I want to see Bruce pull the mask over his face like in BTAS so bad in live action.
I suppose Spiderman's mask has always been represented as merely lycra stretched over his head. It doesn't have an innate structure. Batman's is sculpted to some extent, and it tends to look very wrong if the correct placement of the ears, brow and nasal is disturbed.
Something like rubber or sculpted leather is probably inevitable in the cowl. That doesn't mean it has to be used throughout the suit, however.
