No problem

And yes. I think Batman escaped way before the countdown got down to five, but that whole scene was just for dramatic purposes. Much like how I don't think we see Bruce traveling from The Pit's location to Gotham City because it's for dramatic purposes when the audience sees Bruce next when he meets with Selina. As the viewer feels the same way as Selina does in that scene, when the bomb ticks down, the viewer feels the same way as those orphans and John Blake does when we see the bomb going off, destroying The Bat along with it.

My biggest problem with the entire idea of the bomb is that zero radiation was mentioned that could have still traveled to Gotham City, but I digress, lol.
