Nobody is really talking about TDKR any more though, especially around these parts. So it's a moot point. Even this place is dead with old threads getting swallowed up due to inactivity. If we're talking when the film debuted, it seemed like a lot of people were dissing the character and making him out to be a joke. The "oooh scary", "ooooh so intimidating" seemed to come from the die hard fans that ate it all up. You know, the types that will defend even the most ridiculous moment and chalk it up as creative/artistic liberties, or better, blame it on IMAX running time.
But anyway, ALL the people I have talked to hate Bane and his silly, silly voice. I guess it just depends on where you're from. Bane might be the OG on the west side of town, but here, people can't stand him.
