Has the audio for The Dark Knight Rises been tweaked? No, says Warner Bros.

2 min read

With the final chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy hitting our shores later this year, the fans are quite understandably excited for what the respected director has in store for the caped crusader.

Those of you lucky enough to have hit an Imax theatre for the rather excellent Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocol film will have been in for a treat then, as a short prologue of the TDKR accompanies the film, and happens to feature the brutal brawler Bane, in an exhilarating scene.

It’s just a pity that no one has any idea what he’s really saying, and Nolan wants to leave it that way.

The muffled, electronic staccato that is the voice of Bane has caused some concerns with fans, who have had issue understanding him, but while Nolan may not be re-recording any clearer audio footage for the character, and Warner Bros refuting any retinkering claims, reports are coming in that the ambient background noises and effects are being toned down so that we can at least hear his mumbling.

Maybe now we can finally find out if Bane really is Stephen Hawking on steroids.

The Dark Knight Rises releases locally on July 20.
