Christian Bale passes on some Batman advice to Ben Affleck

“I wish him all the best”

Christian Bale has been talking about his successor to Batman’s cape and cowl, having apparently already contacted Ben Affleck to offer him some friendly advice.

“I wish him all the best,” said Bale in an interview with Access Hollywood. “He’s a very experienced actor and filmmaker and he’ll make it his own.

“Our thing’s finished, we’ve always declared it was finished and it should be passed on to another actor and it will be again after him.”

And as a man who has spent a long time trussed up in that suit, Bale has some practical advice to offer his replacement…

“The only thing I said to him is just make sure he can take a piss without anyone having to help him, because it’s a little bit humiliating when you have to have someone help you out of the costume. That was my main piece of advice for him.”

Batman Vs. Superman
will open in the US on 17 July 2015.

Can Affleck possibly live up to Bale's performance? Tell us, below!
