Too bad The Rock is not the CEO of DC Comics.
On Monday, Twitter was awakened by the juicy tidbit in a Variety piece about a popular superhero series.
Apparently, Batman Catwoman in the adult DC Entertainment HBO Max animated series Harley Quinn cannot engage in oral sex at all.
Justin Halpern, co-creator and executive producer of the highly graphic series, told the magazine:
This third season of ‘Harley’ we had a moment when Batman cracked down on Catwoman. And DC said, ‘You can’t do that. You absolutely cannot. ‘ They say, ‘Heroes don’t do that.’ So 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 going after someone too. ‘
While DC selling a different type of toy If Batman proves to be such a staunch advocate of female pleasure, Halpern and co-creator Patrick Schumacker also told Variety that DC was pretty much endorsed of their show’s penchant for crossing the line.
Thankfully, Twitter users were ready to joke that DC didn’t want Batman to go down …

I think it says something about our culture that DC Comics and Warner Brothers don’t allow Batman to eat Catwoman in a sex scene in the adult Harley Quinn animated series because “we sell action figures to kids,” but Batman is Murderers in the live action movies are fine.

One of the problems is that Batman cannot move his neck.

I’m just glad Batman’s parents weren’t alive to see this discussion
