Some trivia that I thought was interesting and referneces I hadn't noticed:


When Selina Kyle disappears from a rooftop, Batman's remark "So that's what that feels like" is lifted directly from the Kingdom Come graphic novel. Even the circumstance is similar.

At the end of the movie when Blake (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is exploring the Batcave, his black jacket has a blue stripe that dips in the middle on the back of it. This is very reminiscent to the character Nightwing, who the first Robin eventually became.

Though the character's name is never stated in the film, Selina Kyle's (Anne Hathaway) relationship with her accomplice (Juno Temple) is highly reminiscent of Kyle's relationship with the character Holly Robinson in the comic "Batman: Year One." In that story, Kyle and Robinson had been prostitutes together and even had an implied lesbian relationship before Kyle became Catwoman.

During the motorcycle chase scene Bane is wearing a red helmet with black visor as well as a brown motorcycle jacket. This is the original costume Jason Todd took under his Red Hood persona, which is itself a callback to The Joker's original criminal identity.

When Batman is chasing after Bane for the first time after the stock exchange robbery an older policeman tells his younger partner to "sit back, you're in for a show". This is an almost direct quote from the graphic novel "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns."

The original story treatment by David S. Goyer was to have Two-Face as the principle antagonist for the film. Initially, at the end of "The Dark Knight", the Joker would have scarred Harvey Dent at a courtroom trial, setting up the third film. Dent's death and fall was put in at the end of the second film instead to set up the aftermath that follows.

Nice information there!

Similarly with the Batman disapering references, in The Dark Knight when Gordon says to Dent "he does that", this line is pretty much directly from The Long Halloween, love these little things in the Nolan movies! :D

The character Barsad, Bane's right-hand-man played by Josh Stewart, is a sniper and heavy arms expert. He is always shown wearing a bulletproof vest which has large bullets on it and a red scarf. This is a take on the Batman villain DeadShot, a character which co-writer David S. Goyer had expressed interest in bringing to the big screen.

Bruce Wayne's doctor visit in which the doctor lists off all the degenerative injuries to his body (lack of cartilage, scar tissue, etc.) and the use of a mechanical knee brace both are reminiscent of Kingdom Come, where an older Bruce Wayne requires the use of an exoskeleton to move due to years of physical wear and tear on his body.

This is the only live-action "Batman" film where the Bat-signal is never used.

This movie marks the first time in a live action Batman movie that Batman appears in daylight.

SPOILER: Marks the first time where actor Cillian Murphy has not worn some sort of a cloth or burlap bag on his head, in a film directed by Christopher Nolan. 

SPOILER: The coloring and shading of the cloth draping the Batman Memorial Statue during it's unveiling was similar to the blue colors of Batman's costume as traditionally seen in the comics.

SPOILER: In addition to the numerous elements from the "Knightfall," "The Dark Knight Returns," and "No Man's Land" storylines, the film also borrows from the "Legacy" storyline, which involves Bane becoming Ra's Al Ghul's successor and plotting with the League of Shadows to destroy Gotham City.

According to producers, the line "That's a lovely, lovely voice" was improvised by Tom Hardy. Bruce Wayne responding "No you're not" to Catwoman saying she felt sorry for Bruce losing his fortune was also improvised by Christian Bale.

Though not shown in the final cut, the fight scene on Gotham City Hall steps included an explosion that cleared the steps of all the fighters still alive. When filming the actual explosion, the heat triggered a fire alarm that went directly to the authorities; which caused production to stop for more than 30 minutes while the film staff cleared everything with the police and fire marshal when they arrived.

Cameo (Miranda Nolan): The cousin of writer-director Christopher Nolan and co-writer Jonathan Nolan appears as the maid gossiping about Bruce Wayne.
