i just think using black eye make up just look more like a emo dress like batman for note I have nothing against emo just nothing . but i think he look more terrify with white eyes . it would cool if they put white eyes in arkham games as a option . and also i hope ben alfack won't use the throat cancer voice because it just dose not sound like batman. i hope they just have conroy do the voice or change the actors and he better not mess it up. okay where was i. i think they should use special effect for batman eyes or robin if they are going to put him there. what do you guys think.
White eyes as cool as they look in animated series and comics would look horrible if not done exactly right anywhere else. The arkham series obviously looks like a gritty real life batman. If they put white eyes on his default suit it would look stupid (although he has it in detective mode which looks nice). The movies are the same. A number of characters with white eyes don't have them in movies unless its essential to the character like Spiderman. The next batman movie they could try and pull of nite owl from the watchmen movie but I doubt it would work for batman. Ironman eyes get a excuse because he has a suit and if you see his normal eyes while in the suit it would look horrible. Ninja Turtles also originally had white eyes because of there bandanna but of course in film that would look horrible. In the Newest tmnt game the graphics were similar to the Arkham series and they lost the white eyes. Some characters don't work with white eyes in a specific Graphic in a game or in the movies. I think Batman is scary enough with out the white eyes. A Figure shrouded in darkness that resembles a demon with a voice too match.
@stormshadow_x: yeah I but I think in my opinion it would make him look like non human person
i would think he is just a person dressed up in a bat suit wearing white contacts or the cowl. He honestly does just look like a guy dressed up in costume, before when he was an urban legend who was unseen then sure that would be cool to see a silhouette with glowing eyes, but he let himself be seen close up in costume using gadgets so that non human aspect is now meaningless
The reason there isn't white eyes in games or movies is because of one simple reason: emotion. In the comics, batman's cowl can conform to him and he can give visual emotion with his eyebrows and stuff underneath the cowl because the artist can allow it to move. In movies that isn't possible. The cowl is in a fixed position, and this for the actor to convey the right sense of emotion to the audience, he'll need some sort of visual on either his eyebrows or eyes.
The issue with not having pupils in a videogame is that it makes it harder for the character to be expressive.
One could argue that the whole point of Batman is that he instills fear and appears as an inhuman monster to his foes, but as a gamer in control of Batman, you want to be able to relate. Have you ever tried talking to some wearing sunglasses? You can't see their eyes, and you don't know where they're looking, and what they're thinking. It's harder to read them. When you control a character in a game, you establish a connection to them and empathise. Being unable to read the intent of your character in a cutscene makes it harder to establish that connection.
As I said though, there are ways this could be used to the creators advantage.
