Re: The Dark Knight Rises
You said some pretty critical things and bit back and accused people with more posituve opinions of having "blind faith". That's not the mutual informative fan discourse you are describing in your last few posts, so keep that in mind. Maybe going forward you plan on being a 24 year fan who just wants to chat Batman but that wasn't the character you were playing earlier and I'm sure the replies you'll get will be a lot different once the new more level headed Batman fan character begins. Is that a reasonable synopsis of past events? Can we move on?
Personally, I am of the camp that the comics already exist and they are already there for people to enjoy. An adaptation needs to find an essence of a story or character and explore areas of it that have yet to be explored. I trust that the visceral essence of Bane and his thematic relationship to Batman can still exist even if he has a different accent or justification for his appearance/wardrobe. I also like the idea of making against-type choices. A dude blows up a stadium and murders people in front of an arena- that is already so loaded. It is interesting that he may have this weak, intellectual/British accent behind all that mass. Ledger already created a creepy voice, maybe Hardy wanted to try a more human/against-type vocal choice.
