This would be the same as above, but with all white contacts. I'm not a fan. A person's natural eye shape just doesn't look right when trying to allude to the comic book look:

Stylized lenses, simple, flat white:

Stylized with a glass like finish:

Stylized, if for some reason someone might want the eyes to glow:

I think retractable lenses could work well for scenes where Batman might need to use night or infrared vision. Personally, I'd love to see one shot where all you see is a black silhouette and the gleam of the eyes. I wouldn't want permanent lenses, though.
There's something odd about the cowl in those pics which makes him look more like Cat Man or is it Wild Cat? I forget his name. Anyway, the DC character who is a boxer.
