comment Does Bane's voice change in this scene because of plot?
@Tom But surely, the majority of movie watchers will never consciously pick up on this happening or ever be aware of it. That doesn't mean that it wasn't an intentional directing decision, however. I believe Bane's voice change is in this same vein of subtext/foreshadowing. Given that -all- of Bane's voice was dubbed in post, and that -all- of his voice would have been thoroughly combed over in the movie with a fine-toothed comb (esp. w/ post-post processing), I wager that Nolan wouldn't let something "slip" so (relatively) drastically as the vocal/pitch change in this scene. Just my opinion.

@Tom Not necessarily. If it is intentional, I don't believe that it's meant to be an overtly "conscious" addition, but rather, a bit of foreshadowing and/or subtext. Like the scene with Bruce at the charity ball -- Miranda approaches Bruce holding a masquerade mask over her face as she meets him for the first time, before pulling the mask away. No doubt this is an intentional point of subtext and foreshadowing for her character, alluding to the both literal and figurative "mask" that she holds over her character and her ensuing deception toward Bruce.

comment What's on Bane's arms in Dark Knight Rises?
That makes sense, I suppose. But even still, with the effect being so blatant, and densely concentrated around the shoulders, I can't help but feel that it's more than just a prosthetic goof. Other scenes with Bane's bare arms don't suffer from this. On the other hand, however, I suppose it could be because of the water involved in this scene, and maybe it was too difficult to prevent from happening (and maybe Nolan even thought it added to the grittiness of Bane).

I rephrased the question to avoid the angle of comparing it to a question of whether Bane's voice was post-production'ed or not. I also added some further thoughts and analysis on the matter.
