14How Batman Got Back to Gotham - The Dark Knight Rises
Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises finished off his grim-dark reboot of the Batman franchise.
Largely well-received, it did spark consternation across the internet for a series of perceived plot holes, one of which involved how Bruce Wayne managed to get back to
Gotham from the desert.
When Wayne escaped from the pit, he is essentially stranded in the desert with no money, no gadgets, and left in the torn clothes he is wearing.
There are a few credible theories about how the Dark Knight managed to get back to his city. It is not beyond the realms of possibility that the billionaire would have secret stashes of cash at different global locations. Perhaps he simply high-tailed it to one of those and then paid to get himself back?
In Batman Begins, Bruce Wayne had left his home behind and traveled the world learning to understand criminals. He must have picked up a few survival tricks during that time. It is hardly a surprising skill for the Batman to possess.
