An ode to the awesomeness of Tom Hardy’s Bane voice in The Dark Knight Rises

An ode to the awesomeness of Tom Hardy’s Bane voice in The Dark Knight Rises

This post is dedicated to the awesomeness that is Tom Hardy’s Bane Voice. I will be talking about how he talked as Bane and how it sounded. And if that doesn’t tip your interest, maybe the lyrics to his songs will change your mind! So go on, check out Bane Talk or listen to ‘Rise’ and tell me what you think. This post is also for any fans of Tom Hardy or Christopher Nolan who want something new and exciting to read about their favorite actors/directors. (And I’m sure some of you want to know more about Bane’s voice. If so, these are the most up-to-date links I have for you.)

Introduction to The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises is one of the biggest movies this summer and with good reason: it has a stellar cast, incredible action sequences, and tells the story of Bruce Wayne’s (Christian Bale) return to Gotham City after being away for eight years. In those intervening years since The Dark Knight was released, we’ve seen Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), Bane (Tom Hardy), and John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) come into Bruce Wayne’s life in different ways. Now it’s time to see how that reality plays out when we step back into the shoes of Batman for his last performance.

Story of The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises is the last Batman film to be directed by Christopher Nolan, who has made 2 Batmans, 2 Dark Knights, and 6 other superhero films with an estimated global box office revenue of $2 billion. The story begins with Batman watching a news report showing Bane’s takeover in Gotham City as well as his subsequent broadcast message to the world announcing that he will lead a revolution and destroy Gotham so it can be reborn into a better city. Bruce Wayne has been living in the ruins of Wayne Manor ever since the death of his childhood sweetheart Rachel Dawes and is now a recluse. He has been designing and making weapons to keep up with technology while staying off the grid as a fugitive from justice as well as keeping his identity secret.


Harvey Dent (who is now Gotham’s white knight after Jim Gordon’s arrest) is kidnapped by Bane’s henchmen. In addition, Bruce Wayne’s trusted butler Alfred Pennyworth suffers debilitating wounds after being attacked by Bane’s men and left for dead in an attempt to draw Batman out of hiding.

A critique of populist politics can be seen in “The Dark Knight Rises.”

The Dark Knight Rises is a critique of populist politics that explores whether the public has an appetite for radical change, or whether they would rather stick to their conservative ideals. The Golden Age of Hollywood movies from the 80s and early 90s was one full of corruption and all-encompassing power struggles. From James Bond films to Die Hard, audiences were set on paranoid thrillers about how individuals were powerless in society and it was up to government institutions and covert organizations like the CIA to take care of people. On top of this fascination with those films’ themes, crime fiction continued striving for bigger thrills.
