I don't think the Nolans know what a flash-bang is.
That or the thermite in his belt is old and its a nod to THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS.
Yeah....they have no idea of what's a flash bang

Alfred just assumes it really brazenly based on nothing. That doesn't make it true.
I know in comics , main characters are never in any sort of danger. This is a very damaged man , emotionally and phisically , and at the very first moment he goes back to the street to fight criminals . He is very much suicidal. That's what Alfred points to him. He doesn't know his limits. And this works , because Nolan writes these characters in a much more practicable and relatable world.
