Fighting about Zack Snyder’s controversial superhero epic, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, has become a pastime for both DC and Marvel fans. Almost two years later, comic book fans are still raging about the film. Well, James Gunn has had enough. The Guardians of the Galaxy director took to Twitter to speak out against the constant bickering and even threatened to block those who continue to tag him in the debates:
1 Every time I mention anything DC, no matter what, my feed becomes an endless screaming match about BvS.

Here’s Gunn‘s full statement:
“Every time I mention anything DC, no matter what, my feed becomes an endless screaming match about BvS. You guys are never going to convince each other – it’s just a bunch of wasted energy. At least when you’re screaming at each other about Trump, it’s something of international importance. But it’s a 2-year-old movie that some people like and some people don’t. Why is someone else’s opinion so important to you. As Marvel and DC super fans you have way more in common with each other than you do with the rest of the world. So why do you spend so much time raging at each other? It’s silly. Please just stop it. Stop engaging in that way. But at the very least when you do, untag me. I’ve muted a lot of you guys, but not all. Thanks.”
James Gunn‘s message is pretty simple: Why can’t we all get along?
