Added DiffLines:

** The movie starts with Bruce having [[GameBreakingInjury a bad leg]] after his last encounter with [[Film/TheDarkKnight the]] [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker Joker]], forcing him to use a cane and retire as Batman [[spoiler:and the movie ends with Bruce finding a right candidate to be his successor.]] This is very similar to what happened to him in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Despite Harvey Dent's and Rachel's death being major plot points for the movie, no one so much as breathes a hint as to what happened to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and actively seems to go out of their way to pretend he never existed. [[ActorExistenceFailure This was done on purpose out of respect for Heath Ledger.]]

** Despite the night of Harvey Dent's death 8 years earlier being a major plot point in ''Rises'', the Joker is never mentioned. This was a decision on Christopher Nolan's part after [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim the passing of Joker's actor Heath Ledger]]. However, the end of ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' has SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker being arrested by [=SWAT=] teams. In the novelization of ''Rises'', it is revealed that Joker was made the sole inmate of Arkham Asylum (since it is abandoned after the events of ''Film/BatmanBegins'' [[spoiler:due to being in an area that was flooded with Crane's fear toxin]]).

* SoCoolItsAwesome: Can be either in-universe or meta, but the veteran cop's line, "Oh boy, you are in for a show tonight, son..." when Batman returns probably enters this.

* CastingGag: Matthew Modine, who plays Foley, had played a character nicknamed "Joker" in Film/FullMetalJacket.
** [[Series/PrisonBreak Wade Williams]] is the Blakegate Prison warden.



* TranslationCorrection: A variant. As having TwoFirstNames is an extremely rare phenomenon for [[RussianNamingConvention Russian names]], Dr. Leonid Pavel was given the more realistic surname "Pavlov" in the Russian dub (although, [[RealityIsUnrealistic as it turns out]], Russian people with the surname "Pavel" [[http://www.onomastikon.ru/proishogdenie-familii-pavel.htm actually exist]]). Due to the existence of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Pavlov a certain Dr. Pavlov]] in Real Life, this might have made it sound like Hollywood resorted to the FamousNamedForeigner trope once again.

** When Bane and his men attack the stock exchange, he fakes bogus trading in Bruce's name using the [[spoiler:thumbprint Selina acquired from Bruce's safe]]. In reality, the NASDAQ and the NYSE have the ability to quickly cancel trades if necessary, and Bruce would have been easily able to get off the hook for those fraudulent trades, especially when he can show that the transactions were done during a robbery on the trading floor with multiple witnesses seeing Bane and the robbers using its computer system for something. This fact is acknowledged in the movie, with Fox mentioning that they would be able to prove fraud and get the money back soon enough, but in the short term Bruce is bankrupted...which still doesn't explain why the Gotham electric company is so ''utterly ruthless'' that they cut power to his home only a day or two afterwards (it normally takes months of not paying bills for this to occur), amongst other numerous issues with this event.
** It is never explained how this automatically gets Bruce thrown off the Wayne Enterprises board and hands control of the corporation to someone else. (Daggett's plan). See discussion on [[http://lawandthemultiverse.com/2012/07/23/the-dark-knight-rises-i-corporate-shenanigans/ Law and the Multiverse]].
* ArtisticLicenseLaw: The Dent Act, a law which amongst other things denied parole to every inmate locked up in Blackgate and does away with separate prisons for men and women which was passed by the Gotham City Council. In real life, no American city would have this amount of authority over the criminal justice system - that belongs to the state governments, and it would certainly have been struck down by the courts for being unconstitutional.

In reality, the NASDAQ and the NYSE have the ability to quickly cancel trades if necessary, and in fact trading should have been suspended entirely as soon as the attack was public knowledge. Bruce would have been easily able to get off the hook for those fraudulent trades, especially when he can show that the transactions were done during a robbery on the trading floor with multiple witnesses seeing Bane and the robbers using its computer system for something. This fact is acknowledged in the movie, with Fox mentioning that they would be able to prove fraud and get the money back soon enough, but in the short term Bruce is bankrupted...which still doesn't explain why bankrupted, even though he shouldn't be liable at all under the circumstances (or could just refuse to honor them for entirely valid reasons).

actually do that. They can't just assume he won't pay right off the bat.
** It is never explained how this Bruce going bankrupt shouldn't have gotten him automatically gets Bruce thrown off the Wayne Enterprises board board, especially since he has a pretty solid defense for the trades being bogus. He still presumably owns his stake in the company, and hands control of the corporation would need to someone else. (Daggett's plan).

* HaveYouToldAnyoneElse: During his speech at the football stadium, Bane has Dr. Pavel give his credentials and explain that the fusion core is now a nuclear bomb. He then asks who could disarm it. When Pavel admits that only he can, Bane kills him to make sure disarming the bomb isn't an option.

'''Bane:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Or perhaps he's wondering]] [[GenreSavvy why someone would shoot a man]], ''[[LampshadeHanging before]]'' throwing him out of a plane!

** Bane is certainly GenreSavvy enough to not consider Gordon dead prematurely. Which would explain why after blowing up the bridges, he sends two men to the hospital to assassinate Gordon. Unfortunately, Gordon jumps them before they can shoot him.
