The Dark Knight Rises
-After taking the heat for crimes committed by Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face, Batman's reputation is now in ruins. Because of this, he feels he has to aid Gotham City in any way to help battle crime. But he gets a chance to be hero once more when a powerful new criminal named Bane hits the streets. He aims to expose who Harvey Dent really was. Since now Bruce Wayne is almost a recluse who hardly leaves his manor, this brings him out of retirement

-Cillian Murphy, who is playing the sentencing judge, is wearing a heavily tattered coat that looks like it has straw coming out. This is a nod to his alter ego, The Scarecrow
-Bane has a triangle shaped scar on the side of his head, which is visible during the stock exchange scene. Miranda Tate has the same scar on her back, visible during the love scene with Bruce. This hints at her membership with the League of Shadows
-The only Batman movie where Jim Gordon learns who Batman really is
-During filming, Tom Hardy, who plays Bane, had several very large tattoos on his arms and chest that had to be covered up

-Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway)'s relationship with her accomplice (Juno Temple) mirrors the relationship between Kyle and Holly Robinson in the comic Batman: Year One. In the story, they were prostitutes. It was even suggested that it might have been a lesbian relationship
