Superman III

Continuity mistake: In the junkyard, when Clark takes the iron lid and gets out of the hole, he leans on his right. In the following shot he is coming out again and repeating the movement.

Continuity mistake: When Gus is falling from the building on his skis the sky changes colour from shot to shot.

Continuity mistake: After evil Superman makes a hole on the side of the oil tanker, he flies away and we get to see a bird's eye view of the ship. But now the hole is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Superman extinguishes the flame on the toy penguin, it looks brand new, as opposed to the worn out look it had a couple seconds before.

Continuity mistake: During the junkyard fight, the sky colour keeps changing from cloudy to sunny all the time.

Visible crew/equipment: When the evil Superman flies into the junkyard, you can plainly see the wires from the harness.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the blind man picks the painting machine, note that there are some water marks on the pavement going to the right. These are not visible in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: When Superman enters the acid storage room we have a glance at the temperature needle and can see it is way to the right; but the chemist is calm and no alerts are active. Minutes later, before the place explodes, while Superman is freezing the lake, the lights in the room turn red and the chemist freaks out, but the needle is further from the danger zone than it was when we first saw it.

Continuity mistake: The aerial view of the Grand Canyon shows Ross bending over to prepare his flying vehicle. In the next shot he is up.

Continuity mistake: When Clark is below the steel lid, the shadow he casts moves around depending on the shot.

Plot hole: The movies show that Superman can talk and live in space as normally as on earth, with no extra effort needed. Therefore, the scene of Superman choking and suffering inside a bubble with no air is totally senseless.

Other mistake: The supercomputer has the British spelling 'Defence' written on it, instead of the American 'Defense', though the movie takes place in the USA.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy takes the picture of the Stokis, he lifts his finger from the camera and raises his head. In the following angle he repeats every movement.

Continuity mistake: When the penguins are on the floor, a wide shot shows a man picking two of them, each with each hand. The close-up shows his hands empty.

Revealing mistake: At the chemical plant, while Superman is landing Jimmy Olsen, the crane that holds them in the air casts a shadow on the green truck behind.

Continuity mistake: In the bar, while bad Superman is destroying the bottles, the way they are placed and the ones that are broken or undamaged keeps changing between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Superman arrives at Pisa for the second time, the sky changes from violet to blue.

Continuity mistake: The lid that falls on Clark has a bumpy side. One of the shots shows the lid falling with the bump pointing at Clark's head. For the rest of the shots the bumpy part is on the left side.

Continuity mistake: Bad Superman punches Clark and he lands by a car door. In the next shot the door has magically moved on top of him, which makes Clark take it off of him.
