Warner Bros seemingly got Zack Snyder's NSFW Batman photo taken down

The architect of DC's SnyderVerse Zack Snyder had a lot to say about Batman's “eating habits" last week. After Warner Bros and DC denied Harley Quinn showrunners a scene where Batman performed oral exercises on Catwoman, the entire Internet exploded.

In response to Warner Bros and DC claiming that “heroes don't do that", Snyder has something else in mind. Shortly after, the film director posted a very explicit image of Batman and Catwoman in the act. Needless to say, someone wasn’t a fan.

After the image was circulated online, millions became aware of the risqué art piece. In fact, many saw the image as Snyder fighting back against Warner Bros after being booted out of the DC Extended Universe.

Snyder's lewd picture claimed that Batman performing cunnilingus on Catwoman was “canon". As the director has no say on what is canon in the DCEU anymore, someone has seemingly taken offence.

Yesterday, someone at either DC or Warner Bros got the image taken down from Snyder's Twitter account. The takedown is surprising as Snyder's post was assumed to be original, commissioned artwork. Seeing as not a single fan noted a source to the image, it certainly is original artwork from somewhere.

Looking at Snyder's original post now simply gives you the message: “This image has been removed in response to a report by the copyright holder".

Are there grounds to do this?

Seeing as Snyder's lewd post was certainly commissioned fanart, it seems especially scummy for the post to be taken down. However, as Snyder is involved with the DCEU, underlying contracts could make that image be deemed as official DC content. As such, it does give Warner Bros or DC a legal precedent to try and remove the image.

Despite this, it's still a sleazy act by whichever company is behind it. On the bright side, the image is being consistently reuploaded for those that wish to set it.
