That's cool. But, much like DD, it makes me wonder how well the actor and stunt doubles would be able to see in terms of comfortably moving their eyes in any direction they wanted without having to turn their heads when the lenses are that small and that close to their eyes.

It's one of the reasons why I think CGI may be the better route if they don't want Batman to look like he's wearing some sort of goggles. And if they want to show that his eyes could somewhat be seen instead of straight up white, I think something like what was done in the GL posters could work...

I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair." - King Faraday

He’s much more of a working class superhero, which is why we ended the whole book with the image of a laboring Superman. He’s Everyman operating on a sci–fi Paul Bunyan scale." - Grant Morrison
