The Dark Knight Rises: Hearing is believing!

Forget about the artsy and dramatic camera swings and zooms, Selina Kyle’s clunky dialogue (“There’s a storm coming” — really? Cliché much?) and Anne Hathaway’s shaky delivery… the real highlight of the third trailer for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises is the revelation that Bane’s unintelligible dialogue has been rerecorded!

Thank goodness that Nolan and Bane actor Tom Hardy backed off the foolhardy the idea of leaving Bane muffled for the entire movie. They were apparently hoping for some kind of artsy effect by making the villain so ridiculously impossible to understand, but apparently they realized that audiences would not flock to the film for multiple viewings if they couldn’t understand one of the main characters. It would have been cinematic suicide. But I’m sure the damning reviews would have been hilarious.

Now, if only Nolan could digitally replace Bane with a better foe from Batman’s rogues gallery…
