Here's What Kevin Smith Thinks About Batman Going Down on Catwoman
"That's what a hero does!"
Published Jun 25, 2021ICYMI there's been an ongoing debate in the DC Comics world about whether Batman would ever perform oral sex on Catwoman. And while Justice League director Zack Snyder made his views on the issues explicitly known, fellow filmmaker and comic book nerd Kevin Smith has now weighed in.
During a recent episode of the FatMan Beyond LIVE podcast, Smith made his view on the issue pretty damn clear.
"That's what a hero does! Hero eats your pussy before you do anything, before you even see his dick — and in Batman's case that takes a long time because he's a layered character" Smith said [via NME].
Smith went on to explain he's a bit of an expert on the topic too. After all, he's someone "who's been reading Batman his whole life and was given stewardship once or twice."
Smith added: "It would track for the character. He's great at everything… he studied everything! He went all around the world, you telling me he'd leave that off the list?"
As previously reported, this whole thing follows news earlier this month that Harley Quinn co-creator Justin Halpern scrapped a scene "where Batman was going down on Catwoman" from the DC/HBO Max animated series.
"DC was like, 'You can't do that. You absolutely cannot do that,'" Halpern told Variety. "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.'"
