Christian Bale has offered Ben Affleck some words of whizdom before the "Argo" director puts on the new batsuit to film "Batman vs. Superman."

"The only thing I said to him is [to] make sure he could take a piss without anyone having to help him," Bale told Access Hollywood at an "Out of the Furnace" press junket in Los Angeles. "Because it's a little bit humiliating when you have to have somebody help you out of the costume in order to do that."

Bale, who played the caped crusader in Christopher Nolan's blockbuster "Dark Knight" trilogy, thinks Affleck is "a very experienced actor and filmmaker," so he doesn't anticipate any issues beyond the bathroom.

Either way, Bale reminded fans of the Warner Bros. franchise that it's not about the actor who plays Batman — it's about the character.

"It's great to see the symbol of Batman is so much bigger than one person — than any film, any comic book, any TV series — that's really what it's all about," Bale added. "And it's irrelevant which actor is playing it."

Affleck admitted over the weekend that it will be an impossible task to top 5-year-old cancer patient Miles Scott's portrayal of the caped crusader in San Francisco last week, because he was the "best Batman ever."
