I wouldn't want them to be something he uses regularly...just in situations like we're seeing in that gif.
I'm not talking shark repellent spray or anything,but I want him to seem like he has a readily available tool for most every situation.
Stuff that will make people say: "where does he get those wonderful toys?"
I suppose he could just use the fins on his gauntlets though.
As I see it, the more they can implement (presumably) supernatural traits (from the criminals perspective), the better. Personally the character has always been at his most interesting the cloudier the details get with his motive. My favorite part of these films have always been how scared they were of Batman, primarily because they didn't know what
they were dealing with. It was like the adult version of the Boogeyman.

I don't know why you would single out claws here, as you might as well excise the entire Bat-Man presentation altogether. His garish design choices have never conflicted with his more private and subtle traits. They are part of his persona.
