Avengers: Endgame

Thanos from 2014 is brought forwards to the present by his Nebula, who's replaced the newer version. He brings his army to earth but Bruce has already snapped the gauntlet, bringing all the dusted Avengers back, and their supporting armies. Both sides try to get the gauntlet - Captain Marvel arrives, destroys Thanos' ship, and nearly beats him, but he knocks her away using the power stone. Tony attacks Thanos, taking the stones out of the gauntlet and integrating them into his suit. Declaring "I'm Iron Man" he snaps his fingers, turning Thanos and his army to dust, but fatally injuring himself in the process, unable to handle the combined power of the stones. He gets a hero's funeral, attended by all of the surviving Avengers. Captain America goes back in time to return the stones to the point they were taken, ensuring no negative realities splinter off. We see Banner trying to bring him back, but he realises that Cap deliberately missed his chronological "exit" to come back to the present day. Bucky looks up and sees Cap sitting on a nearby bench, now a very old man - turns out he went back to the past and married Peggy. The film ends on a shot of them at home in the past, finally getting their long-awaited dance.

Continuity mistake: In the final battle, Wasp and Ant-Man are in the van trying to get the quantum tunnel operational. We cut back to the fight and we can see Ant-Man there too, fighting in his giant form.

Suggested correction: He needed to hot-wire the van. It's quite possible he could have left the van for parts (he's seen slamming a Leviathan to the ground) or to protect it. It also could have been an illusion by one of Dr. Strange's people.

Sorry but the suggested correction makes no sense. For one Dr Strange's people have no idea what Ant-Man looks like, and secondly Ant-Man would have no idea where to get parts from in the middle of a battlefield, let alone know if alien technology would be compatible. Also the time frame given when the scene plays out allows no time for him to leave the van, this is a legitimate mistake.

Dr. Strange's people don't know what Ant-Man looks like? He entered the battle with them long before they went to the van. Earth has had access to the same Leviathan parts since the original Avengers. If Toomes can make wings out of it in Spider-man Homecoming, it's possible he can figure something out. Clint had passed the glove to Black Panther before Ant-Man is seen in the background. There was plenty of time. He also could have been defending the van while they brought the glove.

There is plenty of time for Ant-Man to have left the van and returned to it. As the scenes play out, Ant-Man and Wasp are in the front of the van trying to hot wire it. The film then cuts to the battle for several minutes, as we see the passing off the gauntlet, which includes the brief shot of Giant-Man in the background. A few minutes later the film cuts back to the van and we see Scott opening the rear door of the van. So there's plenty of time for him to have gotten out of the van, saw potential trouble with the Leviathan, turned into Giant-Man to stop it while letting Hope finish activating the tunnel, and then returning to check the final settings. Now, all this raises another question that has to do with the apparent ease Giant-Man has in traversing the battlefield, as in why not just give Scott the gauntlet, have him turn into Giant-Man, take a few steps over to the van, and then shrink back down to take the stones back in time?
