I agree. I think she was chosen and put in there to give Bruce someone to escape with since they blew up Rachel in the last film. But I didn't believe that Bruce and Selina made any connection of that nature. Their relationship seemed dictated by the plot needs. Kind of a means to an end.

I was wondering when Bruce may have jumped ship too. The bomb having 2 mins left on the timer means it must have been travelling pretty fast out of the city to get the 6 miles away or whatever it was, I guess that also means it has to have got 6 miles away from where Bruce was depending on when exactly he did jump ship. I'm not too bothered though, and I guess it is set up to make it seem like a surprise when he survives.
I was actually wondering more how he got from the prison to inside the cut off Gotham when he had no-one to call for help and how long it took him to get back.

I wonder whether he'd be allowed to kill Batman, if the studio wants to make more films then it's better that he lives, unless they want to recast or have 'Robin' take over.
I think that goes to my thoughts about Batman being a symbol and not a man, and therefore it doesn't have to be Bruce inside the suit.
