Factual error: When the German Empire's soldiers are attacking Themyscira in the Mediterranean, one of their rowboats has the ship's name "Schwaben" printed on its side. The "Schwaben" at the time of the movie was a barge on patrol duty on Lake Victoria in back-then German East Africa.

Suggested correction: Since a lot of elements of WWI are different in this universe, a ship that is out of place is not strange.

Continuity mistake: When Sammy first offers the drink to Diana (in a close up), Diana takes the mug in her left hand. Just before the camera switches to a long shot, Diana switches the mug to her right hand. In the long shot, Diana still has the mug in her left hand and she sets it on the wall to her left. The camera switches back to a close up and Diana again has the mug in her right hand. When Steve asks her to dance, Diana again sets the mug down on the wall, this time to her right.

Continuity mistake: At the end after the massive explosion on the runway, two German soldiers get up unscathed and remove their gas masks. They suddenly appeared, as no one else was there, only Diana, and they are only a few feet away from the crater.

Other mistake: Field Marshal Haig is listed in the credits as Field Marshall Haig. This spelling (with two Ls) is only ever a surname, not a rank or job title.

Factual error: When Steve gets dressed after bathing in the pool he zips up his fly. The film is set during the First World War. The zip was not used on clothing until 1925 and did not become common on flies until long after that.

Character mistake: Chief says the poison gas should be flammable because it's hydrogen-based. Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, and there are plenty of non-flammable substances that contain hydrogen - the most notable of which being water.

Suggested correction: Hydrogen is explosive in air at concentrations greater than about 4%.

Pure hydrogen is flammable, yes. However a chemical compound that contains hydrogen would not necessarily be explosive, or even flammable. As the original mistake stated, water contains hydrogen and is not flammable. Whilst other hydrogen-containing compounds are flammable (such as hydrocarbons), the presence of hydrogen alone is not the reason for its volatility.

Character mistake: While posing as Steve's driver, Sameer refers to him as a colonel. He is actually wearing captain's epaulettes.

Continuity mistake: Wonder Woman is fighting the soldiers on the second floor in the village, after she retrieves her shield. Her sword goes from properly in her hand, to being held by the blade, to held by the blade upside down, but when she looks up, just before going through the window, the blade is normal again.

More trivia for Wonder Woman

Question: If she can destroy Ares with her hands then why does she even need a sword and shield? Perhaps for merchandise?

Rob245

Answer: For the majority of the movie, Diana believes the sword to be the only weapon capable of killing Ares. She doesn't realise until she fights him that the sword is just an ordinary weapon and thus, useless against a god. She carries the shield because it is useful. She uses it in combat most prominently to block gunfire.
