Did Selina know the secret identity of Bruce?

Because when she saw that Batman was back on the news she was like: "well what do you know?"

    The second part of your question is answered here, so I've removed it. The first part stands alone as a decent question Jul 18 '16 at 23:43

No, she didn't

The novelization confirms that she had no idea until it was too late (emphasis mine):


The infamous mercenary approached him.

"Let's not stand on ceremony here, Mr. Wayne."

Batman wasn't surprised that Bane knew his true identity. The man was connected to the League of Shadows, after all - he likely had heard of Bruce Wayne’s tangled history with Rā's al Ghūl.

Catwoman, on the other hand, was visibly taken aback by the revelation. A look of regret came over her face, as though she was having second thoughts about betraying him.

    Hathaway does a pretty good look of regret in the movie too. Oct 26 '16 at 11:11

    @PaulD.Waite I agree ;) But it's harder to talk about facial expressions (especially since it was apparently non-obvious to the OP), so I axed it in favour of the direct quote Oct 26 '16 at 15:21
