** In ''Film/SpiderMan3'', we get a token few minutes of ComicBook/{{Venom}}'s wonderfully creepy tooth-filled maw before he starts peeling back his "mask" every time he speaks -- probably to give Topher Grace some more face time.

** And in ''[[Film/XMenFirstClass X-Men: First Class]]'', ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' and ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', 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 middle film, but still has quite a few scenes in her human disguise.

** The ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' SpinOff plays with this. Deadpool does wear his iconic costume and mask this time, but there are also a lot of {{Flashback}}s showing a pre-Deadpool Wade Wilson, ensuring that we get plenty of shots of Ryan Reynolds' handsome mug. However, the ''marketing'' focused almost exclusively on Deadpool in costume, except for literally ''one'' poster where his original face is visible.

* In ''Film/TheFugitive'' the plot calls for Dr. Kimble to spend most of the movie in disguise; the filmmakers deliberately had him start out some distance from HarrisonFord's usual look, so that when he disguised himself by dying his hair and shaving off his beard he became the Harrison Ford audiences were paying to see.

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

** ComicBook/NormanOsborn keeps his face covered during his fight scenes but is sure to have his helmet torn away at the end of the climax, although it's done as a dramatic unmasking moment.

** The climax of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' has Peter removing his mask so that we can get a good view of his anguished screaming after [[spoiler: Gwen]] is killed. This is however justified, given that he would want to be closer to his girlfriend and was in denial about her death. The rest of the movie avoids this, keeping Spidey's mask on for the majority of the the film.

** In the comics, Hela wears a mask as part of her trademark CoolHelmet in order to hide her decaying face. In ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', Hela only has the mask in a select few scenes (eve while wearing the helmet), and is still [[AdaptationalAttractiveness quite gorgeous without it]].
** Much like the Batman example, Black Panther usually has white lenses on his mask in the comics. In the live-action ''Film/BlackPanther'' film, he has the white lenses, but they can be retracted to show off his eyes. His costume also has an InstantArmor aspect, meaning he can unmask at a moment's notice for scenes requiring dramatic acting.

** ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'' has a mask in the comics but Creator/BryanSinger could not find a suitable reason to give him a mask in the movie, not to mention, they had trouble making it look good in live-action. That said, Wolverine still has an iconic look out of his mask so the effect is not that noticeable.
** Mystique is played by world famous supermodel Rebecca Romijn, and has the power to take any form. She had at least one "cameo" per movie without make-up.
** Iceman has an [[IcePerson ice-form]] in the comics that kind of obscures his face. In the movie series, we never see this form until the end of ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' and even then, he ices up for only a few seconds to take down Pyro. He does ''finally'' ice up consistently in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', since by that point, the CGI technology required to pull off the transformation was now much less expensive.

* 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 DoctorDoom. The second one goes to especially great lengths to get Julian [=McMahon=] out of his metal mask.
