Warning: This article contains spoilers for Stranger Things season 3.

It looks like Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo are interested in working together with Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer.

Taking to Twitter early  this week, the Russo Brothers suggested a collaboration with the creators of Netflix’s epic ode-to-the-80’s science fiction horror series on the count of each team’s tendency to make fans cry.  The filmmakers shared a fun meme to suggest the collaboration showing off a picture of a set of two hands coming in for a handshake representing the Duffer Brothers and the Russos. In the middle of the handshake is the Duffers and Russos habit of “making fans cry.”

The meme was released in response to the latest season of Stranger Things which broke hearts of fans all over. Major and minor characters were killed in season 3 of the series, and fans have been mourning their losses ever since the season’s release.

The Russos did the same thing, killing off major characters first in Avengers: Infinity War, and then killing another set of major heroes in Avengers: Endgame. Of course, the deaths hit the hardest in Endgame because fans knew that these Avengers would never be able to come back. There’s been a lot of heart ache over the loss of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Captain America (Chris Evans), and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Now, fans are wondering how Marvel is going to navigate a world without three of its main Avengers.

Stranger Things season 3 is currently streaming on Netflix. Avengers: Endgame is screening in cinemas.
