Yes but he's superman. The appearance of anything armor like would appear redundant on him. Even in the comics now they are making it evident batman's suit is a form of armor, with them often depicting the underlying armor material when the suit gets ripped. Frank Miller in the 80's arguably started that trend.

So people expect batman to not be a total maniac and going out there with no body protection. The advantage the comics have is that they are not bound by real world physical constraints so they can depict body armor that looks as flexible as spandex.
