"Grumbled wine bottle! Napkins on pencils. The sky glasses with shoes!" If that gibberish sounds familiar, it's probably because you saw 'The Dark Knight Rises' IMAX prologue. The new Batman villain -- played with hulking menace by Tom Hardy -- is scary and violent ... and also a problem for viewers who like hearing things. Audiences, en masse, couldn't decipher what Bane was saying during the IMAX prologue, and -- according to reports late last year -- Warner Bros. executives were none-too-pleased with the turn of events. Director Christopher Nolan reportedly said at the time that no significant changes would be made to Bane's voice in post-production, and that still might be true. After all, maybe fixing the sound mix doesn't qualify as significant.
