In today’s dose of ‘is this for real?’, a husband has reportedly chosen to watch ‘The Batman’ over his wife giving birth to avoid potential spoilers. On popular content platform Reddit, a woman shared her plight with fellow Redditers.

The 25-year-old pregnant woman asked fellow Redditers whether she was an a***ole for being unhappy about the fact that her husband plans to skip on her giving birth to their child for the upcoming Batman film.

She further added that her husband claims to have “no option” other than to watch the film on the day she may be giving birth as he wants to avoid potential spoilers. While most netizens would usually claim to be die-hard fans of the superhero franchise, several users slammed the to-be father for planning to miss out on a day that in all likelihood will be one of the most special days of their life together.

For the unversed, The Batman is scheduled to hit the theaters on March 4. The film stars newly branded Batman Robert Pattinson and will be directed by Matt Reeves.

“Not an A-Hole”: Redditers Extend Support

Fellow Redditers were quick to empathize with the woman’s plight and told her that she was not being irrational or emotional. “Oh, right, a grown up man can’t wait a couple of days to see a comics movie because spooooileeerrrsss and you’re being irrational and emotional,” a user sarcastically commented.

“He thinks possibly being spoiled on a super hero movie is a bigger deal than possibly missing the birth of his child. I’m sorry you’re having a baby with someone with such messed up priorities,” another netizen extended their support.

Fellow Redditer Gives Suggestion

TBH the fact that being there to support you while you push a small child out of your body not his first priority is … disheartening,” a netizen commented. “He can go to the movie but if you go into labor he has to skip or leave the movie and join you at the hospital,” the user added.
