Default Re: In hindsight what changes would you do - Part 1

And Nolan did a huge mistake when he made "his" Bane having to wear his mask all the time. It limited Hardy's acting abilities a lot. Comic's Bane is a badass even without his mask. And Hardy would have been, too. Maybe even more than with the mask on.
The thing with Nolan is he has to have a valid reason for his villains to have their theatrical comic book elements, just like his Batman did with his theatrical traits.

Crane wore the Scarecrow mask to freak out people under the effects of his fear gas. Joker wore the clown make up like a war paint to intimidate people and to match with his cut smile ("Now I see the funny side. Now I'm always smiling"). Dent used the two headed coin because he believed chance was the only morality. Of course Bane wore the mask because he had to due to a physical pain.

Catwoman is the only one who stands out in this regard. Apart from her razor heels we're not given any validation for the domino mask, or the goggles etc. Ra's and Talia didn't really look very theatrical. It's why Ra's could walk into Bruce Wayne's birthday party and not draw attention. The other villains in their theatrical guises could never do that lol.
