Grant Morrison Says BATMAN Is "Very Very Gay"

The writer doesn't suggest the character is actually homosexual, but describes the concept behind him as "gay". I dunno, read on and see what you make of it..

Batman has been described as a lot of things, but I think this might be a first (well, I'm sure somebody used the word after seeing Batman And Robin) - comic book writer Grant Morrison describes the ol Caped Crusader as "utterly gay" in an interview with Playboy..



"He's very plutonian in the sense that he's wealthy and also in the sense that he's sexually deviant. Gayness is built into Batman."


He continues..

"I'm not using gay in the pejorative sense, but Batman is very, very gay. There's just no denying it. Obviously as a fictional character he's intended to be heterosexual, but the basis of the whole concept is utterly gay. I think that's why people like it. 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."


There is much more to the interview, and Morrison offers very interesting insights into many more characters he has worked on over the years, but this part really grabs the attention. Something tells me that might well be the entire point. What do you guys reckon? Morrison, who's take on The Dark Knight has been met with a mixed reaction by Bat-fans, has been writing the character since 2006, with story-lines that include “Batman & Son”, “Batman R.I.P.”, “Batman and Robin” and “The Return of Bruce Wayne”. His latest project is “Batman Incorporated” which hits shelves next month as part of DC's New 52.
