I'd like to know, what is your interpretation of that line?
My interpretation of the line is that he is Gotham's reckoning there to end the borrowed time they've been living on. This is obviously a reference to Ra's previous attack on Gotham. That line says nothing about whether or not Bane believes Gotham to be corrupt
