According to artist Warren Louw, Warner Bros. has refused to allow the above cover art to be sold as prints, on the grounds that they’re “too sexually provocative” and violate their new “Modesty policy”. From Warren Louw’s Instagram (emphasis mine):
Fairly regularly I will be messaged about the availability of these artworks for purchase. Obviously these DC covers are sold out, however I know some of you were anticipating these to become available as premium prints at Sideshow. Due to a recent Modesty policy for Consumer Products (handed down to DC by Warner Bros.) this policy now unfortunately renders these covers as too sexually provocative. As a result they've been rejected use by Sideshow. I was quite stunned to learn this, however in today's social climate, I understand how they need to be ultra cautious. I was really looking forward to making these milestone artworks of mine more available to all my fans, however this is the current state of the situation. Fortunately this policy does not extend to retailer exclusives, so we are still good there. Anyway, just wanted to let you know. Have a great weekend!

"I'm happy to have worked with people like Johnny Depp and with those actors who were ready to try something different, I like to work with people who inspire me. Like Michelle Pfeiffer who for her Catwoman was able to put a live bird in her mouth. I love actors who are more interested in the process than in the result." - Tim Burton during the 16th Rome Film Fest 2021 on October 23, 2021 in Rome, Italy. (Translated from Italian)
