So I saw TDKR again yesterday (only my second time so far
) and when the prologue airplane scene came on I was thinking about something... Not only did Nolan perhaps want the audience to understand Bane better in that scene, but what if Bane altered his voice to get his point(s) across more clearly? I mean they are in an airplane, that high up, it would be considerably noisy. He seemed to alter his voice for certain situations throughout the movie (being loud during Blackgate speech, creepy quiet talking with Bruce in the pit, eerily sinister before killing Daggett), perhaps it was intended for Bane to sound clearer to make more of a statment to CIA guy? I don't know for sure I was just guessing, what do you guys/girls think?
Ive heard both comparisons from the prologue and the final cut and what you say could be very well true, given the idea of being in a noisy plane. Still to me, the final cut of the airplane scene was the only noticeable difference in Bane's voice as far as pitch. His tone throughout the movie fluctuated depending on his intent and emotion. It was almost like he was 'lighter' while he was in the airplane..if that make sense..not as brooding and dark, but I do think his sarcasm and condescending tone played a part in talking to the CIA guy.
Totally! He was absolutely toying with the CIA jerk from start to finish (and what a finish it was!
). You only hear the "real" Bane when he says, "With no survivors!" The "lighter" feel that you talk about is evident again when he tells his minion that he needs to go down with the plane, and the minion smiles with utter admiration and adoration and asks, "Have we started the fire?" and Bane lightly yet triumphantly responds, "Yes! The fire rises!" (cue the pounding drum line that followed
