I think he gives up being Batman, and continues the work of his father, as Bruce Wayne. That would create a nice circle, in my opinion.

In Batman Begins, Wayne thought fighting crime needs a symbol that cannot be destroyed. In TDK, we see that the symbol actually makes things worse, and that you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
I tried coming up with something I thought would make a good Batman story and ended up with something similar. If the movie has some finality to it though, Bruce will either end up crippled, dead or exposed as Batman. Retirement leaves the door open.

I love that batsuit because it actually looks like body armor rather than cheap rubber.
Yep, looks like a real combat suit you can actually move in. The Batman Begins suit looks very bulky in comparison. This is streamlined, lighter, realistic for fighting, running etc. Same goes for the bat logo. I don't think there needs to be much emphasis on it with this type of suit.

I ignore The Last Stand, so it's hard to assign it blame.

EW Nolan interview:

The Batcave is back! So is the waterfall, lake, and a new plastic cabinetry that rises from the water with the push of a button.

Christian Bale on wearing the Batsuit for the last time:

My last day in the suit was also the last day of shooting for me. I was in New York, on top of a downtown skyscraper. The day begin with Morgan Freeman and then ended with Anne Hathaway. I got to say goodbye from within the batcowl.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

still on a 50/50 what to think of Bane here... could be epic, could be so crap it'll have people walking out of the cinema... not sure yet...

Catwoman does look hot though, not a typical costume, so going to wait and make judgement on that when i see it

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Put me down as another person who likes this version of the Batsuit. I think it really fits in well with Nolan's more realistic take. I don't think there's anyway that Nolan's movies would work as well if he went with a more traditional superhero costume style suit.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I know the reasoning behind it, but, to me, it looks too busy. But that is really a minor gripe. My favorite on-screen Bat-suit is probably the Batman Begins one (which is somewhat ironic, considering I hated it when I first saw it in '04/'05).

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I absolutely loved the Batman Begins suit...except for the cape...but still like the Returns suit, just not as much. I guess I get why some say it is too "busy'. It's the angles as have been pointed out. I don't mind them much. I kind of thought we might get another suit, but given the eight year gap thing it makes sense we aren't. Or at least it doesn't seem so far.

I can't wait until the figures are revealed.
