People are so damned weird. Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame co-director Joe Russo is trending on Twitter right now. Why is that, you might ask? Well, supposedly the SPOILER death of Tony Stark/Iron Man was a little too much in the ol’ feeling for a lot of Endgame viewers and their salt needed to season someone’s ass about it. Enter a quote attributed to Russo:

First of all, death threats are ridiculous when it comes to pop culture anger. Just yell a lot and curse the name of your hated director (ZACK SNYDERRRRRRR!) and hope he doesn’t get his hands on your Batman anymore. Don’t threaten the man.

Second of all, I’m fairly certain Joe Russo has never been on The Tonight Show. A quick Google reveals a Joe Russo was on the show as a drummer for Father John Misty, but it isn’t Marvel’s Joe Russo.

Third of all, Avengers: Endgame was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, not the Russo Brothers. Add to that the fact that Kevin Feige doesn’t f*ck around or let anything large happen without an eye on the much larger picture and the idea that a director would take on something that culturally huge involving a character he supposedly despises and then somehow kill them for fun and you’ve got a big bag of CALM THE SH*T DOWN, KIDS.

On the beautiful side of Twitter is Zendaya, who is also trending for a vastly different reason. Yes, it’s an appreciation party for Zendaya and we’re all invited.

Now that’s more like it.
