Re: Why does Batman leave his mouth exposed?

In real terms it's hard to imagine how a cowl made of fabric could be made or sculpted to form something of a scowl over the eyes as was done with Christian Bale's mask. Probably not impossible, but hard to imagine.

Having the lower face exposed could also be a seen as a means of expressing friendliness towards those not intended to fear Batman, such as innocent civilians and children.

Of course, he could just forego growling at them when he speaks.

You will be telling us next that you don't like the idea of the Batman lighthouse.

Why wasn't THAT in a Joel Schumacher Bat-flick??

George Clooney's smile is quite luminescent.

It probably inspired the Gotham Observatory in Batman and Robin.
