Having to spend long hours on set in a bulky costume makes ordinary tasks like using the bathroom or even texting a hassle. Bale isn't the first superhero who has expressed his frustration with his character's suit.
For example, Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man, shared during an episode of "Live With Kelly and Ryan" back in 2017 that it is a "mission" whenever he has to go to the bathroom because his entire body is covered by his costume.
"It looks amazing, [but it] feels terrible... going to the bathroom is a mission. You have to plan 45 minutes in advance," he remarked.
On Twitter, fans noted that Bale had given Affleck the same piece of advice prior to him taking up the mantle.
"Bale gave the same advice to Affleck LMAO.. ma boy was traumatized by his suit lol," wrote one fan.

"The only thing I said to him was to make sure to [be able to] take a piss without having anyone help him, because it's a little bit humiliating," Bale told Access Hollywood back in 2013. "You have to have someone … help you out of the costume in order to be able to do that. So that was my main piece of advice for him."
