There comes a time
there comes a moment
when everything seems clear

we are settled
established in our routine
and everything seems clear

creatures of habit we are
growing accustomed to the tedium
everything seems clear

the routine of our lives
is not one of greatness
but everything seems clear

and then....

out of the ashes and rubble
from the dregs of our society
while we are so deeply mired
in filth and impropriety

a dark knight rises
and illuminates the earth (pun intended)
its a reawakening of life
a new beginning, a rebirth

like a phoenix from the ashes
a babe at mothers breast
optimism rekindled
negativity repressed

its the feeling of trust
that mankind will thrive
hope for humanity
and hope that all will survive

a hero can be many things
one who puts a cloak

Trader #1: This is a stock exchange. There's no money for you to steal!
Bane: Really? Then why are you people here?

John Blake: Not a lot of people know what it feels like to be angry, in your bones. I mean, they understand, foster parents, everybody understands, for awhile. Then they want the angry little kid to do something he knows he can't do, move on. So after awhile they stop understanding. They send the angry kid to a boys home. I figured it out too late. You gotta learn to hide the anger, practice smiling in the mirror. It's like putting on a mask.

Bane: We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you... the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere. Do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate, and freeing the oppressed! Step forward those who would serve. For and army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests, and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice. This...

Bruce Wayne: Why didn't you just... kill me?
Bane: You don't fear death... You welcome it. Your punishment must be more severe.
Bruce Wayne: Torture?
Bane: Yes. But not of your body... Of your soul.
Bruce Wayne: Where am I?
Bane: Home, where I learned the truth about despair, as will you. There's a reason why this prison is the worst hell on earth... Hope. Every man who has ventured here over the centuries has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to freedom. So easy... So simple... And like shipwrecked men turning to sea water from uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. So, as I terrorize Gotham, I will feed its people hope to poison their souls. I will let them believe they can survive so that you can watch them clamoring over each other to "stay in the sun." You can watch me torture an entire city and when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Ra's al Ghul's destiny... We will destroy Gotham and then, when it is done and Gotham is ashes, then you have my permission to die.

Bane: Behind you stands a symbol of oppression; Blackgate Prison, where a thousand men have languished under the name of this man:
[holds up a picture of Harvey Dent]
Bane: Harvey Dent, who has been held up to you as the shining example of justice.
John Blake: [to Gordon, at Blake's apartment] We're just going to keep moving you until we can get you in front of a camera.
Bane: You have been supplied with a false idol to stop you from tearing down this corrupt city. Let me tell you the truth about Harvey Dent from the words of Gotham's police commissioner, James Gordon. 'The Batman didn't murder Harvey Dent, he saved my boy then took the blame for Harvey's appalling crimes so that I could, to my shame, build a lie around this fallen idol. I praised the mad man who tried to murder my own child but I can no longer live with my lie. It is time to trust the people of Gotham with the truth and it is time for me to resign.' And do you accept this man's resignation? Do you accept the resignation of all these liars? Of all the corrupt?

Bane: Theatricality and deception, powerful agents for the uninitiated. But we are initiated, aren't we Bruce?

Batman: [on a rooftop, Batman turns away from Selina, then turns back and realises she is gone] So that's what that feels like.

Bane: Speak of the devil and he shall appear.

Roland Daggett: I paid you a small fortune...
Bane: And you think this gives you power over me?

Selina Kyle: I had no choice.
Batman: You just made a serious mistake.
Bane: Not as serious as yours, I fear... Let us not stand on ceremony, Mr. Wayne.

John Blake: Don't you want to know who he is?
Jim Gordon: I know exactly who he is; he's The Batman.

Jim Gordon: There should be a jury!
Dr. Jonathan Crane: This is not a trial. This is merely a sentencing. How do you wish to have your sentence carried out? Death, or exile?
Jim Gordon: If you think we're going to walk out on that ice willingly, you got another thing coming!

[from trailer]
Catwoman: My mother warned me about getting into cars with strange men.
Batman: This isn't a car.

Daggett: What are you?
Bane: I'm Gotham's reckoning.

Catwoman: I blow that tunnel open, I'm gone!
Batman: There's more to you than that.
Catwoman: Sorry I keep letting you down!
[pause]
Catwoman: Come with me. We can leave, and start a new life. You don't owe these people any more! You've given them everything!
Batman: Not everything. Not yet.

[from trailer]
Alfred: Don't worry, Master Wayne. It takes a little time to get back into the swing of things.

[from trailer]
Bruce Wayne: That's a brazen costume for a cat burglar.
Catwoman: Yeah? Who are you pretending to be?

Bane: [from trailer] Let the games begin!

John Blake: You made some mistakes, Miss Kyle.
Selina Kyle: A girl's gotta eat.
John Blake: Well, you got quite an appetite.

"You've given them everything" / "Not everything; not yet"
[from trailer]
Bane: Gotham, take control... take control of your city. Behold, the instrument of your liberation! Identify yourself to the world!

[from trailer]
Jim Gordon: [lying in a hospital bed] We were in this together, and then you were gone. Now this evil... rises. The Batman has to come back.
Bruce Wayne: What if he doesn't exist any more?
Jim Gordon: He must... he must...

CIA Agent: At least you can talk! Who are you?
Bane: It doesn't matter who we are... what matters is our plan. No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.
CIA Agent: [Pulls hood off to reveal Bane] If I pull that off, will you die?
Bane: It would be extremely painful...
CIA Agent: You're a big guy.
Bane: ...for you.

[Bane wrecks the CIA plane and grabs Dr Pavel]
Bane: Calm down, Doctor! Now's not the time for fear. That comes later.

[from trailer]
Alfred: You are as precious to me as you were to your own mother and father. I swore to them that I would protect you, and I haven't.

Check out the screenshot of the Dark Knight Rises TEASER Trailer at the bottom. Who is the guy seen in the background, who has been highlighted?

Knowing Nolan, I am sure its not a coincidence that the last shot in his TEASER, just happened to have some guy in the background that no one has any idea about. I think its key to the plot in the movie, and the clip was chosen very deliberately.

Who is the guy then? Any guesses.

My feeling is this is JGL, but then really could be anyone. The internet is already abuzz with speculations as to who it is, and some fans have already gone over the top and lost touch with reality and are going on to say that its Robin, while others saying its the Riddler.

Please feel free to speculate.

Gotham Begins to Crumble and Fall
The Dark Knight Rises - What we know, the interpretation of what we know and what the possible story may be

What We Know:-
1.    In the beginning of the movie the general public hates the Batman, and he is wanted by the police.
2.    This will be a fitting conclusion to the Trilogy
3.    It will be epic (never doubted that)
4.    There will be Bane and Catwoman, and Joseph Gordon Levitt
5.    If various rumours are to be believed we may also have Ra’s Al Ghul more likely in Flashbacks
6.     From Trailer we know that Batman needs to come back to fight the new evil as it rises, thereby implying that he “goes away” for a while
7.    From Trailer, Gordon is in a hospital badly beaten up implying that whatever the new evil is, has managed atleast one big attack where the minus Batman defence of Gotham has been badly bruised
