Bane’s Voice Featured In The Dark Knight Rises Set Footage

Spoilers: The link below features possible spoilers for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. It depicts the Batman villain, Bane, giving a speech to spectators in a football stadium. Watch at your own discretion.

It is staggering to me the amount of footage we are seeing from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES given that the film is a year from release. We have official photos of both Bane and Catwoman, set photos of Bane fighting Batman, Catwoman riding the batpod and now we have videos of the Batman/Bane fight and the new video linked below of Bane giving a speech at Hines Field in Pittsburgh. The scene in question appears to take place during a football game given that the crowd seems to be part of the scene and Bane’s voice booms over the loudspeaker.

The main thing that I and seemingly everyone else can take from this video, is the sound of Bane’s voice. I don’t want to come down on it cause I don’t hate it and I’m beyond ecstatic that Hardy doesn’t sound like the incredible hulk spouting off brutish “I must break the bat” dialogue. I will say that the voice is- to say the least- strange. Strange in that I can barely tell it’s Tom Hardy and strange in that he sounds like a mad scientist of sorts. I know plenty of Batman purists may not be thrilled about the departure in his costume as well as the accent being very British, but I think it is a very interesting perspective- one that I’m intrigued to hear more of. It also remains to be seen if there will be some post production tinkering as well.

What are your thoughts on the sound of Bane’s voice in this video?

    It’s not that it’s British (he grew up in prison in the comics so his accent could be a mix of several) it’s that it sounds like drunk Ron Burgundy. I personally don’t think this is the real voice. They will likely dub something different latter. It was probably done so no one would hear what it really is yet. It sounds like he ad-libbed a bit at the end when he is talking to the hostage (you can hear it in another video. something like “who the hell?). That’s the nice thing about having a mask that covers the mouth, you can say almost anything as long as the movements match.

    I think in this case Banes actions speak louder than his words
