A proposed scene involving Batman performing oral sex on Catwoman was cut from an episode of Harley Quinn, it is revealed.

A proposed scene in which Batman performed oral sex on Catwoman was cut from an episode of Harley Quinn, co-creator Justin Halpern has revealed.

The dark animated comedy follows the DC character Harley Quinn (voiced by Kaley Cuoco) and her friend Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) and their interactions with other characters from the DC Universe.

The show is known for its adult humour and risque jokes, but talking to Variety, Halpert admitted that one of their more extreme ideas for a scene was deemed to go too far.

"It's incredibly gratifying and free to be using characters that are considered villains because you just have so much more leeway," he said.

"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.'"

The third season of the show is currently in production and is expected to premiere later this year.
