Zack Snyder has addressed the controversy surrounding Batman and Catwoman, after it was reported HBO cut a scene from the animated Harley Queen series in which the former performed oral sex on the latter.
In a recent interview with the team behind the adult animated show, co-creator Justin Halpern said DC told them “you can’t do that” after they wrote a scene of Batman performing oral sex on Catwoman.
“They’re like, ‘Heroes don’t do that,’” explained Halpern. “So, we said, ‘Are you saying heroes are just selfish lovers?’ They were like, ‘No, it’s that we sell consumer toys for heroes. It’s hard to sell a toy if Batman is also going down on someone.’”
Now Zack Snyder appears to disagree with DC on Batman’s stance on the oral sex.
In a simple tweet that’s already garnered over 290k likes, Snyder shared a NSFW depiction of Batman going down on Catwoman.
“Canon,” he wrote alongside the image, indicating he will show Batman’s cowl between Catwoman’s legs.
