* Likewise, Creator/ChuckNorris dropped out of ''Film/AmericanNinja'' because he didn't want to obscure his face by wearing a mask.

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed in ''Film/PowerRangers2017''. The Rangers' helmets cover their faces in battle, but open up while they're piloting their Zords (a couple of teams in the actual show could do that, but not the originals).

* Not transformed back, but after JackNicholson becomes TheJoker in the 1989 ''{{Film/Batman}}'' film, there are stretches where he puts on enough makeup to pass for normal.

** ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' heavily redesigned ComicBook/{{Ultron}} so that rather than having a static Jack-O'-Lantern visage, he now sports a fully expressive and animated face. Creator/JossWhedon defended the choice by saying that it'd be a waste to hire an actor of Creator/JamesSpader's caliber and then ''only'' have him do a voice-over.

Steve also ditches his helmet for the entire final battle, which is only explained in a deleted scene (the first thing he sees in Sokovia is graffiti of himself in full costume with "fascist" written over it).

--->'''Tony:''' (''to a whole press conference, live on national television'') I'm Iron Man.
** ''Film/IronMan3'' has an unusual variation on this; [[spoiler:Tony spends most of the climax jumping in and out of several Iron Man suits, which the BigBad keeps destroying.]]

** And in both ''[[Film/XMenFirstClass X-Men: First Class]]'' and ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', Mystique (now played by JenniferLawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) spend more time in human guise than in their blue skinned/furred forms. Lawrence does have more time in her blue form in the latter film, but still has quite a few scenes in her human disguise.

* The 1995 film adaptation of [[Film/JudgeDredd Judge Dredd]] has the tittle character spending most of the film without his helmet to presumably show a good chunk of the actor's face, This gets adverted in the [[{{Film/Dredd}} 2012 remake]] where Dredd never has his face shown.

His mask never comes off even once on either film. We only get to see his face as a child in some flashbacks, but his adult visage is a mystery.
** An interesting case with the Cobra Commander and Destro. In the first film, Cobra Commander (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt)
has his face shown.covered by a half mask most of the time and the visible part of his face is horribly scarred. When he finally removes his mask he only does so for a few seconds before exchanging it for an entirely new one that covers his entire face (we do get to see his actual face on flashbacks, though). In the sequel, his face is never seen (possibly to cover the fact that he's played by an entirely different actor) as he wears his iconic helmet all the time. Meanwhile, in the first film, Destro's face is always shown as that of a regular human right until the end, where he gets disfigured and Cobra Commander injects him with a compound that turns his face metallic. In the sequel, his metallic face is only seen for a few seconds behind a glass pane at the beginning, and never again.

Added DiffLines:

** Like ''The Winter Soldier'', ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' has several action scenes where the characters aren't wearing any costumes, as well as another pivotal moment where Cap removes his helmet during a fight. The theatrical posters also often had Cap and Iron Man maskless, but this was taken UpToEleven for the individual characters posters, where ''none'' of the Avengers had on their masks. And of course, we once again have our obligatory scene where Spider-Man's mask is knocked off during a battle.
** ''Film/AntMan'' plays with it. Scott actually does keep his mask on whenever he's using his powers (because in this continuity, the helmet is a life-support system, meaning he ''needs it to live'' while shrinking). However, when he has it on but isn't using his powers, he often flips up the face plate so we can see Creator/PaulRudd under the helmet. Like many of the examples above, the movie also has a huge number of scenes where Scott is not wearing the costume at all. {{Averted|Trope}} with Comicbook/TheWasp, who is ''only'' ever seen with her mask on in flashbacks.

* While the back-and-forth transformations between Ben Grimm and The Thing are a staple of early ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'' comics, [[Film/FantasticFour the movies]] spend a lot of time with a non-deformed Doctor Doom. The second one goes to especially great lengths to get Julian [=McMahon=] out of his metal mask.
