Iron Man 3 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Tony is in his garage injecting his arm, his chest piece is glowing brightly through his shirt, however, the very next shot when he is wiping his arm with the alcohol pad, his chest piece is suddenly turned off.


Continuity mistake: After Tony gets the armor back at the Mandarin's hideout and meets up with Rhodes, they go by boat to the harbor. On the way Tony calls the Vice President - during this scene the VP's phone changes, note the camera on the back of the phone is visible, but in another shot right after, it is a completely flat back panel.

Continuity mistake: When Tony Stark and Col. Rhodes confront the Mandarin in his chair the hammer for the Beretta is forward after Rhodes loaded a new magazine. The hammer is shown in the back position in a subsequent shot. It happens twice during this scene.


Continuity mistake: When Ellen Brandt is confronting the Police Chief of Rose Hill, TN at the bar. The weapon that is visible that Brandt takes is a semi-automatic with a single stack magazine. The weapon which she shoots has a double stack magazine.


Factual error: When the Iron Patriot armor is shot at on Air Force One, the bullets ricochet and smash a window. The windows on Air Force One are bulletproof.

Continuity mistake: Before Tony sends a holiday greeting to the Mandarin his car is pointed one way when he gets in, then the car faces the other direction.

Other mistake: When Tony's house is destroyed by the Mandarin, watch closely when Pepper is blown through the air, just before Tony attaches his suit to her - she's very obviously wearing high-heeled shoes that would make it impossible for her feet/ankles to fit correctly into the suit without them being crunched up by the suit's boots. But later on, when she gets out, if you listen, you can hear the "clicking" of her unbroken heels as she runs around.

Continuity mistake: When Tony is talking with Rhodes at the bar, his chest is not glowing.


Continuity mistake: When Stark gets trapped by the water tank he is completely soaked. When he walks back to the car with the boy he is completely dry and his hair is restyled with not enough time for this to happen.

Continuity mistake: When Tony is giving his address to the Mandarin through the media the reporter in front of him has a cell phone which changes design between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Tony tests his mark 42, the HUD shot shows his mouth is bleeding, before the armor breaks that triggers his injury.

Character mistake: Killian tell Pepper the "primary somatosensory cortex" is the pain center. However, this is a gross exaggeration someone of his knowledge would not say. One, the area handles all tactile (touch) receptions. And two, other areas of the brain handle pain, so there's not a "pain center." However, the area that lights up is also wrong, because only the right side would be stimulated since it was his left arm that was touched.


Visible crew/equipment: When the President boards Air Force One with the Iron Patriot you can see the reflection of the camera boom and crew in the two black cars in front of the plane moving to the left.

Character mistake: Pepper is in hospital with an IV line in her arm. A nurse comes in and injects a drug into the line. The problem is: The nurse doesn't kink the line above where she injects, which means the drug can go up the line and into the IV bag as well as going down the line. When a drug is ordered IV, the doctor who ordered the drug wants it to go in quickly, not slowly from the bag or upper tubing.


Continuity mistake: When Tony and Pepper are attacked by 3 missile-wielding helicopters, Tony, dressed in his metallic suit, has blood on his nose and cheeks. Problem is: The blood increases on his face, which is normal as it is still bleeding, but then it lessens. Then it gets worse again.


Factual error: At the end Tony drives an Audi R-8 e-tron, which is an electric car, and while it has a sound system to produce an artificial engine noise, it doesn't sound like what is heard.

Other mistake: Immediately before the helicopter attack on Tony's house, Maya (the "botanist") looks at the TV set, which shows a news chopper shot of the home, and says "Should we be worried about this?" It's only a moment later, when everyone looks at the screen, that a missile track appears on the screen.


Other mistake: The Miss Chattanooga Christmas Pageant should have been named "Miss Tennessee", as the pageant was made up of contestants from the various cities of Tennessee and not counties or suburbs of Chattanooga.


Continuity mistake: When Tony is creating his weapons, one shot shows the electric glove he is wearing to be designed for his left hand. Later on, when he is in the Mandarin's mansion, he attacks one of the guards with the electric glove, only now the glove is on his right hand.


Continuity mistake: When the suit starts to arrive at the bad guy's house in bits, Tony Stark is walking down a long hallway. Scene cuts to outside and his facemask arrives, but the building he is in front of isn't big enough for the hallway we just saw.
