Possible, major spoilers!

Gordon in Hospital Scene
Gordon is in hospital for smoke inhalation after Bane sets fire to a building that Gordon and SWAT officers are in. Gordon barely escapes. Bruce Wayne has hung up the cape and cowl prior and goes to the hospital in his Lamborginhi as Bruce Wayne and before entering puts on a black face mask which leads to a fight with a Police Officer.
Bane Close Up Scene
This is Bane's first scene in Gotham and is when he arrives via boat at Gotham Docks. He and his goons take out the security guards and the one Bane takes out he leans over which is the screen close up.
Climbing the Well Scene
That is Bruce Wayne climbing the well and is set outside the Indian Castle although I don't think it is set in India in the film (unsure?) and is Bruce Wayne escaping from the League of Shadows with the castle being one of their locations and training facilities.
Bane vs Batman Scene
That is actually the climax battle where Bane has lured Batman to their lair for a final showdown and is in a warehouse near the docks I believe. Batman initially battles dozens of goons before Bane shows himself not scared of a fight and wants it 1 on 1. Catwoman actually arrives and assists Batman in defeating Bane and helping him escape. Catwoman fights goons while Batman battles Bane in a brutal battle. I'm told it gets really brutal and Bane IS taller or at least the same size as Batman even tough in real life Tom Hardy is smaller than Bale.
Updated with the following:
During the climax battle, Bane is wearing a bulletproof vest which I think he rips off during the fight and wears it on more than one occasion during the film. Update: First image of Tom Hardy in full costume hits the net

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christan Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Juno Temple and Josh Pence as a young Ra's al Ghul.
