Here’s a funny piece of trivia. DC asked the Harley Quinn showrunners to cut out a scene that would have involved Batman going down on Catwoman. Granted, they don’t mention if it would’ve been explicit (and considering the show has many implied jokes, it probably would’ve been an implied joke scene), but it is funny to think that Batman can’t do this for fear of not selling toys.
Here’s the excerpt:
“It’s incredibly gratifying and free to be using characters that are considered villains because you just have so much more leeway,” says Halpern. “A perfect example of that is in this third season of ‘Harley’ [when] we had a moment where Batman was going down on Catwoman. And DC was like, ‘You can’t do that. You absolutely cannot do that.’ 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.’”
