If all the sound is put in after the fact, effects, music, etc, then they don't have to clean up Hardy's voice. Just turn the fucking background noise down a notch. If it weren't taking place on a loud plane this thread would be about 50 pages shorter.

A crummy misdirection? Sonuvabitch!
The dude sounds like he's swallowed a scarf.
I guess, but consider this, 90% of the film is going to have loud music blaring away and sound effects* alongside Bane's dialogue, and coupled with that partly digested scarf, it will be a somewhat frustrating time at the movies. It was kind of amusing watching the prologue and knowing nobody in the cinema could understand a word of what Bane was saying, and the argument that its on a plane with wind blowing and guns firing, frankly doesn't wash, because we could hear Carcetti's dialogue just fine.
Anyway, sorry for continuing the discussion about Hardy's voice, I know it's getting old now.
* I've been watching extras on the Alien anthology boxset, and felt relieved to hear Jerry Goldsmith complain about how most modern movies always have music through most of the running time and how directors just don't use silence anymore.
Chris Nolan said to EW: "I think when people see the film, things will come into focus. Bane is very complex and very interesting and when people see the finished film people will be very entertained by him."
Christopher Nolan: Professional Dodger of Questions. Seriously, I've read / watched enough interviews with the guy to know that he is an absolute master at that. He'll give this really elegant, substantive reply, and soon after he's finished, you realize he didn't actually say anything at all.
With the possible exception of the two different color tones, it looks exactly the same as the suit from TDK, so can't imagine anyone bitching that didn't already get it out of their system in 2007/8. Still, this is the internet.
Oh hey look, news we cover.
Saw Hardy in Stuart: A life Backwards last night. He plays a very broken man who's reaction to a horrific childhood essentially turned him into a sociopath, unable to control the rage when it comes on (what he calls his "black mist"). Based on a true story, I'd highly recommend it.
Anyway, Hardy plays Stuart as a mumbling, shambling man, who makes involuntary noises even when he's being quiet. And even though you really had to concentrate to pick up what he was saying he was absolutely mesmerising and just dominated the screen. This was pre-Bronson so he didn't have any of the physical bulk, but his presence was huge.
So after seeing that I have no worries about Bane at all. In fact I hope he kind of plays him like Stuart because that would be a fascinating take on the character.
Interesting article discussing Nolan's take on the Batman, and the author seems to conclude what we've been discussing for years: that Nolan is actually showing us Batman is a failure, albeit a noble one. (TDKR may change that, but I think TDK makes a powerful argument that Batman's presence actually makes things worse rather than better.)
Don't hate the suit (even if it is a tad busy), just the damn photo. What is it with these friggin EW covers and unflattering pics? And I thought WB owned them???
I think it's a pretty awful photo - but I'm guessing the source image isn't from an EW shoot, but a WB-supplied promo shot. EW likely 'shopped the empty background in, and decided to use a photo that wasn't high res enough to not blur (I have the print edition, and Batman's head is far less than sharply focused).
