I definitely enjoyed how it was set up in the film of Batman going through that smoke while Bane was going through the cops, criminals and the LoS guys to get to Batman. And, imo, "No, I came back to stop you." really defines that moment as it's true; that's essentially why Bruce Wayne returned: to stop Bane and the bomb then retire the cape and cowl once and for all.
And to go back to Batman gliding anywhere in the film, I can't think of any perfect place for it to happen in TDKR, to be perfectly honest.

I think I just want a bit more out of the Bane as an antagonist in the way that his flaws illustrate Batman's strengths. Both the final confrontation between Ra's and Joker involved dialogue dealing with their core conflicts. Some might argue it's too exposition heavy but it works for me. Bane might not have had as much substance other than the physical threat Batman has to overcome.
In a way, this sorta did happen though when Batman spoke about climbing the Pit, something Bane was never able to do that showed just how much stronger Bruce is than Bane will ever be.
