If the success of a movie trailer is judged by the number of parody videos that it inspires, then the second Dark Knight Rises trailer might be the best movie trailer of all time. The first parody videos started hitting not long after the trailer officially emerged on the Internet. No surprise here, but many of the Dark Knight Rises parody videos have focused on Bane’s much scrutinized voice.
Bane Speaks! // A “The Dark Knight Rises” Parody – MrJonMoisan posted this parody video which focuses not only on the difficulty of understanding Bane but also the difficulty of understanding Batman.

The Dark Knight Rises Trailer, sweded – Bryan Harley sweded The Avengers trailer, so it’s only fair that he also sweded The Dark Knight Rises trailer.
