That was probably the most
about that scene. He isn't going to make the same mistake as other villains, by prolonging Batman's life any more than necessary.
Also, another piece of evidence of how Bane is working WITH Talia (but not under her) is how Catwoman manages to sneak Lucius and Bruce out, but Talia somehow doesn't warn Bane about it
? Selina says, "Bane wants these guys for himself" and Talia must have assumed that Bane knew what was going on, and that he was planning to kill them (or severely incapacitate them, if Bruce was still meant to stay alive) them in his custody.
I mean, I don't think Talia would be as evil as playing games with both her ally and her enemy just for kicks.
