Twitter is a leveling platform, where anonymous sci-fi fanboys can wield as much power as genre directors like James Gunn.

Case in point: one Star Wars fanatic might have just convinced James Gunn to cast Mark Hamill in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 with just a geeky tweet.

"Could you do me a huge favour and find a role for @HamillHimself in Guardians 3?" Ian Fee tweeted at the director. "The awesomeness of it might end me, but I’m willing to risk it."

Gunn responded, announcing he's totally cool with it and revealing that he and Hamill are actually neighbors. 

Here's where we really geek out: Hamill responded, also saying he's down. 

Then, they have a conversation about DMs, and our nerd minds collectively exploded.

Actor Josh Gad had the right take.

It really does go down in the DM, but not in the way we expected...
