Factual error: When Leavey begins her training at Parris Island in 2001, she and all the other Marines are wearing MARPAT (Marine Pattern). In reality, MARPAT would have just been designed, and not manufactured until early 2002. The standard camouflage for Marines at the time was M81 Woodland.Matdan97
Factual error: Performing for Queen Victoria is the famous opera composer Giacomo Puccini. This happens during her sojourn in Florence in 1888. Puccini was born in 1858, so he was barely thirty years of age, but the actor portraying him, Simon Callow, is in his late 60s (and it shows). Moreover, he is presenting his latest creation "Manon Lescaut"; in 1888 he hadn't even started working on it.Sammo
Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, during Lewis Carol's visit to America, you can hear them playing the melody from the song "The Yankee Doodle Boy" written by James Cohan in 1904. This was 64 years after the events in the movie. In the ending credits they cite this as "Yankee Doodle Dandy" which was written many years before. But, that was not the melody that was being played.
Factual error: The existing Justice League members realise that they cannot battle Steppenwolf without Superman, so they procure the last Motherbox to resurrect Superman from death. Unfortunately, the crippled Kryptonian spacecraft lacks sufficient power to activate the Motherbox. The Flash suggests that, given enough distance to accelerate, he can use his super speed to generate an enormous static electrical charge to activate the Motherbox. The problem with this scenario is that, although the Flash may generate a huge static electrical field at super speed, he is constantly discharging that static electricity, as we see every single time he exerts his power. As Flash races toward the Motherbox, gigantic arcs of electricity (easily hundreds of thousands of volts) pour off him, grounding to the spacecraft's bulkheads, thus neutralizing the static charge. Meaning that The Flash is not accumulating energy, he is discharging energy with every step; so, by the time he arrives at the Motherbox, he should have no more accumulated static electrical energy than if he started ten feet away from it.Charles Austin Miller
Factual error: Tony writes a "postcard" on the back of a picture to Adrian and Veronica to an address in Cambridge including the postcode. This scene occurs in 1967 (we see the date on the letter he is responding to) but postcodes weren't in use in Cambridge until at least 1970.
Factual error: The black leather chair of the Home trust banker is more modern than the movie setting in 1922. (00:59:35)
Factual error: When the bank robbers pull the money out of the vault, they claim all the cash is from 1982. Yet most of the bills have large faces, which was introduced into rotation in 1996.
Factual error: For a movie about the Amazon Basin, it is too bad they pictured many birds from the zoo or computer generated "who knows what." They used a Great Hornbill and African vultures (griffons or white backed vultures) - not South American. They also used computer generated white birds flying over River in "V." Could have been a flock of Cattle Egrets, but just was not right for them.Hall Boy
Factual error: Allegra was said at the end of the film to have died aged 10. She was actually 5 years old when she died.
Factual error: Before and during the Marines' arrival in Marjah, some of them are wearing Dust Goggles. These would've been first issued in World War II and continued into the early 2000s. The Battle for Marjah took place in 2010, by which point these goggles had been replaced by superior models such as ESS for some time.Matdan97
