In The Dark Knight Rises, Bane reads commissioner Gordon's real speech in front of the cameras before releasing the prisoners. The speech contained the truth about Dent and was Gordon's resignation.

Since Gordon didn't actually read it as he wrote it, how did Bane even know it existed, and how did he get it?

1 Answer 1


He found it in the Pocket of Gordon's coat when Gordon was his captive down in the sewers. He orders one of his men to search his pockets and he finds the papers containing the speech before Gordon can escape.

He intended to read it on the ceremony in Wayne Manor at the beginning of the film. That's also when the senator gets abducted. Supposedly he still had it in his coat when he goes to rescue him at the bar shortly before entering the sewers.
