Think Bane’s too small in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’? Tom Hardy says “Trust me. Trust Nolan”

We’ve heard Anne Hathaway respond to the criticism about Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, and now in an interview Cine Movie, Tom Hardy has a few words for the Bane doubters. Hardy bulked up to 190lbs to play Bane, but after seeing the first official photo (and set photos) some fans still aren’t convinced that Hardy will be faithful to the muscled wrestler they love in the comics. Here’s what Tom Hardy had to say:

I’m at 190[lbs]. Bat-fans want me to be over 220lbs. 400lbs. I’m like dude! Batman is like Superman, Spider-Man — he belongs to so many people. So many people love him. He belongs to them, and when you step into that kind of character, you are going to fail. And be judged. I’m human, and I do read things. I read the comments, and I cry. I can’t cry for everybody. I just give them a job, and be the best that I can be. Just trust me. I trust Nolan.

Thanks to Latino Review for the transcript, and Tom Hardy Party for the comparison photo.

What do you guys think? Do you trust Hardy and Nolan? I do!
