Zack Snyder, who recently said nudity in Justice League would be cool and that he wanted to do porn, responds to the recent controversy surrounding Batman and Catwoman in the Harley Quinn HBO Max animated series.
It recently became known that the creators of the Harley Quinn animated series wanted to include a scene with Batman performing oral sex on Catwoman, but the scene wasn't allowed by DC.
“It’s incredibly gratifying and free to be using characters that are considered villains because you just have so much more leeway,” said Harley Quinn co-creator and executive producer Justin Halpern. “A perfect example of that is in this third season of ‘Harley’ [when] we had a moment where Batman was going down on Catwoman. And DC was like, ‘You can’t do that. You absolutely cannot do that.’ They’re like, ‘Heroes don’t do that.’ 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 has responded on Twitter where he approves of the Batman and Catwoman scene, as Snyder posted the following artwork (done by him? or fan art?) which is in the same style of the Frank Miller comics which in part inspired his DCEU movies and the Ben Affleck Batman.
"Canon," Snyder tweeted which means the scene happened in his DCEU movies.
While Snyder never got the chance to do his version of Catwoman and Selina Kyle, back in November of 2020 he posted Jim Lee art featuring Batman and Catwoman, with many fans thinking Snyder's Catwoman could be played by Carla Gugino who played his Silk Spectre in Watchmen.
