Not to sound controversial at all, since I do love me some Batman eyes, but I have to ask: Is there still a need for them to be white?
I realize thats how they were drawn since his debut, and that they're meant to conceal his identity and all, but isn't it about time he had 'em changed?
The Flash doesn't need white eyes. Movie Batman doesn't need white eyes (although, given the medium, white eyes in a live action film would'nt really work anyway).
Two things would be accomplished visuallly by removing the white eyes:
1. We'd get to see more facial emotion from the character (rather than just from body language and dialogue) and
2. We'd be able to see his pupils look around the corner of his eyes at someone behind him (I figure this is a tricky manuever with artists in this situation).
Some would argue changing Bat's eyes would be like cutting Superman's iconic spitcurl off, but I myself wouldn't mind seeing wide open slits (a la Captain America) for his eyes, at least as a temporary thing.
Anybody agree? Disagree?
