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.

Christian Bale's Summer of Being Awesome continues with a heartwarming story out of Ohio. Four-year-old Jayden Barber, who has terminal bone cancer, received a superhero welcome August 23rd in his hometown of Boardman Township, complete with a Bat Signal, Bat Mobile -- in the form of a $200,000 Maserati -- and an appearance by the caped crusader himself.

In even more awesome news, Jayden's cancer has since been declared to be in remission, which allowed the big screen Batman to fly him out to Disneyland -- a trip which included lunch at the exclusive Club 33.

Christian Bale has arrived at Aurora, CO's Swedish Medical Center to visit many of the recovering victims of last week's tragic shooting.

A movement has been circulating on social media networks for Bale to appear as Batman, but it seems the actor made a tasteful choice to leave the cape and cowl at home. More pictures of the visit can be seen here.

Colorado Shooting Update of the Day

Saturday brought inconsolable grief to families of slain theater-goers, as authorities began to identify the deceased in the shooting at an Aurora, CO movie theater. Authorities and eyewitnesses have also helped piece together an idea of how the horrific scene played out early Friday morning.

The Denver Post released an info graphic of the theater, which sheds light on alleged gunman James Holmes' path of destruction. The Post also compiled an image of the type of armor and weapons Holmes is reported to have used in the attack.

President Barack Obama, in his weekly address, spoke about the incident and offered the support of the federal government in bringing the perpetrator to justice.

Police set off a small, controlled explosion at Holmes' apartment, and the police department is "confident that they've eliminated all major threats inside the apartment."

Christian Bale, star of The Dark Knight Rises, is the latest person associated with the film to express remorse over the incident:

Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.

The suspect, James Holmes, is locked in solitary confinement. He has exhibited irrational behavior and remains on suicide watch, while other inmates talk about wanting to kill him.

National tragedies don't come without at least one group making outrageous claims as to who is ultimately responsible. Fred Jackson of the American Family Association wasted little time blaming the ACLU, gays and liberal churches.
