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)

Trivia: After Tony blows off Bucky's arm, Cap picks up his shield and shields himself from Tony's blasts. At the very end of the shot, Tony is firing a beam at Cap which lands on Cap's shield and the shot begins to slow down. This moment from the shot is an homage to the cover from part 7 of the Marvel Civil War comic storyline, where Captain America and Iron Man are fighting on the front cover in the same way.

Revealing mistake: During the airport scene, after Tony tells Wanda that she hurt Vision's feelings, Tony and Hawkeye have their own banter moment. Then, when Hawkeye says, "Made you look," the next shot as the car is falling, Hawkeye is reversed; note his arm guard. (01:32:15)

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.

Trivia: The directors have previously worked on both Community and Arrested Development - both shows get nods in this movie. Jim Rash, the Dean from Community, plays an MIT faculty member at the start. More subtle is the Bluth family's stair-car from Arrested Development, seen briefly as Captain America walks onto the airport runway before the big battle with the other Avengers.

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.
