Captain America: Civil War mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Falcon's drone shoots the man with the vial, it begins to fall to the ground and Black Widow catches it. In the close-up shot, the lid is in the palm of her hand, but when she gets up the vial has turned around, with the lid now above her hand. (00:11:00)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When the winter soldier is getting away from the police in Bucharest he jumps to the next building and the sun is shining directly onto the ground. When he lands the sun has suddenly shifted and the shadow of the other building is visible. (00:47:11)

Continuity mistake: In the first Avengers briefing with the Secretary, the shot has Tony Stark sitting in the back with a wedding ring on. The shot changes to another view and Tony is sitting in the same location, but is no longer wearing a wedding ring. This continues many times within the scene.

Continuity mistake: As Captain America arrives in his car at the airport car park, he stops right next to the line dividing the spots. In the following shot, when he steps out, the car is further away from the line, more towards the center of the spot. (01:26:50)

Revealing mistake: During the face-off between Bucky, Captain America and Iron Man at the end of the film the fake snow is seen stuck to the actors after they fall down. It remains throughout the scene rather than melting as real snow would.

Continuity mistake: While Black Widow fights the two bad guys before the drone retrieves the bio hazard capsule, the sun changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when they are fighting in the chambers, Captain America destroys the right boot thruster. Later, they say it is the left, and the right one is fine. (02:04:15 - 02:05:30)

Continuity mistake: While Cap is fighting Crossbones, the items on the table behind them change between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Steve jumps onto the police truck and breaks the windshield, the glass is slightly cracked, but when Cap takes out the whole windshield it's completely smashed.

Factual error: Shortly before the EMP bomb is activated, the crate containing it is shown. "Diese Seite Oben" is painted on the box, which is a bad translation of "This side up." In Germany crates only use the word "oben" to indicate the upper side of a box.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Crossbones and the others are about to enter the hospital the sun changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence, the courtyard outside the lab is filled with bodies. Scarlet Witch pulls the gas out of the building and sends it into the sky. We then get a wide shot of the gas and in it the courtyard is completely empty of bodies, including Wanda and Falcon. (00:07:18)

Continuity mistake: While the sink is filling in the interrogation scene, the water is running over his shoulder, however when the camera shifts above, the faucet is not close enough to have water running over him. (00:25:00 - 00:27:00)

Question: As I always understood Ant-Man, he always retained the same mass, regardless of his physical size. When he reduces his size, he still retains about 160 lbs of mass, which makes him more formidable, like a 160 lb grain of sand. When he enlarges, even to gigantic size, he is still only 160 lbs. So, how can he kick vehicles around in the airport scene?

Charles Austin Miller

Chosen answer: We never get a specific explanation to what happens to him when he enlarges. Hank Pym explains to him that when he shrinks, it's the result of reducing the distance between atoms which is why he retains his original mass. However, being a giant with a mass and strength of only 160lbs would not be very advantageous in a fight, so they must have found a way for him to grow in size and strength in this situation. Ultimately, we just don't know - the movies and comics differ in a great many respects, so there's just not enough information to work with. Might technically qualify as a mistake, but it's something which could easy be solved with an in-universe answer, however scientifically dubious.
