Wonder Woman (2017)

14 mistakes

Continuity mistake: In the village scene, Diana is holding a mug of beer, looks at it, and places it on the wall beside her. In the next shot, Steve asks her to dance - she has the beer back in her hand, and puts it down a second time.


Factual error: The word "intel", used several times, is first recorded in 1961. It certainly wasn't in use in 1918.


Factual error: The plane Steve Trevor steals and later crashes into the ocean, a Fokker Eindecker E/2, would not have been in service in late 1918. The E/2 type was retired from service in early 1916. Only 42 were built and only two Eindeckers survived the war's end.


Continuity mistake: When Steve is bathing after the first fight on the island, he has a bandage on his shoulder suggesting a wound, but his shirt is not torn at the shoulder.

Continuity mistake: Just before Diana uses her bracelets to repel Antiope's attack, the sun changes between shots.


Factual error: When Steve gets dressed after bathing in the pool he zips up his fly. The film is set during the First World War. The zip was not used on clothing until 1925 and did not become common on flies until long after that.


Continuity mistake: At the end after the massive explosion on the runway, two German soldiers get up unscathed and remove their gas masks. They suddenly appeared, as no one else was there, only Diana, and they are only a few feet away from the crater.

Continuity mistake: At the end when Diana is moving through the crowd approaching the memorial wall, the Scottish sniper is behind her. In the next shot when she turns around, he is again behind her.

Continuity mistake: While Diana and Steve are lying on the boat next to each other, the space between them changes from shot to shot.


Other mistake: Field Marshal Haig is listed in the credits as Field Marshall Haig. This spelling (with two Ls) is only ever a surname, not a rank or job title.


Character mistake: Both Diana and Steve go to sleep on the sailboat at the same time. Who is making sure that they stay on course? Navigating a sailboat is vastly different than a power boat, which is why someone is always "on watch" to make sure the boat stays on course. If they're both asleep they could end up anywhere.


Character mistake: While posing as Steve's driver, Sameer refers to him as a colonel. He is actually wearing captain's epaulettes.


Character mistake: Chief says the poison gas should be flammable because it's hydrogen-based. Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, and there are plenty of non-flammable substances that contain hydrogen - the most notable of which being water.


Revealing mistake: When Diana and Steve sail from Themyscira to London, the sails on the boat just hang there, indicating that there is no wind. Sailboats need wind to move and the sails need periodic adjustment depending on from which direction the wind is coming.
