Well, with Bane talking about ashes when he isn't being completely incomprehensible, how could it not be connected to the Phoenix storyline from The Last Stand?

I'm sorry, but am I the only one who had no problem understanding Bane in the trailer? I didn't even realize it was an issue until I saw stories on this on the internet.

Honestly, Batman's "growl voice" is harder for me to understand.

Nolan says itís OK if you canít understand everything Bane says, and that itís part of the intended effect. I wonder whether thatís after-the-fact rationalization of a discovered problem, or if that was always the understanding. If Bane has important expository dialog that the audience misses, it may be a problem, but if it was written and directed from the get-go with the understanding that Baneís speech is difficult to understand, then it doesnít have to be a problem at all.

be that as it may, I simply didn't have an issue with understand him, I thought he sounded perfectly comprehensible yet creepy and scary enough for it to have an effect.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

You're not alone with being able to understand Bane. I understood what he was saying as well for the most part. He is talking through a mask that acts as a filter for his mouth as I think Captaindemotion pointed out a while back. I wonder if Nolan tested Hardy with a regular looking luchadore mask?

Maybe Bane should be dubbed by David Prowse


Bane- Catwoman you are part of the Occupy Gotham movement! Take her away!

Well, it's hard to talk clearly when Mahoney has pulled a prank on you by putting super-glue on the inside portion of your megaphone, causing you to walk around with the mouth piece stuck to your face.

For whatever reason I had this image of Bane yelling "Proctor!!!!" during the movie.


Thanks for the laugh!

Are you suggesting Mr. Freeze will be in this movie?
