According to reports out of Cinemacon in Las Vegas, NV, several clips from the soon-to-be-released The Dark Knight Rises were presented to audience members, and it appears by several accounts that Christopher Nolan has buckled under the pressure from fans: Bane’s voice is now clear.
According to Jim Vejvoda over at IGN.com, “Bane was not muffled at all now. Indeed, I feel confident saying he was crystal clear now! So we can finally lay those “mumbling” memes to rest.”
Even-though Nolan, who isn’t one to let fans dictate the direction he takes his films in, originally said Bane’s voice would remain unaltered, it appears he’s given in.
Stay tuned, however, because we can expect a lengthier new trailer before The Avengers in most markets, so you be the judge of the vocal clarity. We’ll post the trailer when it becomes available online.
