Pee-Wee Herman Overdubs <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i> Trailer

While piecing together trailers and clips of the upcoming Batman installment, we’re thinking most people weren’t hoping for “The Dark Knight Rises starring Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman and Pee-Wee Herman.”

After watching last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, everyone is left wondering why this work of comedic genius is only just now happening. Instead of Bale’s menacing Batman growl, Paul Reubens overdubs the trailer with his unmistakable and iconic Pee-Wee voice to provide a truly unforgettable voiceover.

Check out the video below. The Dark Knight Rises with normal voices (we know, we’re a little sad now, too) is in theaters and IMAX on July 20.
