I think the author may be confused.

Seriously...I read all of my comics up in a tree.

I think he was pointing out that Bane isn't a "bad guy."

The...guy who hunted down all of Batman and Bruce Wayne's friends and allies, and eventually broke Batman's back...ISN'T a bad guy?


He's bounced back and forth between good guy/bad guy. He's a bad guy at the beginning who becomes good, who is then tricked into becoming bad, then good again, and (IIRC) he's now back on the bad side (again).

Same here. No problems at all.

Add another one. I really think most people are biatching just to hear themselves biatch on this one. Hell, even in a bootleg of the prologue where the sound is garbled to shiat by limitations of the equipment, I still fully understood him.

Torchsong: PizzaJedi81: cameroncrazy1984: So it's another shiatty batman movie that tons of nerds will see. Wahoo.

Hey, your little seen arthouse flick about the troubles of a divorce, bisexual prostitue and her nymphomaniac mother, drug adled father finding the long lost son she gave up for adoption, who lost a foot in a tragic boating accident, all while finding love with a widowed zookeeper with a bacon grease fetish comes out the same week, so maybe you go enjoy that while we enjoy our movie.

Crap. Someone already thought of that idea? I thought my screenplay was one of a kind! DAMMIT!!!


I'm relieved to see that the script I've been working on for the past few years, centering on a story about a professor who taught 17th century Latvian Cabinetmaking, finding true love by first befriending a young autistic boy on campus and then getting to know his mother, a paraplegic who can speak 7 different languages and play the pan flute with her ass, has yet been replicated by someone. I'm hoping to get it shot next year.

Sarah Palin's Conscience: Dalek Caan's doomed mistress: ArcadianRefugee: Muffled, sure. Critical? Meh. Just have him do his lines again and dub it back in, no?

And get Kevin Conroy to come in and dub Christian Bale while they're at it too, please. I cannot stand Christian Bale's Batman voice.

/Bane was a little muffled, but a dub over really would solve that pretty easily

Lord, I thought that I was the only one.

I find it completely ridiculous. There's no reason to sound that way.


He has to disguise his voice so people don't figure out that he's Bruce Wayne. Also it is more intimidating than talking like Adam West or Michael Keaton.

Is your lead black, too?


No, but it was going to star Sally Field as the divorced bisexual prostitute AND...thanks to CGI magic...her nymphomaniac mother. At one point I was going to have Field on Field action, and then I was just going to walk up the aisle at the academy, grab my Oscar for best screenplay, look at the audience and say "You're welcome, biatches!"

Apos: I heard him clearly. I guess I'm in the minority.


Assuming you've seen the prologue and trailer, I'm calling bullshiat if you're claiming to have understood everything he says. I picked up on about 80% the first time around and only caught some line after multiple viewings.

You understood that? Was it something about spending two years in an attic? Maybe it was "Attica", and that's why he's after Batman.

Wouldn't it be easy to fix this a bit in post-production? Filter the voice to make it a bit tinny and gravely, but sharpen it a bit for the sake of being able to clearly understand it? I mean, you don't even have to synch it to mouth movements.

It just seems like a 100% avoidable problem.

I watched the trailer yesterday, and I had no problem understanding what Bane said. It sounds great to me. Like a combination of Darth Vader and the Animated Series' Mr. Freeze. It's a good fit.

People are jumping all over this, yet no one complains whenever Benicio Del Toro speaks in any movie he's in? Come on.

It was my understanding that he grew up in a prison, and so he had to establish superiority.

Don't worry, I'm a Hollywood creative genius. I can save your script.

First off, change the widowed zookeeper to a Nepalese Sherpa, ditch the boating accident for a tragic beekeeping accident backstory and add in some explosions. Lots of explosions. We make the long-lost son a time-travelling cyborg, who's come back in time for sex. Then he blows up in the third act, saving the prostitute from a bunch of German terrorists and bam! Roll credits. It's in the bag, baby, I'll have my people call your people.

The folksy guy who does those Motel 6 "We'll leave a light on for you" commercials on the radio? I could see that. I stayed in one of those one night and it didn't seem much better than a prison.
 
