on Wednesday became the first actor to weigh in on an oral sex scene that was cut from the adult-oriented HBO Max animated series Harley Quinn, news of which sent the internet into a tizzy this week.
Show creators and executive producers Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker revealed recently that DC nixed the scene, in which Batman was performing oral sex on Catwoman. “DC was like, ‘You can’t do that. You absolutely cannot do that,’” Halpern told. “They’re like, ‘Heroes don’t do that.’”
That single anecdote set social media ablaze with debate over Bruce Wayne’s intimate habits, with memes going up as fast as they could be created to comment and joke on the matter.
Now, an actual Batman has weighed in. Kilmer had fans in stitches when he tweeted, “Does he or doesn’t he…?” along with a GIF from his 1995 Batman Forever installment in which the film’s love interest, played by Nicole Kidman, is trying to seduce Batman and says, “We could give it a try. I’ll bring the wine…”
Fans were having as much fun with that post as they were on Tuesday, when the late Adam West was trending on Twitter, with fans of the beloved TV Batman saying they were sure his campy Caped Crusader was a generous lover.
Does he or doesn’t he…?
