James Gunn Calls For Cease Fire In Marvel Vs. DC War

President Donald Trump’s attempts to settle the escalating conflict between the United States and North Korea aren’t going so well on Twitter. But that doesn’t mean that the social media service can’t be used for diplomacy.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has taken to Twitter to call for a stoppage of hostilities in the ongoing war between fans of Marvel and DC. Gunn, whose Facebook and Twitter feeds normally serve as a wellspring of clickbait article ideas, decided to use his influence for good when he tweeted:

Gunn is a powerful man and a lot of people listen to him, especially if those people are writers for entertainment websites looking for an easy article on a slow news day. But can he finally end this age-old conflict between rival comic book companies and their legions of followers?

Well, if he really wants to be a peacemaker, James Gunn needs to learn how to make sacrifices. Marvel’s fans might be perfectly willing to stop making fun of the terrible movies Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but only if they received some concessions as well, and DC fans might stop pointing out that Marvel shamefully waited 20 movies before making a movie with a female lead and female co-director.

It’s time for James Gunn to reveal that final Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Egg, the one which he swore he would only give up on his death bed. If James Gunn really cares about peace, he’ll release the Easter Egg now and end the Twitter violence before any more butts are hurt in the conflict.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
