Snyder, on Twitter this Thursday night, posted a cartoon of Batman descending on Catwoman on a Gotham rooftop at night with the simple caption “Cannon.”

It’s just such a powerful statement that raises so many questions. Where does this image come from? Did he order this picture? If not, did he just have that on his phone? Was it stored in this memory bank as the perfect indentation for this particular moment? Either way, it was perfect, and I have to say that between that and the Snyder Cut, right now, the director is winning the internet.
This all comes after Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacher, two of the co-creators of the Harley Quinn animated series, spoke about the flexibility they get from working with villains on the series, except when it comes to Bruce Wayne / Batman running into his longtime love Selina Kyle / Catwoman:
“It’s incredibly rewarding and free to use characters who are seen as villains because you have so much more leeway,” says Halpern. “A perfect example of this is in this third season of” Harley ” [when] we had a moment where Batman was running into Catwoman. And DC was like, ‘You can’t do this. 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 said, “No, it’s because we sell consumer toys for the heroes. It’s hard to sell a toy if Batman is after someone too. ‘ “
A lot of people decided this was some sort of Batman bet to get people to watch Harley Quinn and put pressure on DC to allow the scene to unfold. If that’s true, good for Halpern and Schumacher. If there was a good reason to manipulate a company into being sexually progressive, it’s a cause I can support.
So in Zack Snyder’s upcoming R-rated production, we should expect some really great music rather than cunnilingus. Knowing Snyder, I think it’ll probably be “Sweet Cherry Pie” or something with a little mix of fun and metaphor.
