Iron Man 3

Revealing mistake: One of the Air Force One survivors is shown floating awkwardly on his stomach with his legs in the air. This was due to the floatation device used by the actor, because no unaided human would be able to be so buoyant in a pose like that. (01:37:00)

Revealing mistake: When Tony is knocked violently forwards during the test of the Mark 42 armour, he somehow arrests his fall mid-air just before propulsors in his hands actually fire, because the effects weren't perfectly synced with the wirework.

Character mistake: When Harley asks Tony what the light is coming from his chest, Tony responds "an electromagnet." Harley replies "What does it power?" An electromagnet is not a source of power. The arc reactor is the power source which powers both the electromagnet (to keep Tony safe from the shrapnel near his heart) and the Iron Man suit. (00:43:25)

Question: Why does the newspaper Harley hands Tony in the garage have the date of Dec 2013? I thought these events took place six months after New York?

Mzurich

Chosen answer: The Battle of New York was never specified to take place in 2012, we just know that the film came out then. Based on the newspaper we can assume that the battle was in June 2013, rather than some time in 2012 as many would have previously assumed.
