Let’s make one thing clear: TV shows, movies, and games all have passionate fanbases behind them, and for better or for worse, disgruntled devotees are always ready to complain, make ridiculous demands, and hurl insults at showrunners, directors, and writers. In the past few weeks alone, petitions have popped up to replace Brie Larson as Captain Marvel with a person of color, remake the final season of Game of Thrones, and remove Robert Pattinson from the DCEU, where he was recently picked to take on the role of Batman.
Obviously, it’s a little difficult to figure out exactly what the intent and motivations behind each petition are. While some campaigners are genuinely upset with the direction their favorite franchises and series are taking, it’s highly likely that others are trolling, and are only looking to upset the internet at large. Either way, it doesn’t seem like these demands are going to stop any time soon, and a new campaign to introduce Danny DeVito into the MCU has us rolling our eyes and laughing.
A few days ago, one fan took to Change.org to try and get the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star cast as the Wolverine. At the time, we didn’t think much of it, but now, the petition has grown in size and is currently sitting at just north of 24,000 signatures.

Of course, even if this particular campaign amassed millions of supporters, the chances of Marvel actually hiring Danny DeVito are slim to none. Don’t get us wrong, we’re big fans of his work, but he’s not exactly cut out for the physical demands that come with the territory.
What are your thoughts, though? Are you tired of the never-ending petitions, or do you take them all in good stride? Do any of these campaigns make cogent points, or do you feel they come off as annoying and entitled? And would you actually enjoy seeing DeVito as the Wolverine?
