They didn't have a big backstory for the costumes in the previous movies. They provided some context, but didn't go about giving them a backstory like they did in Batman. Introducing a costume with a mask in the proper context wouldn't really get the "he doesn't need/want a costume/mask" conversation you see on these boards by the average cinema audience. I'm not saying it needs no explanation and that he'd just suddenly put one on, just that it doesn't need much in the way of one for people to buy into it.
