Yeah, yeah they would. Killer Croc suffers from a legitimate disease - epidermolytic hyperkeratosis. Anything else depends on his character background. Sure, he can't exist as some giant crocodile but that's a silly way to handle him anyway - unless of course he looks like a giant crocodile to someone injected with fear toxin. Gotham Knight shows how you could handle the character.

Clayface originally didn't have any superpowers. As a shapeshifter, yeah, he couldn't fit into Nolan's universe. But stripping all the versions down to the original origin story means he could.
