A point that has been noticed about the trailer.

Bane's voice has been cleared up(thanks to WB)

Perhaps it's a little too clear. A bit too much ADR now.

It doesn't even sound like the head gear is blocking his voice.

His voice now sounds disembodied like it's far away from him
I think all of the dialogue sounded disembodied-- because it is. We're hearing it without the rest of the soundmix the actual movie will have, and it's a little weird.

Rumor is that the "not everything' shot of Bats is actually Gordon-Levitt, not Bale

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I'll be watching a lot of the big summer movies as usual, but this is the only one I'm actually looking forward to. I like Anne Hathaway, but she does sound a bit too girlish to be Catwoman. Not a complaint, just an observation.

Shades of Jean-Paul Valley. Interesting if true.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I like that idea. One of the reasons I like this new trailer is it becomes clear that Knightfall is an influence. Not just Bane's presence but some parts of the story. Which I am glad otherwise I was unsure as to why he was chosen.

It simply sounds to me like his voice is being processed and amplified through the head gear. Which seems like a perfectly reasonable thing for it to do.

And if it DOES sound a bit more disembodied, all the better. Just makes him a little more scary and intimidating that way.

I agree. The voice does make him sound scarier. It's an interesting contrast to the Joker's high-pitched manic voice in TDK. Both are scary but in different ways.

BS. I know this because I've paused the trailer and seen with my own eyes that it's Bale.

People don't even put any effort into rumors any more.

There is a shot of Gordon-Levitt earlier, and the mouth is the same as the mouth in the cowl.

Holy... That was awesome.

Poor AVENGERS, they will be completely forgotten once this one hits theaters...

Now the question is, which film will be the event movie of the year?
- Nolan's Batman finale
- or Scott's Alien prequel
Cannot wait.
Neither. Skyfall will be the event movie of the year. A true Bond classic for 007's cinematic 50th anniversary celebration. That's my hope anyway.

And the thrilling joy ride of the Avengers will be fondly remembered for many years to come as part of the Greatest Summer of Movies Ever (even better than '82).

Me too. IMO it also makes him seem more mysterious and inhuman, which is perfect for this kind of a character in this kind of movie.
Oh, and I forgot to mention before, that now that we've seen more of Anne Hathaway's Catwoman I'm not longer nervous, she looks great.

Nothing against JGL, but isn't he a bit puny to be Batman? I mean, at that point you might as well get an actual bat.

In the 2nd trailer Bane sounded more menacing

You could tell that the mouth piece was blocking his voice from sounding normal.

Now it's like the mouth piece doesn't even exist. There's no obstruction.

They can't win. Either it's realistically obstructed and it sounds muffled so you can't understand him, or it's clear but loses some of the realism.

As for me, since it's a movie anyway, I'd rather be able to tell what he's saying.(although I understood him in trailer #2 as well, but I DID have a hard time understanding him in that five-minute intro plane scene.)
