What's the logic of watching comic book heroes on film when you hate their original looks so much?
This is like when people were saying Apocalypse should never be attempted in a movie because of how ridiculous he looks.
The characters have shined in their costumes for decades and don't require excessive tweaking to function in a film.
Batman wears "bat ears" as part of the whole Batman motif to frighten his enemies.
Thor wears chainmail because he's a warrior who's constantly going into battle with all kinds of enemies, so wearing armor makes sense.
Superman's cape is part of his whole "shining symbol of hope" schtick.
So, yes there are actual reasons for those looks, nice try.
