“Avengers” director Joss Whedon (shown above right) believes the upcoming midterms are “our last chance to save our world from brutality and chaos.”

You don’t need to know much about the filmmaker’s politics to know his latest tweet is a dig at Republicans.

The “Buffy the Vampire” creator has long been vocal on social media about his feelings toward anything conservative or right-leaning.

He even has a disturbing history of misogynistic and hateful comments aimed at any and all who dare to disagree with him.

In his latest tweet, he posted an odd picture of himself in glasses with one lens covered by an “I Voted” sticker.

He wrote with the picture, “Vote! It … makes you a pirate? I don’t know, I’m not in marketing — it’s our last chance to save our world from brutality and chaos, how about that. Aaarr.”

Whedon is not the only celebrity talking about the midterms and a potential mass Republican victory as if it would be the end of days.

Actress Jane Fonda recently said the midterms were the most important elections of her life.

Actress and musician Bette Midler has been melting down over the midterms and even called President Donald Trump a “murderer” in one tweet.

Fellow actress and musician Barbra Streisand said Trump’s presidency still makes her feel a bit “numb.”

In addition to Whedon’s misogynistic comments on social media, the ex-wife of this praised “feminist” accused him of being a major hypocrite — something that’s easy once you consider the fact that the man constantly rails against conservatives for being hateful, yet excuses his own behavior and words when it comes to political arguments.

Whedon, 54, is best known for directing “The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” for Marvel and Disney.

He has also created such popular television shows as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” “Marvel’s Agents of Shield,” and “Firefly.”

He was also credited as a co-writer on last year’s “Justice League,” a film that heavily flopped and threw Warner Brothers’ DC Extended Universe into question.

Fans have criticized the film and the fact that Whedon severely cut and edited it from an original version by director Zack Snyder — who will next be directing an adaptation of Ayn Rand’s “The Fountainhead.” Snyder had to leave the project before scheduled reshoots due to a death in his family.
