DC stopped Batman from doing oral sex to Catwoman
The R-rated animated series Harley Quinn features gore, gallows humor, and other adult elements that allow her to make the most of her censorship-free home on the DC Universe streaming service. That is, until a recent Variety interview with co-creators and executive producers Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker revealed that there’s one place no DC superhero will go.
“… in this third season of ‘Harley’ [when] We had a moment when Batman cracked down on Catwoman, “Halpern said.” And DC said, “You can’t do that. You absolutely can’t do that. ‘ They say, ‘Heroes don’t do that.’ “
Halpern discovered the main reason comic book giant Batman won’t have oral sex with Catwoman.
âSo we said, ‘Are you saying that heroes are just selfish lovers?’ They said, ‘No, we sell consumer toys for heroes. It’s hard to sell a toy when Batman is attacking someone too. ‘”
The animated series, which begins in 2019, follows the misadventures of Harley Quinn and her fellow villain Poison Ivy after Harley realizes that her boyfriend Joker doesn’t love her and breaks up with him.
The pushback has led social media reactions from Batman actors to DC directors.
“Canon” was everything, the director of , tweeted along with a picture of … well, see for yourself.

“Thank you DC for making this Batman moment possible.” one tweeted.
History has also led to that more stories about Batman’s love life reappear.
