The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
- A longer opening scene and introduction to Bane, where the character gives a speech espousing his ideology which echos that of Ra's Al Guhl in Batman Begins (2005);
- A longer speech by the Mayor, explaining the powers of the Dent Act and an elaborate police search for Batman which drove Bruce Wayne into exile;
- A scene at Wayne Manor where the Congressman tells Foley that he's next in line for the role of Police Commissioner, setting up the conflict between Gordon and Foley and Foley's obsession with arresting Batman for the murder of Harvey Dent;
- A conversation between Miranda & Daggett where she refers to the false power of his wealth, hinting at her true identity as Talia;
- A conversation between the two thugs that capture Commissioner Gordon where they debate killing him before taking him to Bane (explaining how Gordon learned Bane's name)
- A scene at Wayne Enterprises where Miranda warns Lucius Fox that Daggett is trying to take control of the company;
- A longer scene of Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox at the Applied Sciences warehouse. Fox gives Wayne the special leg brace which allows him to walk again. Their conversation also establishes that while the Applied Sciences equipment and weaponry is kept "off the books," the warehouse is not. This explains how Bane knows the location of the armory, as its location had not changed since the events of Batman Begins (2005);
- A longer conversation between Batman and Gordon in the hospital. Gordon warns Batman that the truth about Harvey Dent will eventually be uncovered sending the city into upheaval;
- A scene between Selina and Jen at their apartment implying they are both prostitutes, and that Selina is instructing Jen how to be a thief to get out of the hooker lifestyle;
- Scenes of Bruce Wayne trailing Selina to Miranda Tate's costume party;
- Bruce testing the leg brace in the Batcave, explaining to Alfred how it works to match the muscle patterns of his uninjured leg;
- A much longer scene outside the stock exchange and a lengthy chase scene between Bane, the police and Batman where they race around Gotham. The trimming of these scenes accounts for the somewhat abrupt day-to-night shift in the final film;
- An argument in the Batcave between Bruce and Alfred revealing that Bruce bought up all the land and homes surrounding Wayne Manor to prevent anyone from seeing him coming and going as Batman;
- An extended, much more heated confrontation between Bruce and Alfred. Alfred threatens to leave Wayne Manor if Bruce continues as Batman and Bruce argues that since Rachel Dawes's death, Batman is his only reason to live. Alfred confesses that he burned Rachel's letter and lied about her choosing to marry Bruce. Bruce accuses Alfred of betrayal before Alfred gives his speech about protecting Bruce's life, which does appear in the final film;
- A longer conversation between Bruce, Miranda & Fox discussing the reactor and Dr. Pavel;
- An extended conversation between Bruce & Blake where Blake warns Bruce that others will eventually figure out Batman's true identity. Blake also jokingly gives Bruce cash for cab fare.
- A longer scene in Gordon's hospital room. Gordon orders Foley to focus on capturing Bane, not Batman, then promotes Blake from beat cop to detective.
- A slightly longer love scene between Bruce and Miranda where she explains her scar--the same as Bane's--resulted from a mistake in her past;
- A speech by Bane when he delivers Bruce to the Pit Prison, explaining how hope is the cause of despair;
- A scene of Blake telling Gordon and Foley that Bane may have killed Batman. Foley then apologizes to Blake for not listening to him sooner.
- A conversation between Blake and Gordon where Blake plots out all of Daggett's construction work on a map of Gotham City before he confronts the construction workers;
- A much extended scene of Bane storming Blackgate Prison. Bane burns a picture of Harvey Dent and explains that Dent became the villain Two-Face after his injuries and encourages the city's poor to attack the wealthy and powerful before he destroys Blackgate, releasing all the inmates;
- A brief scene of Selina escaping Blackgate;
- An expanded conversation in the Pit between Bruce, his Prisoner caretaker and the blind prison doctor establishing that Bruce's back is -not- broken, but that he has a dislocated vertebrae. The Prisoner also explains the significance of Bane's mask as a painkiller delivery system;
- A scene of Bruce gathering supplies in the Pit as he prepares to climb out without the rope;
- A brief conversation between Fox and Bruce establishing that he purposely hid The Bat under camouflage on a rooftop instead of the Batcave to prevent Bane from finding it;
- A series of extended or omitted scenes showing how the city reacts to the burning Bat-signal on Gotham Bridge. Most significantly, Bane's army of mercenaries begins to panic and is demoralized;
- An extended battle outside City Hall. Bane orders his men not to attack Batman, determined to fight him alone;
- An extensive flashback sequence after Batman defeats Bane. Bane confesses that his devotion to Ra's Al Guhl stems from the League of Shadows rescuing him from the pit. A flashback scene then shows Ra's Al Guhl training Bane, who he has provided with a crude prototype mask to numb his pain;
- A scene of Talia openly taking charge of the League of Shadows to form a convoy to detonate the neutron bomb. She then floods the reactor core and, as in the film, Fox tries to escape, though even the finished scenes of fox in the film occur earlier in the script version;
- A longer argument between Blake and the Army blockade on Gotham Bridge. Blake argues with the commanding officer, trying to convince him that Batman has returned and battle has broken out in the city streets.
- In the script, after Batman harnesses the bomb to The Bat, he's never seen again--The Bat simply flies out to sea and the bomb detonates. The scene of Fox and the technicians examining the autopilot of The Bat then follows, with Fox realizing that Batman had ejected before the bomb detonated, and that Bruce Wayne must have survived the explosion.
