Filmmaker Zack Snyder's name has become synonymous with the DC Extended Universe, after kickstarting the property with projects like Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. His version of Justice League also finally arrived on streaming this year, revealing his four-hour vision for the blockbuster. There's currently an online debate about whether or not Batman performs oral sex on his partners, and Snyder has weighed in with a hilarious NSFW response.

The debate about Batman's sex practices (lol) came after it was revealed that the studio cut a scene from the Harley Quinn animated series where the Dark Knight was reportedly going to perform oral sex on Catwoman. This quickly broke the internet, and became fodder for countless memes. Zack Snyder got into on the discourse, putting his two cents in to the Twittersphere with:

Well, that's one way of putting it. It looks like Batman is a generous lover in Zack Snyder's version of the DC timeline. So while posting a graphic image from the comics of Batman and Catwoman together, his caption simply reads "canon." We'll just have to see if Warner Bros. responds to this claim, while it inevitably goes viral on Twitter.

News about the studio's thoughts about Batman's sexuality came from Harley Quinn executive producer Justin Halpern. He claimed that a scene featuring Batman going down on Catwoman was intended for the adult cartoon series, before the studio stepped in. Because while Harley Quinn isn't intended for children, the powers that be were reportedly worried about how toy sales might be adversely effected by Gotham's Protector performing oral sex on the small screen. And just like that, the great Batman sex debate was born. Now we know exactly where Zack Snyder weights in on the subject.

Given Zack Snyder's history with the comic book genre, it should come as no surprise where the filmmaker stands on the latest Batman debate. Prior to kickstarting the DCEU, Snyder's Watchmen movie hit theaters. The R-rated blockbuster featured an iconic sex scene, where Silk Spectre and Nite Owl make love as "Hallelujah" plays in the background. And while he didn't include any explicit love sequences within the DC Extended Universe, Snyder is clearly a fan of heroes having a libido.

As mentioned, Zack Snyder didn't direct any love scenes within the DCEU. That said, characters' sex life was definitely implied. Bruce Wayne is still very much a playboy, while Superman joined Lois in the tub in Batman v Superman. But it looks like we shouldn't expect things to get explicit in the shared universe anytime soon.

The next installment in the DCEU is The Suicide Squad on August 6th. In the meantime, check out our 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
