The Dark Knight Rises - Ending - Did Superman Save Bruce?

What's up guys, it's Trev back again to bring you another batman the dark knight rises video. This one is sort of one that I got to thinking could be a possibility. The bomb was about to go off within 5 seconds of detonation and it was still tied to the end of the bat's cable. That being said there is no way Bruce could have escaped the blast but what if Superman exists inside the Nolan universe and saved Bruce? I think it's a real possibility. He also might not have been able to enter the island for fear of them detonating the bomb. Well let me know what you guys think. I think it's interesting. Did superman save batman in the dark knight rises? Will it be shown in the man of steel 2013 superman movie that he did in fact save Bruce? This one will be discussing the ending of the dark knight rises and explaining from my standpoint the part where Bruce Wayne is seemingly killed when the bomb goes off. Later on there is a scene where we see Alfred in Florence Italy at a small restaurant and just as he alluded to earlier sees Bruce with Selina Kyle eating and they sort of make eye contact and smile. A lot of people take this to mean that Bruce actually did live and survive the blast while others think that Alfred is merely imagining it as he said he does every time earlier on in the movie. So the topic is, did Alfred actually in fact physically see Bruce there with Selina eating or was he just imaging it and in fact is Batman and Bruce Wayne actually dead? I think this was a fantastic ending to an amazing story and can't wait to see it again to sort of make more sense of it myself. From what I have seen so far the ending appears to be open ended making people decide for themselves whether or not Bruce Wayne himself lives on or is in fact dead and buried. So what do you think? Is bruce wayne actually still alive at the end of the dark knight rises or is Alfred just imaging it like he said he does every time? I believe it is purposefully made open ended so the audience can decide for themselves which ending they prefer. Also just because Selina is there I do not believe makes it conclusive that Alfred is in fact seeing them because Alfred did meet Selina earlier in the movie and knows that Bruce was going after her and involved with her sort of. Very interesting ending in deed. A lot like the ending on Inception with the spinning top and an absolutely monumental conclusion to my favorite trilogy of movies of all time. .

People, this movie is nearly four years old, and some of you still can't figure out how Bruce survived. Right before The Bat flew out over the bay, Bruce/Batman deliberately created an explosion so he could conceal his ejection from The Bat from public view (yes, The Bat had another vehicle). Then he watched as autopilot finished the job. Bruce also left behind symbols for the people he cared about to prove he was alive. He left a new Bat Signal for Gordon, a fixed autopilot for Fox, and Alfred saw him in person. Selina was wearing Martha Wayne's necklace, look closely. Also, Alfred was completely unaware of any intimacy between Bruce and Selina, so he would not have imagined Bruce being in Florence with her. That all but proves Bruce's survival.

Bruce fixed the auto pilot fews before in the end cut scene the guys checking the batwings system , the pearls were missing from the manifest which was reference to his moms pearls that meant dear to him And Alfred saw him at the end in the restaurant . Bruce left robin a device that navigated him to the batcave and Gordon saw the new bat signal put up when the old one was damaged . He is alive and retired

If you've watched the full movie, near the end Gordon or someone mentioned they FIXED BATMANS AUTOPILOT so, then the end where you actually see batman in his batwing flying WITH the atom strapped if you notice, batman Dropped the atom in the water and I know you might say "So what it still will reach 6 miles in 2.5 meters per second per second." But no.. with the water evolving around it, it kind of bounces the 6 miles to maybe.. 3 or 2 miles which kind of shuts it out. And every batman fan here knows batman has an eject button, he could have shot himself up in the air as it exploded since the blast radius was reduced. With that happening.. he called in his bat-boat don't forget about that, and he sailed back to his cave, also he IS alive for 1 it shows bruce in the end, 2. It shows the bat symbol fixed after it's been broken for years by an axe. And he gave that cop in the end a tracker to his cave to go and take up for him, now of course Robin won't have all the glory, because robin was a teen, this cop is an adult, so I know he said his names robin.. Idk why.. but he is either an adult in tights running around the city or he is Nightwing! But batman won't leave it to him, after a few years, or even less, batman'll make an epic comeback. Make sense now?

They have said and Christopher Nolan has said superman and all the other heroes don't exist in the dark knight trilogy. This is real life. Not flying aliens that shoot lasers.

I feel this notion is specious.  Nolan's movies are there own films away from the continuity the new Superman films are attempting to fabricate.  The Nolan Batman films strictly share themes and scenes that are reminiscent of specific comics, but were designed with a sense of realism (almost an oxymoron with a comic movie) in order to be taken more seriously than typical comic films.  Though I realize Nolan was involved with the Superman film, I think Bruce's elusiveness and intelligence is remarkable enough to make an escape and I believe this convolution correlates with the ubiquitous mystery that is Batman.

Before even watching the video superman couldn't have possibly saved batman in this movie since he wasn't even in this universe when the batman series was created with Christian bale's playing, it is known. that's way christian bale didn't play Batman vs superman because he couldn't since a new universe was "created" one where other superheros could actually fit in, maybe there superman can save batman.

It is a actually 10/11 seconds before the bomb goes off that we last see Batman, not 5 seconds. They never show him again after the counter is shown. I think he bailed out (no pun intended) after they showed him for the last time.
