Controversy has surrounded Bane’s voice ever since the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises’ prologue back in December. This has lead to many parody videos, and debate amongst Batman fans online. We haven’t heard about what Tom Hardy thinks about the criticism… until now. MTV caught up with Hardy and asked if he was concerned about the audience’s ability to understand his dialogue in The Dark Knight Rises.

Check out the full video interview, it’s great to see Hardy has a good sense of humor about the whole thing. If you’re curious about the online parody video he’s referring to, check it out after the break.
