Christian Bale reprises the lead role as Bruce Wayne/Batman, with a returning supporting cast of Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as Commissioner James Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, and Cillian Murphy as Dr. Jonathan Crane/The Scarecrow. Tom Hardy plays Bane, an embodiment of Bruce Wayne’s fears who systematically deconstructs Gotham City by planting explosive charges throughout the city while eliminating Batman’s allies one-by-one in an attempt to lure Bruce out of hiding so that he can be executed. Aaron Eckhart appears as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, based on the character from previous films who now serves as Gotham City’s district attorney. Marion Cotillard plays Miranda Tate, a philanthropist interested in Wayne Enterprises who becomes Bruce’s love interest; Josh Stewart has a cameo appearance as Bane’s mercenary comrade Barsad; and Nestor Carbonell returns as Gotham City Mayor Anthony Garcia.
In the film’s epilogue, Commissioner Gordon reads aloud Dent’s last words: “The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.”
After the credits roll, there is one final scene. In it, Bane (Tom Hardy) is seen being carried away on a stretcher, while Talia al Ghul ( Marion Cotillard) tells her men to take care of him.
