Following DC’s decision to cut a scene seeing Batman going down on Catwoman, fans have created other imaginary, risqué scenarios featuring superhero favourites.
In talks with Variety, DC justified the scene cut with a simple: “Heroes don’t do that.”
Why did DC cut a scene with Batman going down on Catwoman?
Early this week, it was revealed, in a Variety feature, that the higher-ups at DC were not comfortable with Batman and Catwoman taking their romance a little bit, erm, further.
Harley Quinn co-creator and executive producer, Justin Halpern, disclosed that there had been mention of a scene seeing Batman going down on Catwoman – though DC quickly asked for it to be cut.
Halpern spoke to Variety: “They’re like (DC), ‘Heroes don’t do that’.”
Halpern continued: “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.”
It seems as though DC are quick to protect the reputation of, undoubtedly, one of their most iconic superheroes. Batman made his debut back in 1939, yet he’s still incredibly recognised to this day!
5 other fan-made Superhero s*x scenes
Now that the idea of an intimate moment between Batman and Catwoman has been shut down, fans can’t help but wonder what other superhero favourites would be like as lovers.
The Joker and Harley Quinn
Likely one of the most turbulent and twisted love affairs in the DC Universe, we know that The Joker and Harley Quinn would not play it shy when it comes to a s*x scene. In fact, it would probably even be a little bit too racy for our screens.
Though, we definitely know that it would reignite the 2016 Harley Quinn Halloween costume craze – every party in October would comprise of girls with spray-painted hair and boys with cheap face paint.
The Flash and Iris West
Although The Flash and Iris West make a great couple, for the most part, we’re not sure what we’d think of their more ‘intimate moments’.
The Flash’s superhuman ability is literally to be fast – doesn’t that mean that this s*x scene would only get like, 5 seconds of airtime?
Hawkman and Hawkgirl:
These two are a pretty underrated couple and, quite frankly, their passion for each other is unmatched.
If Hawkman and Hawkgirl were to share an intimate scene, we know it’d be full of infatuation and emotion – the definition of ‘eternal love’!
Captain America and Peggy Carter:
As seen in Endgame, Captain America is pretty devoted to Peggy Carter. They’re definitely in love, but Captain America is always out sacrificing his life to save the world and what not.
We think that Captain America would be a super understanding lover, who is also kind and gentle. It would be quite the opposite of The Joker and Harley Quinn’s love affair.
Mr Fantastic and The Invisible Woman
Honestly, some moments are meant to be kept private. If Mr Fantastic and The Invisible Woman were to do a s*x scene, it’s quite possible that they’d honour their own privacy and simply just, well, disappear.
Much like Batman and Catwoman, it’s one that will be left up to the imagination.
