With a new trailer on Monday and a six-minute prologue attached to IMAX prints of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, the world gotten its first taste of Tom Hardy’s villainous Bane. However many people’s first reaction was, ‘What the hell is he saying?’
Many haven’t seen this as a problem, as the footage we’ve had is great and shows that the really important aspect of Bane is his physicality, not knowing exactly knowing what he’s saying. THR reports that some at Warner Bros are really worried about Bane’s comprehensibility, but insiders suggest that while director Christopher Nolan plans to alter the sound mix for Bane’s voice slightly, there won’t be a major overhaul of his dialogue.
An unnamed source is quoted as saying, “Chris wants the audience to catch up and participate rather than push everything at them. He doesn’t dumb things down. You’ve got to pedal faster to keep up.”
Nolan has also suggested that the prologue may not be the best showcase of whether we’ll be able to understand Bane or not, as while the accent and mask will always obscure things slightly, the fact the prologue takes place on a noisy plane makes things even more difficult to understand. It’ll be interesting to see what Bane ends up like in the final movie, which reaches cinemas in July.
