Listen up, all you Marvel and DC diehards: You’re never going to convince one another that the other is superior, so stop wasting your time. Or, at the very least, leave Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn’s Twitter mentions out of it.

On Saturday, the Marvel film director tweeted that enough was enough, ranting that he was tired of not being able to mention the DC universe without the world’s comic book defenders starting a brawl on Twitter.

“Every time I mention anything DC, no matter what, my feed becomes an endless screaming match about [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice],” Gunn wrote, launching into a Twitter rant of his own. “You guys are never going to convince each other—it’s just a bunch of wasted energy.”

Why fight over Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a two-year-old movie, when Marvel and DC fans could just use that energy to realize how much they have in common, Gunn surmised? Or, better yet, scream about something of “international importance,” such as President Donald Trump.

At the very least, Gunn begged, leave him out of these fights and untag him in tweets before engaging.

“I’ve muted a lot of you guys, but not all,” Gunn wrote.

That’s right, you Marvel vs. DC-enraged fans—stay off Gunn’s lawn!
