One Nifty Advice from One Batman to the Other

Bale and Affleck
It cannot be avoided that when an actor tries to reprise an iconic role, fan will always try to compare him to the previous actor. This is the same with Ben Affleck, who was cast in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."

Avid DC fans have been wondering for quiet some time how he will measure up to the previous Dark Knight, Christian Bale. During Warner Bros.’ Comic-Con panel, Affleck admitted that he had the same concern.However, instead of the comparison, Affleck revealed the off-color advice that Bale gave him for playing Batman.

It happened a few months after the casting news had been announced, Affleck came face-to-face with retired Batman Bale — in, of all places, a Halloween costume store, where Affleck was buying a Batman outfit for his son.

"I was in the aisle and there was this 'Oy', and I turn around and it's Christian Bale. He's the sweetest guy," said Affleck. "There he and I were standing in the Batman aisle of the costume store. I said, 'Look, man, you're the best. You got any tips?'"

Parroting Bale’s British accent, Affleck revealed his priceless advice: "'Make sure you can piss in that suit.'"

The best part of the story? Bale was also in the costume shop to buy his son a Batman suit. "He doesn’t just hang out [in the Batman aisle]," Affleck was sure to clarify.
