Christian Bale's Best Batman Costume Advice for Ben Affleck: 'Have a Zipper or Something'

"Extra's" Renee Bargh caught up with actor Christian Bale at the premiere of his latest film, "Knight of Cups."

Bale, who donned the cape and cowl to play Batman in the "Dark Knight" trilogy, told us the advice he gave to Ben Affleck, who is playing the caped crusader in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."

Christian said he told Ben, "If you're going to play a superhero, be able to take a p*ss by yourself, because otherwise it doesn't feel very superheroic.” He added, "So I just said, ‘Have a zipper or something.'"

Bale also chatted about teaming up again with director Terrence Malick for "Knight of Cups." Watch!
