When it comes to comic book, sci-fi, and fantasy franchises, many fans spend so much time debating which is better: Marvel vs. DC, Star Wars vs. Star Trek, and so on. According to Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker James Gunn, these kind of debates are just a "bunch of wasted energy"
Gunn has had enough of fans arguing about Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In a Twitter thread, he says that every time he mentions DC, his timeline eventually gets filled up with fans arguing about the divisive DC film.
"Every time I mention anything DC, no matter what, my feed becomes an endless screaming match about BvS," Gunn wrote. "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," Gunn finished, "when you do, untag me. I've muted a lot of you guys, but not all. Thanks."
Well-said, James Gunn. These pointless debates result to nothing significant, so why waste time on them?
The next DC film is Justice League, which will be released in theaters on November 17, 2017.
