Superman/Doomsday

Corrected entry: In order to defeat Doomsday, Superman launches both him and the creature into space, and then plummets back down to Earth as a meteor. Yet... Superman takes Doomsday back down right in the middle of one of the most populated cities on Earth, Metropolis. The effect of their impact being little different than if a meteor had crashed in the heart of Metropolis, causing a huge crater, making several buildings fall, completely demolishing about a half mile or more radius, and causing incalculable property damage and structural damage to all the buildings in at least a 2 mile radius of the impact. Given the height they fall from, Superman definitely had time to angle themselves away from such a densely populated area. (00:26:20)

Correction: If he wasn't fighting to keep Doomsday from escaping, of course he could have changed course. But Doomsday was fighting him the whole way down.

Superman/Doomsday mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Doomsday slams Superman down into the subway, the hole they make in the street is right in the middle of a crossing. But a minute later in the film as civilians are walking up to the hole, there are no lines anywhere around it. Moments later after Jimmy takes a picture of the hole, the shot cuts to a far angle and now the hole is next to the crosswalk lines, and in that shot the stairway entrance to the subway station also vanishes. The road also becomes much wider with more lanes, and the red truck turns around. (00:22:40 - 00:23:25)

Trivia: After Doomsday breaks out, he jumps at the laser drill rig and punches through the driver compartment and rips out the guy inside. When he throws him, this guy cries out in the iconic Wilhelm scream. (00:10:20)

More trivia for Superman/Doomsday

Question: In the film, Doomsday is described as being a machine, designed to be the ultimate warrior but could not distinguish between friend and foe, and thus exists to destroy any and all life. Is that how it was in the comic, even the machine part?

Chosen answer: When they call Doomsday a machine, they don't mean a literal machine. Just that he was built/designed. The comics were much the same. Doomsday was created by placing a baby on the most dangerous planet in the universe, and cloning that baby every time it died, forcing it to adapt. Doomsday eventually escaped this torture.
