Ben Affleck and Christian Bale once ran into each other in the Batman section of a costume store

Ben Affleck admitted to San Diego's Comic-Con crowd Saturday he's a little nervous about playing Batman in the forthcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

"If I thought too hard about the actors who played this part before, I couldn't take the job," he said, according to BBC News.

Luckily, incumbent Batman Christian Bale once had some wise words for Affleck when the two bumped into each other in the Batman aisle of a Los Angeles costume store.

"Make sure you can piss in that suit," Affleck recalls Bale sharing as each picked up a Batman costume for his son.
