And - it' still a comic book movie. Heroes and villains look this way in comic books. Superman could also fly without a blue suit, red trunks and a cape. And The Riddler on the other hand could ask riddles without a suit full of question marks. But they wear those things 'cause they are their "some kind of corporate design".
Yes, but the luchador mask should at least be questioned if someone wants to ask why someone would wear a mask to inhale medication whereas the luchador mask has no relevance to Bane taking the Venom through those tubes. That was my point.

And with was always shown that his gas could work outside of his mask from his wrist(as seen in the first meeting between Batman and Scarecrow), but the mask was just to mess with the people who does inhale that fear gas.

Of course, I could see why it's a matter of taste. I would assume the ones who wanted the Venom didn't like the idea of Bane even being badly beaten and had to use that medication to keep the pain at bay. I personally find that idea to be interesting that he's using medication to keep his pain at a minimum while Bruce fights through the pain whenever he goes into battle whereas being stabbed or shot at.

I also understand the idea of why the medicine isn't solely revealed because it was something that had to be halted and finally mentioned while Bruce was in the Pit, so unless there's an area after that mark to show Bane refilling or changing his medicine for whatever purposes, then there isn't a reason to even bother to show Bane's medicine at all and just showing what happens when a tube is broken off his mask.
