Justice League

Continuity mistake: When Aquaman returns the sailor to the bar after saving him from the ocean, he drinks whiskey from a glass and notices parademon blood on his hand and the glass, in the next shot the glass is clean. (00:43:05)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce talks with Barry to joins him into the league, he shows him a paper with Barry on it and his fingers move between shots. (00:36:35)

Continuity mistake: While Bruce is on the cliff before speaking with Arthur he has his hood on, but in the immediate next shot the hood is off. (00:11:20)

Suggested correction: It disintegrates most of his clothes. What he's left with are the pants he was buried in.

So, the gigantic blast vaporized his shirt, tie, jacket, shoes and even socks, but didn't affect his pants at all? Seems unlikely.

Charles Austin Miller

Well although I agree you gotta know that the obvious reason for this is that they didn't want them fighting a naked Superman. He is still wearing the same pants as he was buried in though, not suddenly wearing different pants. On the other hand it would have been more logical for Superman to be naked for a second or so, then in the next scene wearing something which he got from anywhere in the city in a split second. Unfortunately for the movie makers they show him wearing them as he shoots up from the building, and it's the same pants so the plausibility gets quite lost. It's not a continuity mistake though.

lionhead

Whether it's plausible or not is debatable, but the original mistake claimed his pants changed. The correction is that they're the same pants he was buried in.

Suggested correction: It's never verified that his clothes and shoes were "disintegrated." He could have removed them because they were likely tattered from blasting through the roof.

DetectiveGadget85

True, but it's semantics? Vaporized, tattered, sliced into cubes or deep fried, the crux is still that his magic pants are intact and the rest isn't. I mean, it's pretty obvious like lionhead said in his comment, why it happened; modesty reasons. Some (not me!) might consider pedantic or too obvious to point out such an event that falls generally under the suspension of disbelief category, however it's a fact.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Silas Stone is speaking with Victor, he is wearing a completely different set of clothes from what he was wearing at the lab in the scene just prior. It is implied that the scene happened immediately when coming home from the lab.

Suggested correction: He changed his lab coat for a regular jacket. That's not completely unreasonable going from work to home.

DetectiveGadget85

He wasn't wearing a lab coat, but jacket, tie, sweater vest, shirt, and luckily also pants, and he carries a raincoat. All of them are different when he is home later. That's a pretty significant difference.

Continuity mistake: When WW enters Bruce's lair towards his ship she is wearing high heel boots. In the next shot she's wearing flat black boots. (00:31:44 - 00:33:06)

Plot hole: When Cyborg tells his origin story, he says that the Mother Box in possession of the government was shelved till after the night when Superman died, when it came to life leading it to be studied by Cyborg's father, Silas. However, that contradicts the previous movie, Batman v Superman [both 1 h 39' and 2 h mark], where Batman came upon Luther's metahuman evidence file, including Silas Stone's vlog with the creation of Cyborg that Diana watches.

Factual error: Martha Kent drives away from the foreclosed property. The realtor address is "Comanche, KS 66531", but that's the zip code of Riley, in Riley County. (00:06:30)

Character mistake: At the start Wonder Woman stops a terrorist attack in London, and one of the terrorists tells her the bomb will flatten 4 blocks. This must be true as she is using her lasso of truth. But she just throws the bomb through the roof window and it explodes without damaging anything. A bomb with that blast radius would still damage nearby buildings, whether it detonated in the air or on the ground.

Suggested correction: You are compelled to YOUR truth. He didn't build the bomb. He could have been wrong based on what he knew. Otherwise, why did the terrorists have to go through all that trouble to plant a bomb there if they could level 4 blocks just by planting it outside in the car.

DetectiveGadget85

Which is why it is labeled a character mistake, yes. You are right in your observation, but at the same time, the only truth the movie feeds us by exposition is that the bomb is supposed to have a certain power, and that is not true. Movies tend also to use this trope/trick a lot; the moment you throw a bomb at 'the last second', the explosion that was supposed to be uber-powerful is relatively harmless, even when the distance was not all that significant.

Sammo Premium member

Depends on how high she threw the bomb. She can throw that thing high enough that it won't cause damage. Certainly if it's not as powerfull as the terrorist thought.

