The “controversy” about Batman being a selfish lover sparked by a story about DC nixing a scene in the animated Harley Quinn series as brought Val Kilmer in to weigh in. As you probably recall, Harley Quinn co-creator Justin Halpern revealed that DC nixed a scene from season three in which Batman was going down on Catwoman, noting that DC told him, “Heroes don’t do that” and “It’s hard to sell a toy if Batman is also going down on someone.”

Val Kilmer, who played the character in Batman Forever, has become the first Batman actor to weigh in on the whole kerfuffle. He took to Twitter to ask, “Does he or doesn’t he…?” while providing a GIF from Batman Forever pretty clearly implying that at least HIS Dark Knight does:

Some of the best reactions have come from people who have written the character in the comics, such as Gotham writer Tze Chun, who wrote:

“ive written Batman and he does

his head has handles on it

“wHy dOeSnT hIs MaSk cOvEr tHe BotToM hALf oF hIs FaCe?””

Meanwhile, Harley Quinn Seasons 1 & 2 are currently streaming on HBO Max. Season 3 is currently in the works and will launch on the streaming service later on.
