The "taking off the mask" thing seems to be a pattern. I know back when Birds of Prey was a TV show, Helena Kyle refused to wear a mask, which got under Babs Gordon's skin. (And it really made no sense. She was Batman's and Catwoman's daughter, for cryin' out loud, and both her parents wore masks, as did her mentor Babs when she was Batgirl.)
If you look at the Iron Man movie, they kept making sure to show us Stark's face, even when in the armor. Marvel's Hawkeye character was left with no mask at all, as was the female member of the Avenger's, who I think is called "Black Widow" in the comics, and I seem to recall wears a mask (not really up on Marvel's characters).
I'm thinking there have been other examples too, but am drawing a blank on any more titles right now. Anyway, it really wrecks a super-hero movie. It's like they want to shove the actor's face down your throat. Hey, we know who's playing the role. Let us see the character as they're depicted in the comics!
