomes just a tad frustrating. But again, on the other hand, sometimes relisted cards are reduced in price for a quicker sale and I snatch them up. So all is good in the long run.

Yes! There are stickers in Retail. There are 2 stickers in JUMBO backs. These are the 30 card rack pack. There are 30 stickers total. I picked up a jumbo pack at Target the other day for 4.99 and got sticker 20 and 30 and 28 cards!
