Zack Snyder recently took to Twitter with a raunchy image in response to the DC debate regarding the removal of his explicit Batman and Catwoman scenes.
Twitter fans are going crazy over the graphic upload – and heres why!
THAT Zack Snyder Tweet explored
Zack Snyder is an American filmmaker who previously directed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Justice League (2017) and its directors cut Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021).
After a controversial debate surrounding Barman’s character was stirred by a Justin Halpern interview (explained further on), Snyder took to Twitter with his thoughts on the matter.
By uploading a graphic, animated image involving Batman performing oral sex on Catwoman, Snyder captioned the Tweet with a comic term.
In comic book terms, the “canon” of comics characters/universes is often referred to as the stories which are part of the “official”, “accepted” history and story of particular characters/universes.

DC removed scene debate – what is going on?
Although the HBO Max animated series, Harley Quinn, has taken a more adult-oriented approach to its story and characters since it first premiered on DC Universe, it seems as though some scenarios don’t fit the brand…
Series co-creator and executive producer Justin Halpern recently told Variety about the complications of Harley Quinn season 3, sparking some controversy surrounding Batman.
Reportedly, DC wanted to remove an explicit scene involving Batman and Catwoman from Harley Quinn as ‘Heroes don’t do that.’
When asking if they think heroes are just selfish lovers, Halpern quoted DC by stating:
“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.’”
This resulted in Warner Bros. cutting a scene from the animated series that would have shown Batman performing oral sex on Catwoman.
Many members of the movie fandom are now confused as to what companies choose to accept.
Despite Batman appealing to children as well as adults, the character’s darker stories have previously remained within the plot.
It all makes sense now, right?
As one of DC’s most prominent movie figure, Zack Snyder then took to Twitter to express his thoughts on the debate.
