Bane’s voice is reportedly fixed in ‘Dark Knight Rises’ footage

Reports are coming in that the new footage from “The Dark Knight Rises,” shown this week’s CinemaCon, revealed an improved dialogue from the villain Bane. The masked villain’s voice had been a point of concern from fans after viewing the prologue attached to “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” at IMAX screenings.

“Just saw ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ prologue,” wrote Variety reporter Jeff Sneider on Twitter last December. “It was great but main criticism will be that it’s tough to understand Bane through the mask.”

Four months later and the reviews are now positive.

“I have some terrific news: I understood every word that Bane said. It should be noted that the theater I was in featured some of the most advanced technology in the projection industry, so I don’t know if they changed the audio or if it was just the presentation, but it did raise my confidence in that aspect of the film,” added Cinemablend’s Eric Eisenberg.

No word from neither director Christopher Nolan nor Warner Bros. on the changes which were so obvious in the footage presented at CinemaCon. The footage has not been leaked to the Internet at this point, but another “Rises” trailer is set to debut with “The Avengers,” which opens on May 4th.

“The Dark Knight Rises” stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman. The film opens in theaters on July 20, 2012.
