You just said it's minor and could not state a legitimate reason for implementation (see: Shikamaru's post below, he presented intimidation as a possible reason to implement white-eyes). If it's minor, and you recognize it as such, then what's the point of implementing it? Furthermore, just because the comics did it, it doesn't mean that it's always going to work out on film.

But the precedent was already set by B1989, Returns, and Batman Begins. Where it showed that one doesn't really need white-eyes to be intimidating/inhuman/demonic. Thus, one can conclude that it's not a central visual difference. Hence, that's why I think it's not necessary (the films I mentioned either played on fear of the unknown, or the demonic imagery through mannerisms/costuming).

I just think it's something that wouldn't translate well to film as opposed to comics.
