** Even if Bruce may be penniless, Selina isn't.

* How did Selina manage to steal Bruce's car by claiming to be his wife? Bruce Wayne was one of the most famous people in the city, and judging by the paparazzi's remarks, still pretty well known. It would like one of us managing to steal Donald Drumpf's car by pretending we are Mrs. Drumpf. Wouldn't the valet would have questioned her, even if she had the ticket?

** ...is Donald Drumpf not married?
** The only reason the average person knows what Donald Drumpf's family looks like is because he's an attention whore. The same could be said for any other rich/famous person talk and portrayed in the media. Yes Bruce Wayne is famous, but he's been reclusive for years. It's not that far of a stretch for Selina to convince the valet that she's his new wife who turned Bruce's life around and is bring him back into the `public eye or something along those lines.

** As for why no one disregards his orders, given that Foley is the favorite to become the next commissioner, they might go along with it hoping to score some points with the new boss and possibly be rewarded with promotions.

*** Speaking from about 6 years in the future here; the movie came out, the high heels still don't make sense aside from a throwaway scene that exists seemingly ''just'' to justify her wearing those heels.

** Foley's a careerist, publicity-hungry, and not exactly the finest example of a competent high-ranking police officer. He's cocky, over-confident, over-promoted and wants the glory of catching the most notorious murderer in Gotham's history over a couple of admittedly pretty daring robbers. He makes careless mistakes because he's careless and prone to making mistakes.

** That, or Alfred is still just imagining Bruce as he did when he disappeared for several years before the Batman first appeared in Gotham City during the first Dark Knight film. Only this time it's hopeless.

[[folder: What would Bruce live on?]]
* If Alfred is not imagining the final scene where he discreetly acknowledges Wayne in some café in Italy, then where is Bruce getting his money from? His money went away paying his debts and he willed the remnants of his fortune to Alfred. So how could Bruce Wayne now afford the lifestyle to pay a table for two in Italian cafés?

* Why is Alfred willing to put up with Bruce's self-imposed exile for ''eight years?'' If he's willing to leave Bruce upon his decision to return to the cape, why wouldn't he just threaten to leave earlier? I don't buy this version of Alfred sticking by Bruce's side for so long. I understand that he's Alfred, but cape or no cape...Bruce purposefully chose to live a damaged lifestyle. It's not like choosing to don the cape again would be any better than the eight year depression he just suffered. If anything, it at least gets Bruce out of the bed.
