Christian Bale on Ben Affleck and Batkid

He’s never been one to keep his opinions to himself, and Christian Bale weighed in on the controversy surrounding Ben Affleck's upcoming Batman role.

The “Dark Knight Rises” hunk didn’t sound too rattled to hear that the “Argo” star would be donning the Batsuit in the forthcoming “Man of Steel” sequel.

Bale explained, “I wish him all the best. 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.”

“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 but humiliating, at least what I went through, when you have to have someone help you out of the costume. That was my main piece of advice for him.”

Meanwhile, Christian also talked about the Make-A-Wish Batkid event in San Francisco for 5-year-old Miles Scott- “I just think it’s great. It’s a great day for the little guy. I just think Make-A-Wish and San Francisco did such an amazing thing to organize that. You just think of the delight in that little fella’s heart, running around doing that. Then also as someone who has played Batman, it’s great to see that the symbol of Batman is so much bigger than any one person, than any film, than any comic book, any TV series, that’s really what it’s all about. It’s irrelevant which actor is playing it, we’re irrelevant in that sense. But for little Miles to have such a great day is just delightful.”
