Marvel Fans Just Caught A Glaring Continuity Issue In 'Avengers: Infinity War'—And We Can't Unsee It

Marvel Fans Just Caught A Glaring Continuity Issue In 'Avengers: Infinity War'—And We Can't Unsee It
Marvel Studios

The rabidly dedicated Marvel fanbase consumes everything the studio makes with such intense enthusiasm there is virtually no error so small the fans won't catch it.

So it's no surprise a continuity error in 2018's Avengers: Infinity Wardidn't make it past eagle-eyed fans. It may have taken four years to notice, but they were bound to find it eventually.

And this one is so glaring people kind of can't get over it.

See if you can catch it in the tweet posted by a fan below.

Along with a clip of the error, the fan, Twitter user @lesbobomb, tweeted:

"currently rewatching infinity war and i'll never be able to unsee peter's sudden change of hairstyle"

Did you spot it?

The scene's low light makes it easy to miss—which is probably why it took four years for there to be an online conversation about it among the fan base. But much like @lesbobomb said, once you see it, it's all your eyes can land on!

The error comes about an hour into the movie, during a scene between Tom Holland's Peter Parker and Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark when they meet each other aboard Thanos' ship.

In the sequence, Parker tells Stark, "You can’t be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man if there’s no neighborhood." The scene then cuts to Stark for a reaction shot, then cuts back to Parker for more dialogue.

When it does, Parker has completely different hair than he did before. And not just subtly different—not an inch shorter, or parted on a different side.

We're talking totally different.



Now that it's been pointed out, the Marvel fandom can't deal—especially since the new scrutiny has uncovered other errors as well.

And that wasn't the only gaffe fans spotted—Downey Jr.'s character's height appears to fluctuate throughout the scene, too.

Perhaps Marvel should just hire the fandom to supervise continuity on the shoots from now on.
