Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn responded to a podcaster on Twitter who claimed to have spoiled Avengers: Infinity War by saying, “You’re going to die poor and alone,” Bleeding Cool can EXCLUSIVELY confirm (along with anyone else on the internet). Like all important news stories, this one started with a tweet…
Just spoiled all of Infinity War in my class just now. Have girls screaming and cursing me out right now. Ask me if I care? pic.twitter.com/2Q7MqFrj1i

“Just spoiled all of Infinity War in my class just now,” the operator of the Comic Relief podcast tweeted. “Have girls screaming and cursing me out right now. Ask me if I care?”
Gunn responded several hours later by quoting the tweet and writing: “SPOILER: You’re going to die poor and alone.”

Was Gunn merely joking, or has he become so adept at creating Easter Eggs in comic book movies that he’s gained a sort of precognitive power, literally reading the Easter Eggs of the soul to determine a person’s fate?
Don’t ask us. We finished journalisming when we posted the tweets. But feel free to leave your theories on what this means for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 in the comments below. Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now.
