It's not the accent or the distortedness that bothers me, it's how high pitched it gets in places. It just sounds really off, and doesn't fit with the mood the actual words are trying to create.

It makes takes me out of the moment, and makes me laugh.

Which is a shame, because there are moments like the 'Do you feel in control' line, where Bane literally owns.

Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.

'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
