    “Come On DC, You Know It’s Right”: Hugh Jackman Supports Fans’ Request For Iconic White-Eyed Batman

    DC Comics fans have a long-standing request for the live-action portrayal of Batman: the white eyes. While the dark, black eyes have become synonymous with the character on screen, many fans yearn for the iconic white eyes from the comics.  

    This seemingly simple change has sparked passionate debate, and even A-listers like Hugh Jackman haven’t been shy about voicing their support. But with directors like Zack Snyder ignoring the pleas, can Jackman finally sway DC Studios to listen?

    Hugh Jackman, best known for his phenomenal portrayal of Wolverine in theX-Men‘ films, has surprisingly become a vocal advocate for the white eyes. In a playful social media post, he photoshopped white eyes onto Robert Pattinson‘s Batman from ‘The Batman,’ captioning it, “Come on DC, you know it’s right!” 

    This nudge from a beloved actor resonated with many fans, reigniting the conversation about the white eyes. While a single social media post might not tip the scales, it shows that a passionate fanbase can influence even the biggest studios. Perhaps, with enough support, the white eyes can finally make the leap from comic panels to the silver screen.

    Moreover, Wolverine sporting his mask with white eyes in a fan edit by TaranStingVFX1 sparked even more interest. A lot of fans believe that Jackman’s look could be instrumental in finally convincing DC to try something new with Batman.

    Why The White Eyes Matter

    For comic book purists, the white eyes represent a crucial aspect of Batman’s mystique. They create an emotionless, almost alien visage, adding to the character’s aura of fear and intimidation. The black eyes we see in most movies, while undeniably cool, can make Batman seem more human and relatable.  

    This can be a double-edged sword, it allows us to connect with the character’s inner turmoil. However, it can also diminish the sense of unwavering resolve that the white eyes project.

    There’s also a practical argument for the white eyes. In action sequences, the black eyes can make it difficult to see where Batman is looking. They also provide a clear focal point, enhancing the fight choreography and conveying Batman’s tactical prowess. Ultimately, the decision lies with DC Studios.  

    While James Gunn, the new head honcho, hasn’t commented on the white eyes specifically, his reputation for listening to fan feedback gives hope. Perhaps Hugh Jackman’s playful nudge, combined with the persistent requests of countless fans, will finally be enough to bring the white-eyed Batman to life.
