Like it or not, Ben Affleck is your new Batman.

But before he put on the iconic cape and cowl to film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," his predecessor, Christian Bale, offered him some advice.

His first tip: beware bathroom breaks.

"Be able to take a piss by yourself," he said, according to the NY Daily News. "I found it to be ridiculously unheroic between takes when I said, 'Excuse me, I need to pee, could somebody undo me please?' "

His second tip: that mask is really heavy.

"I took three people 20 minutes with tools in order to take that cowl off (my) head," says Bale.

Bale also recently admitted his initial reaction to Affleck being cast was jealousy.

Ben Affleck, Bill Maher, Nicholas Kristol, Michael Steele, and author Sam Harris got into what could only be described as a tumultuous continuation of Maher's comments on Islam from last week, with Maher and Affleck tearing into each other over the influence of fundamentalists in the Muslim community. "We have been sold this meme of Islamophobia, where criticism of the religion gets conflated with bigotry towards muslims as people," Harris began. "It's intellectually ridiculous."

"Hold on — are you the person who officially understands the codified doctrine of Islam?" Affleck, on the show to promote his movie Gone Girl, interrupted, and argued that criticizing Islam, as Maher and Harris were doing it, was "gross and racist. It's like saying, 'Oh, you shifty Jew!'"

What follows is a few minutes of Affleck and Maher going at each other and yelling over each other, with the occasional interjection from Kristol and Steele providing intelligent perspective on reformers in the Muslim world, smart statistical analysis from Harris about the spectrum of fundamentalism, and then another few minutes of Affleck and Maher yelling at each other.

"Your argument is, 'You know, black people, they shoot each other,'" said Affleck.
