Seems like the entire supporting cast, from Anne Hathaway to Matthew Modine, is on display but the best thing here, especially to those that saw the movie's prologue that is attached to the IMAX screenings of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, is that you can actually hear and understand what Bane is saying. Gives those who are worried about Bane's audio (and there are many) some hope.

The most interesting aspect is Catwoman's very timely, very America Now speech and accompanying images that thematically tie into the class disenfranchisement that is currently cresting about the country.
