Pee-wee Herman Narrates ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Trailer With Hilarious Results

The Dark Knight Rises‘ hits theaters July 20th. This means we are now solidly into the “bat days” of summer. Jimmy Fallon played his part in hyping the much-anticipated movie with a sketch in which Paul Reubens uses his Pee-wee Herman voice to overdub all the voices in a ‘Dark Knight Rises’ trailer. Check out the simple but effective edit below.

It turns out Pee-wee is the perfect antidote to Christian Bale’s low Batman growl and Tom Hardy’s muffled Bane dialogue.

Reubens has a previous history with Batman — he played the Penguin’s father in 1992′s ‘Batman Returns,’ and voiced the role of Bat-Mite in the animated TV series ‘Batman: The Brave and the Bold.’

However, this has to be our favorite Bat-turn for the 59-year-old actor. In fact, we’d like to see him overdub a full-length trailer. Or –why not? — the entire movie.
