That was all Donny needed to know she wasn’t the girl for him and he slammed down on the red light.
"Like, you can’t not like Marvel. It’s amazing,” he said.
"There are so many different things and it’s not anime, it’s a bunch of superheroes who try to save everybody."
Smiling politely before getting up to leave, Maria responded graciously: “Yeah, I’ll give it a chance, maybe.”
Once she was gone, Donny explained that the comic books and movies were “kind of a big deal to me,” and that he’d even named his dog Marvel.
His rigid loyalty to the superhero universe was greeted with a mixed response on Twitter, with thousands of commentators offering their take on the interaction.
Many people were dumbfounded by his decision and said Maria had made a lucky escape:
