Advice of the Day: Christian Bale’s Tips for New Batman Ben Affleck

Christian Bale’s Tips for New Batman Ben Affleck
- -

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.

After teasing a pic of a covered Batmobile on Twitter yesterday, Zack Snyder finally revealed Ben Affleck's new Batman costume earlier this morning. Snyder/Affleck's Batman looks bigger and more muscular than Nolan/Bale's design, and the Batmobile is looking less like an urban tank.

Does this picture change anything? What do you think of Batfleck now?

The rumors can end, it's not Bryan Cranston. Instead Jesse Eisenberg from The Social Network and Zombieland is joining Zack Snyder's cast as Superman arch-villain Lex Luthor. He seems a little young, small and not bald to play the part, but then again I never thought Gene Hackman could do it either.

Rounding out the casting news, veteran actor, Jeremy Irons (from everything ever made) has been cast as Bruce Wayne's stalwart butler, Alfred. This is much less shocking and pretty alright in my book.

What do you think? Good Choices?
