I have long championed the idea of prosthetics for the cowl, but I'm not sure about the white contacts. Could work, but it wouldn't really provide that iconic "slit" look of the eyes in the comics.


And cool people care about Moon Knight.

I liked Huston and Finch's Moon Knight from '06, but Bendis' was god awful.

It's cool. I wouldn't mind shorter ears in this movie.

Don't worry. No one wants to see Batman with a strap-on

I won't rise to that!

I think the "chin strap" just represents the boundary of the bare jaw area. Obviously, the neck isn't attached, so the strap is in fact just a sliver demonstrating where it starts.

It seemed fine to me when Batman uses the detective mode in the Arkham games, and since his face is a lot more realistically proportionate than the comics, I don't think it would look too bad. As long as it doesn't just look like white contacts, and maybe has a bit of a glow to it, just enough to suggest a display he's looking at.

Well, I'd like to see them try it, at least. If it works, it works; if it doesn't, it doesn't. One option would be to have the lenses sometimes white, and sometimes clear. I can imagine some great shots of Batman standing, surveying criminals, barely visible against the sky or whatever and gone completely unnoticed by the audience until the white eyes light up.

The glow is almost manditory (if the white eyes are used).

I don't think it would look too bad, bearing in mind I only coloured in the eyes (not the eyelids or anywhere outside of that). I still think it would be possible to see his full range of emotion despite not being able to see his pupils.

Here are some options.

This would be a traditional cowl, without any black makeup around the eyes (think Adam West):


This one is pretty much how it's been done in live action since B89:


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.

...both of these are interesting. It wouldn't be bad if the gray were darker. I just do not want to see anything like TDK/TDKR on screen ever again.

These are all amazing. I'd go nuts if we got something like this in the film.

It's hard for me to take the white eye lenses seriously in live action, it comes off as silly to me and would take a lot to convince me, the manips prove it just looks silly.
