Wonder Woman

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.


Factual error: The word "intel", used several times, is first recorded in 1961. It certainly wasn't in use in 1918.


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.


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.

Question: If Amazons are immortal and never age then how can Diana grow up there?


Answer: It would be more accurate to say they grow to a certain age then stop aging. Similar to the elves in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.


Answer: They may never grow old, but they are not immortal since we see some die.

Answer: Diana is unlike the other Amazon women, so her physiology differs. In mythology, Amazon women were demigods - half human and half god. Diana's mother, Hippolyta, crafted her from clay and Zeus gave her life. Diana grew from an infant into adulthood, then, like the other Amazons, becomes either immortal or long-lived.
