And if they wanted "Rises" in there really bad, they could have made it "Rise of the Caped Crusader" or "The Caped Crusader Rises." Its just awkward that they completely changed the direction of the name after Batman Begins, but didn't do the same for this one.
the Dark Knight Returns would have been so much better then "Rise of the dark Knight"
he ran off in the last movie and now he returns, makes sense to me.