Plot hole: If the the parademons can smell the fear and react, they would do so when Flash is having a panic attack.

Suggested correction: The parademons are in a separate room with several hostages who are far more afraid than The Flash is, so their attention is focused elsewhere.

Flash and the others are in the very next room without any door or wall beside the parademons, not too far, and there are 10 or 12 around the space. Anyone can smell Barry's fear or at least hear them, and the hostages show less fear than Barry - he is almost paralyzed.

oswal13

I agree with the reply to the correction, I believe the entry should be reinstated and I don't get why the massive downvoting. The whole tacked-on "smell fear" business is inconsistent throughout the movie and there should be an ampler entry about it, if anything.

Video

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.

Suggested correction: Under known physics, you are correct, however, The Flash can tap into the speed force, something that transcends known physics, which therefore makes his charging of the motherbox possible.

It doesn't matter what he is "tapping into" if he is still grounding-out to the ship's bulkheads and is discharging electricity the whole time.

Charles Austin Miller

Also the bulkheads are made of Kryptonian technology, being alien in nature maybe the discharged energy reacts differently and perhaps is reflected back into the Flash at a rate so fast that is imperceptible to the human eye. Like Bruce said the mother box is science beyond anything imaginable so we have to keep our mind open to possibilities regarding its properties.

Sorry but you are incorrect. According to you Barry shouldn't be able to run at all at high speed because physics. The speed force may as well be magic, as it defies physics in multiple ways i.e friction, gaining momentum the requirement for an equal opposite force to come to a rapid stop etc. Nevermind that it's canonical that they can generate and hurl lightning bolts.

Suggested correction: He said that he can "conduct a significant electrical current." At the moment he touches the cube, you can see the bolts sucking back into him and flowing into the cube. Also..."speed force."

Continuity mistake: When Wonder Woman says "He's back" looking at the freshly resurrected shirtless Superman, the policeman by the patrol car is leaning against it differently compared to the previous line-up shot; he was lowering the hand with the radio, and he's on the contrary talking on it now. (01:13:35)

Continuity mistake: Aquaman puts Clark's body in the amniotic pool. The photo of his father falls in the water-like liquid and begins to sink, and quickly. Minutes pass with the hacking and all the discussion in between on how to power the process, but when Flash finally 'jumpstarts' the machine, a shot is dedicated to the photo that is still there in the pool, yet to be submerged. (01:10:35)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Steppenwolf sends away the parademons saying "This one is mine" to confront Wonder Woman one-on-one. She says in close-up "You overestimate yourself" and her right shoulder is clear of hair, but in the previous shot she had hair right in front of that shoulder. (00:54:55)

Continuity mistake: When Flash calls himself "a snackhole", he holds the pizza carton with the hand at its corner, then more towards the middle. (00:38:45)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Aquaman dumps the sailor that was attacked by parademons, the man has no green stains on himself, but he exhibits large ones in a close-up, not to mention that Aquaman's hand is clean in the rest of the scene other than the glass close-up (as we can see from the Snyder cut, the encounter had nothing to do with parademons in the original concept). (00:42:40)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Wonder Woman breaks through the door, the left side flies off, sliding on the floor almost all the way to the couch in the reverse shot, and is closer to WW in the next. (00:09:45)

Other mistake: The janitor, Howard, stops Dr. Stone to talk to him about the loss of his son. Look at his badge; the person on it sports a beard and sideburns and a hat, and it's "Jensen" plus initial. Later on the same janitor hears a noise inside the lab and you can see the badge picture is different and it lists the full first and last name. The first scene was a Whedon reshoot, so probably after weeks they didn't have the original prop and made another one. (00:18:55 - 00:21:15)

Continuity mistake: When Flash pushes the truck with the civilians, the kid has her left hand between Barry's, but at the first cut her hand is on the outside. (01:41:00)

Barry Allen: I eat a lot of snacks. I'm like a black hole of snacks...I'm a snackhole.

Question: If they know the mother boxes are dangerous why not destroy them? Surely they'd have figured out some way before Steppenwolf came back.

Rob245

Answer: "Surely they'd figure it out" is hardly a suitable solution. If they knew how to destroy them, they would have. They did the next best thing by hiding them in different places.
