Christian Bale has some advice for Ben Affleck who will take over the Batsuit in new movie.

The 40-year-old actor found it “ridiculously unheroic” to need assistance getting in and out of the tight rubber suit he donned to play the Caped Crusader in three movies, so has advised his successor to check he can relieve himself easily.

Ben Affleck portrays the iconic character in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, reports The Star.

Explaining the advice he has given Affleck, Bale said: “The first one was, ‘Be able to take a p**s by yourself’.

“I found it to be ridiculously unheroic between takes when I said, ‘Excuse me, I need to pee, could somebody undo me please?’”

And the Dark Knight star also told Affleck to insist his mask wasn't too heavy or uncomfortable.He added to The New York Daily News: “It took three people 20 minutes with tools in order to take that cowl off (my) head.
