18Bat symbol

The Bat symbol at the beginning of each movie in the trilogy foreshadows something that happens later. In the Dark Knight Rises, the Bat Symbol is made up of cracking ice, and it symbolizes people falling through the icy river as they are forced to walk across it.

19Hospital scene

In The Dark Knight, during the hospital scene Aaron Eckhart spoke about a unique experience he had with Heath Ledger. He said that before lines were exchanged, Ledger would just walk around, in character, mumbling to himself in an odd manner. All Eckhart could do at the time was just watch him while still in character. This went on for several minutes, until Ledger got close to him. Eckhart felt compelled at this point to fiercely raise his hand up. Immediately, Ledger grabbed Eckhart's raised hand in an equally matched fierce manner. When the scene was over, Ledger, now out of character, told Eckhart “That's what acting's all about.”

20Rade Serbedzija

In Batman Begins, the homeless man that gets Bruce's coat was Rade Serbedzija. He is the same actor that played the father out for revenge in Taken 2 (2012), also featuring Liam Neeson.