2011-12-20 01:12:23 PM
I understood him perfectly well in the trailer. "When Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die." I did not, however, understand all of what he said in the prologue. I chalk that more up to the shiatty bootleg I saw and the fact that all the characters were hard to understand because they were mostly yelling over the rushing sounds of an open airplane.

Thanks, Cpt. Obvious.

My thing is that he doesn't have to sound like that. I that's the best he could do, then they should have had someone come in and voice over.

He's had a redemption of sorts (a 'face turn' if you will) in recent comics. At least as recent as the first two Secret Six series (the last DC stuff I've read in a while.) Sort of making him into a honorable mercenary type of character.

But, if history is any indication, the comic version of the character is going to morph into a closer match to the movie version so that people who they hope to lure into starting to read the comics won't be confused by the differences.

And, now that the Nolan trilogy is coming to an end, how soon until we get our Sparkly-Batman reboot, like we're seeing in the Spiderman movie? You know it's coming...

/also, Bane injects his Venom... Not by inhalation... But that's just a nerd-picking issue...

Gig103: It isn't any worse than gravel-voice Batman.


For what it's worth, that voice is not just Christian Bale trying to sound dark. It's a sound effect from the mic and speakers in Batman's suit (part of the back story that was never explained in the films.)


http://www.aftertek.com/batman-begins-batsuit.html
"The design of Batman's cowl is a balance of form and function. The microphones in the ears are combined with special earpieces in the cowl that give Batman superior hearing in the field. The microphones can also be used to amplify Batman's voice and broadcast it through a discreet speaker in the suit. This is what gives Batman's voice that distinctive, disembodied and unearthly sound."

Apparently he was only 'good' for about half of Secret Six. When it was cancelled (June 2011, this is from Wiki FYI) Bane and the others led an assault on Gotham City to take out Batman and the other heroes. A big battle ensues and they get stomped. The last shots are Bane getting into a police car (and he should be escaping).

ArcadianRefugee: Muffled, sure. Critical? Meh. Just have him do his lines again and dub it back in, no?


Probably what Warner's wants, and really not a good idea; you can get away with looping dialog in very small amounts or if a character's back is turned, but looping an entire performance is going to be obvious -like watching a spaghetti western.

BRILLIANT marketing stunt. Circulate articles that claim no one can understand one of the lead characters in a major hollywood blockbuster... then include a trailer in the articles.

farking BRILLIANT.

I didn't realize it until I was done watching the trailer thinking "I can understand Bane just fine..." They just got me. I watched the trailer because they tricked me into it (I didn't want to see any part of the movie until I came out).

Millions of people will see the trailer and get hyped up for the movie over this fake news. Awesome.

Smiths: Not trolling here but am I the only one who was bored by Dark Knight? Just went too long and could have easily have had an hour chopped off of it.

I enjoyed the first one more; Batman Begins was a great fresh start and all.

Something about The Dark Knight just annoyed me and bored me.


Yeah, I couldn't stand The Dark Knight. It took itself so seriously, but then it reduced everyone, including Batman, into complete imbeciles in order to make the Joker's plans actually work. I could see if the dude were planting tiny c-4 bombs in the shape of dolls or something, but he was planting tons of ginormous barrels that look like the toxic barrels from Doom in public places that have choked access points and are regularly checked, and that's only the beginning of it.

In the trailer, he sounds like a British Darth Vader, as I said in another thread.

In the prologue, he sounds like Neil Armstrong on the Moon.
 
2011-12-20 01:21:39 PM
Heard him just fine in that clip. The audio from the bootlegged prologue was something different; of course it was not the best quality, but there was also too much peripheral noise in the plane. I'm sure if they tweaked some levels or somesuch it could work.

I don't think it's unbelievable, especially when has a large gang and corrupt officials on his side.

In a movie, the villain snuck bombs onto boats and still was foiled.
In real life, a team of men obliterated the World Trade Center armed with only box cutters.

Which is more "face palm" inducing?
