** 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.

* The 1995 film adaptation of [[Film/JudgeDredd Judge Dress]] 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.

* Storm Shadow rarely wears his ninja mask in both ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'' and [[Film/GIJoeRetaliation its sequel]]. Even when he does wear his mask at certain scenes, he'd take his time to take it off when facing Snake Eyes.

** ''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, or they keep falling apart.]]
** In both ''Film/{{Hulk}}'' and ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'', we get a lot of scenes showing Bruce Banner (Creator/EricBana in the first film, Creator/EdwardNorton in the second) untransformed, while the Hulk himself has less screentime. Ditto for Creator/TimRoth's Emil Blonsky in ''The Incredible Hulk'', who looks like a normal human for most of the film and only transforms into the Abomination just before the final battle.

** Averted in with Karl Urban in ''Film/{{Dredd}}'', the only time he is seen without his helmet is at the beginning of the film as he gets dressed for work and it's too dark to see his face at all.
* Billy Zane gets a lot of face time in ''Film/ThePhantom'', considering he's playing a character whose face is never shown clearly in the comics.

* This is a common theory for why none of the live-action Batman films (or the [[Series/{{Batman}} 60's show]]) have Batman and Robin wearing [[IrislessEyeMaskOfMystery masks with opaque white lenses]]. The look works fine in comics and cartoons where the ExpressiveMask trope is in full effect, but doesn't work in live action because it prevents the actors from conveying emotions with their eyes. Creator/LeVarBurton had similar complaints about his VISOR prop from ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', for instance. ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' does have Batman wearing white lenses, but the scene is very brief and is basically just there as a MythologyGag.
