Batman 'very, very gay' says the comic's writer

batman-and-robin-wb.jpgAs two of the leading crime fighters in the superhero world, Batman and Robin spend an awful lot of time together. And if you believe Batman comic writer Grant Morrison, there could be a little more to this relationship than meets the eye.

"Batman is very, very gay. There's just no denying it," Morrison tells Playboy. "Obviously as a fictional character he's intended to be heterosexual, but the basis of the whole concept is utterly gay."

Morrison isn't new to the scene either. He's been writing for comic books since the 1980s and began writing for Batman in 2006. Comic Book Resource even named him the No. 2 favorite comic book writer of all time.

"Gayness is built into Batman. I'm not using gay in the pejorative sense," Morrison continues. "All these women fancy him and they all wear fetish clothes and jump around rooftops to get to him. He doesn't care--he's more interested in hanging out with the old guy and the kid."

So what do you think Zappers? Is there a chance this could be true?
