Some people can understand Bane and some people can't. As many of you are aware, this resulted in some mildly annoying internet debate about whether Bane's voice would be tweaked in post-production [it will not]. Apparently, Tom Hardy shares our annoyance with the mask but for him, it was because he was the one that actually had to wear it. However, based on a few words from the actor, the mask didn't bother him too much. In fact, Hardy stated that eventually he got used to wearing the super-tight mask while filming The Dark Knight Rises.

Speaking at the premiere of, This Means War, Tom said: "Bane's mask is tight, actually. I got used to it, but you get used to anything really, in time."

Tom described Bane as "brutal" and "heavy-handed", but went on to say that he didn't remain in character for the duration of filming for TDKR and was able to separate himself from the role.

"I didn't get into a dark place at all. A lot of dark characters are easy to have distance from, it's something I feel comfortable with, I suppose."
