Christopher Nolan, director of the Batman franchise, has allegedly asked to edit the voice of Tom Hardy’s villain Bane in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’—the final part of the Batman trilogy.

Throughout Nolan’s final Cape Crusader flick, Bane wears a mask that has made his speech muffle. Warner Brothers, Batman franchise’s official international distributors, were left worried that moviegoers will not be able to understand Hardy’s villain.

During a preview of the film’s six-minute prologue last week, many critics raised their voices, concerned about the sound quality of Bane’s voice. They said it’s difficult to understand his dialogues and being Batman’s archenemy, he is the main character
who needs every ounce of effort made to Bruce Wayne/Batman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Inception’s director has responded to the requests on altering the sound mix on Bane’s voice. However, he reportedly refrained from making major tweaks to the quality, just some changes.

An executive stated: “Chris wants the audience to catch-up and participate rather than push everything at them. He doesn’t dumb things down. You’ve got to pedal faster to keep up”.

A new theatrical trailer of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ premiered that showed sneak-peaked into the action-packed thriller, which has spurred even more anticipation in the audience.

Nolan’s final part of the Batman sequel is set to hit theatres on July 20th, 2012.
