Forget DC vs. Marvel, James Gunn and Geoff Johns are hilarious Twitter pals

It’s a friendly rivalry that’s gone on for decades, and though it's heating up a bit on the big screen, don’t think Marvel and DC can’t get along. Just take DC’s Geoff Johns and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. They’re Twitter pals. Adorable, adorably Twitter pals.

Along with mapping out most of the MCU’s cosmic side, Gunn is also cooking up a Starsky and Hutch TV adaptation. Well, Gunn took to Twitter to lament that a lot of the reporting around the project is apparently inaccurate, and promised some fresh intel will be coming soon.

Then things got interesting. Turns out Johns is also not a fan of misinformation on the internet (ahem) and told Gunn he really loved Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Which, yeah, so did most people — it’s pretty great!

Gunn complimented Johns on the work he’s doing at DC, then realized he was talking to someone from DC. So yeah, they should probably punch each other at some point.

Johns, understandably, was happy to oblige with the virtual fisticuffs.

After that flurry, Gunn (wisely) thought he should use this little convo to propose a trade. Hey, who wouldn’t want to see Bat-Mite in Guardians Vol. 3?

Sadly, Johns has yet to respond with a counter-proposal.
