Wonder Woman

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.

Suggested correction: Hydrogen is explosive in air at concentrations greater than about 4%.

Pure hydrogen is flammable, yes. However a chemical compound that contains hydrogen would not necessarily be explosive, or even flammable. As the original mistake stated, water contains hydrogen and is not flammable. Whilst other hydrogen-containing compounds are flammable (such as hydrocarbons), the presence of hydrogen alone is not the reason for its volatility.

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


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.
