Zack Snyder discusses deleted Harley Quinn s*x scene
With the success of Justice League, everyone found out just how detrimental it is for a movie when studios meddle in a creators’ work. That should, ideally, be lesson enough for Warner Bros. However, that’s not the case. The showrunners of DC’s R-rated animated series Harley Quinn had a very steamy idea in their minds. But, Warner Bros. did not agree to it. And Zack Snyder had quite a fitting response to them.
Zack Snyder “owns” WB and DC on Twitter
The animated series features the voice of The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco and truly fulfills its R rating. However, things were going to get a lot more steamy between Batman and Catwoman with an oral s*x scene. That, of course, did not happen as Warner Bros. and DC pulled the plug. That decision did not evade Zack Snyder.
In response to this news, Snyder responded in a very creative way on Twitter. He tweeted an image of Batman going down on Catwoman in the comics, with the caption “Canon”. As expected, DC fans on Twitter went on a meltdown, with a vast majority hailing Snyder. After the success of the Snyder Cut, the director has gained a lot of credibility among the fandom. So, the fans sided with the director on this one too.
The showrunner says they tried their best, but the studio won’t budge
This bombshell was dropped by the co-showrunner of the show Justin Halpern himself, who supported the idea along with Snyder. While speaking to Variety, Harper said:
It’s incredibly gratifying and free to be using characters that are considered villains because you just have so much more leeway. A perfect example of that is in this third season of Harley, 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.’
One can understand that a kids’ show shouldn’t have such explicit scenes. But, Harley Quinn is already an R-rated show. Therefore, Snyder does have a point. So, what do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below.
