‘The Dark Knight Rises’: Christopher Nolan asked to re-edit Bane voice

Audiences have been complaining that the super-villain is inaudible in previews

Christopher Nolan has apparently been asked to re-edit the sound mix of supervillain Bane’s voice in The Dark Knight Rises.

Since the debut of a prologue to the blockbuster ahead of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and the release of a new trailer, fans have reacted negatively claiming that Tom Hardy‘s character is inaudible. The character wears a mask through which a drug is pumped that gives him super-strength.

But according to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros are said to be “scared to death” about “the Bane problem”.

Nolan has responded by saying that he will only tweak the sound mix slightly, rather than completely change it. An executive said:

Chris wants the audience to catch up and participate rather than push everything at them. He doesn’t want to dumb things down. You’ve got to pedal faster to keep up.

Hardy is joined as the film’s villain by Anne Hathaway as anti-heroine Catwoman, while Christian Bale reprises his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The Dark Knight Rises is released in cinemas on July 20, 2012.
