James-Franco-Jizz-Batman

I don’t know if that’s James Franco behind the mask, but it did come from his Instagram account, and I think that’s him? In any case, James Franco Instagrammed this picture of Batman with what looks like jizz on his… uh… mask? helmet? hat? What’s the preferred nomenclature here?

Franco captioned the picture “50 Shades of Batman,” which is just the kind of high-level satire and mind for parody that you can expect from someone with five or ten advanced degrees in the arts like James Franco. The semen dripping down the iconic Batman hood, that’s just strong iconography. I’m guessing it’s some kind of meta psuedo commentary on the homoerotic nature of our capitalistic superhero worship as it relates to the fetishized Judeo-Christian justice matrix in the puritanical milieu. I haven’t quite wrapped my mind around it, but I’ll be cleansing my mind with a few rounds of the Abramovic Method, and I’ll probably understand it better after that.

As our friend Eric Snider pointed out before, James Franco’s character names in 2013 include Alien, Gator Bodine, The Wizard of Oz, Hugh Hefner, and James Franco. Should we add “Jizz-Covered Batman” to that list? I think that would really tie the room together, so to speak. Or at least make it stick together. I don’t know. F*ck you.
