Batman Doesn't Go Down

Surprised there wasn't a thread about this yet...

DC comics broke the internet this week via a revelation from one of the showrunners of the HBO Max Harley Quinn show revealed that DC comics killed a scene in the show where Batman was going down on Catwoman:

“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.’”
(btw the show isn't that great. It's basically Penny from Big Bang Theory playing Harley and saying "fuck" a lot)

Of course the memes started:


Even Colbert jumped into the ring:

A man who dresses up in black rubber every night, has thoroughly studied human anatomy, and maintains a playboy public image?

The dude fucks. They were dumb asses to censor it 😂

Batman has only had sex one time, while drugged, in a drone-like thrusting and emotionless missionary position, with Talia Al Ghul. Once.

According to DC Comics.

Anyways how fucking stupid of them to even tweet about it. Who cares?

Edit: Don’t understand the outrage/surprise at this…. Is soft core porn ok for everything? We gonna get our panties in a bunch the next time anything with Mickey Mouse is licensed and it doesn’t show him tossing the salad giving Minnie a rimjob? Or just a transparent faux attempt by supposed journalists to say Batman is misogynistic because DC won’t allow a sex act with one of their properties geared towards children?
Code this us up as “working as intended”

clickbait makes me feel autistic and out of touch with reality

Have you seen the HQ show? A child shouldn't be allowed within 100 feet of a tv showing it!

Batman playing the slots is the least offensive thing about it.. if anything, the show could use WAY MORE sex to balance out the profanity and violence.

I have seen the show and it all falls within the boundaries of exploring a villain charachter such as all the joker mini series in the comics which none were ever intended for children.

Pretty much all the villain lines in and from comics are adult focused, and the hero lines children focused.

It's a clear line in the sand I don't comprehend how it's not visible to anyone with half a brain based in reality.

If they allow Batman to eat pussy, then where do you draw the line?

Joker sucking off Jim Gordon? Sure

Poison Ivy riding Penguin like a race horse? Yep

Batman having a raw, violent, threesome with Alfred and Robin? Why not?

See. It's a slippery slope to hardcore, animated DC porn. Nobody wants to see that. DC made the right call

Maybe if they spent half as much time on writing good stories than pondering about who is licking whose orifice, comics wouldn't be in such dire straits.

The show has Poison Ivy sleeping with Harley. But Batman going down on Catwoman is too far.

Ha. Love it. Poison ivy and Harley going like scissors is all good, but Batman eating out Catwoman like a starved Cookie Monster is a step too far.

Might as well make a hardcore DC porn at this point.

One is an icon the other is a failed franchise. Im pretty sure DC doesn't want to open that door with one of their biggest properties just for some horn dog shipping in a fringe cartoon. These are characters they are trying to sell to kids.

You obviously don't read the comics where they show Catwoman and Batman fucking. Hell Batman: Damned showed his dick.
