Taika Waititi Addresses Continuity Issue In Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi finally has an answer for fans who're concerned about a continuity issue between his Marvel movie and James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy.

Though a lot of fans loved the colorful superhero space buddy movie that Waititi crafted for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, others were a bit troubled by the appearance of Sakaarians in Ragnarok. When the people first appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy, Sakaarians had dark, rugged clothes on, but when they showed up in Ragnarok, they wore nothing but colorful and flamboyant outfits.

Taking to Twitter, Waititi offered a quick explanation saying that "every true Marvel fan knows, Sakaarians wear reversible clothes. Grey, rugged, and scary on one side, colorful, festive, and flamboyant on the other!"

It might seem more or less like a joke, but at least Waititi's response admits that there was a big difference in the way he presented the alien race in Ragnarok. What's one little continuity change in the face of all the different changes he's made to the Thor franchise? He's added a different tone of humor to Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki's (Tom Hiddleston) been made more cowardly than bitingly witty. Not to mention the added color and the offbeat humor used in the film. But hey, Ragnarok was a pretty fun ride, and it did pretty well at the box office.

Thor: Ragnarok is currently screening in cinemas.
