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.

Superman: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana. humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."

Superman: "To catch them if they fall."
