Factual error: Martha Kent drives away from the foreclosed property. The realtor address is "Comanche, KS 66531", but that's the zip code of Riley, in Riley County. (00:06:30)

Other mistake: The janitor, Howard, stops Dr. Stone to talk to him about the loss of his son. Look at his badge; the person on it sports a beard and sideburns and a hat, and it's "Jensen" plus initial. Later on the same janitor hears a noise inside the lab and you can see the badge picture is different and it lists the full first and last name. The first scene was a Whedon reshoot, so probably after weeks they didn't have the original prop and made another one. (00:18:55 - 00:21:15)

Continuity mistake: When Flash pushes the truck with the civilians, the kid has her left hand between Barry's, but at the first cut her hand is on the outside. (01:41:00)

Continuity mistake: Flash is running to power up Superman's ship. In the wide aerial shot when he dives towards the pool (after he went past Cyborg and Aquaman with their backs turned to him) notice Diana with hair in front of both shoulders. A close-up with her and Arthur follows and her left shoulder is clear of hair. (01:12:10)

Character mistake: When the military security checks Flash's phony badge, his false name "Rowe, Wesley" replaces the name of one of the names in the list to the right, one "Choi, Wesley." The problem with this is that the last names this way are not in alphabetical order anymore, so Cyborg made in fact a rather poor fake, especially for such a supposedly super-powerful being who hacked the Bat-cave computer on the fly, on top of a much larger mistake with the date of birth listed as 11/06/10, and the movie is set in 2017.

Continuity mistake: After the underground battle with Steppenwolf when they are finally joined by Aquaman, Wonder Woman sums up the situation with "All he needs now is the Lost Box of Men." Batman replies "If he doesn't already have it" in another shot, where Diana's hair is missing in front of her shoulder. (01:01:15)

Suggested correction: Passage of time. You assume Batman responded that quickly and WW didn't fix her hair, as women tend to do.

DetectiveGadget85

I do, and I believe it is a legitimate assumption given the dynamic of the scene, rather than thinking that the hair switched place because there was am unseen, unimplied lengthy pause between her line and Batman's direct reply and that during that time she flipped a lock back without changing her stance with pendule arms between shots.

Continuity mistake: The Queen and Euboea are knocked off the horse by Steppenwolf. The Queen is face down, with the scabbard of her sword pointing up and aside of the mantle; next shot and the scabbard is not visible, just the mantle. (00:25:45)

Continuity mistake: When Barry is talking to his dad in prison, the father asks "Where do you even have the time?", and Barry is suddenly leaning with his arm to the counter instead of having that hand on his lap. (00:17:10)

Continuity mistake: Wonder Woman is on the statue on top of the Court of Justice building. She is holding the statue's sword at a different height in the two shots. (00:08:45)

Continuity mistake: The "I TRIED" sign is positioned differently against the foot of the homeless man between shots. (00:07:20)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: The woman in the doorway of the Thai Street Food store reacts differently between the two shots to the dude kicking the crates in front of her; she is clutching her bag to her torso in the first shot, holding it more casually in the second. (00:06:50)

Continuity mistake: Clark is thanking Bruce for the house. They both look in the distance at Lois and Martha; there are a couple guys fetching boxes near the carpenter, on both sides of the workbench, but they are nowhere to be seen in the new closer angle. (01:45:55)

Suggested correction: Passage of time. Movies don't always show every second in real time. Martha and Lois were approaching the steps, when the boxes were being fetched. In the close-up Lois is several steps up and Martha is just stepping on them as the guys with the boxes follow. It's also depth perception. The boxes aren't near the carpenter. You can see when Clark walks up. The boxes are actually several feet in front and to the right of the carpenter. It's also very possible in the close-up, they aren't in there.

DetectiveGadget85

I understand the caveat about the continuity in editing since they have moved away on what would amount to a couple seconds (Lois is merely on the second step), which is a hiccup some would label error in continuity already. The boxes are not right by the workbench, but still they are near as I said; let's say the person on the left who grabbed one moved to a portion of screen where he wouldn't be visible (you do see his gloved hands);the guy in red and blue should be in frame no matter what.

Audio problem: Superman uses his heat vision against Cyborg that shot at him. Cyborg deflects it and the beam destroys a patrol car in the distance, that explodes in the background without a sound. (01:14:50)

Suggested correction: There is a sound of a small explosion. Considering the distance, and we're close to the heat ray grinding on his shield, it's pretty good sound editing. We should be hearing more of the shield anyway.

DetectiveGadget85

I believe you are right and that the resonance from the shield does drown out a sound that could match the explosion in the distance! Works for me.

Other mistake: The security guard alerts Batman about Barry Allen's arrival pushing a button on his phone. The date on the phone says it's Friday 20th Jan, which is coherent with the year (2017) this version of the movie is set in, but too early for the K-pop "As if it's your last" music video playing in Flash's lair (it was a summer release). (00:16:50)

Continuity mistake: When Aquaman returns the sailor to the bar after saving him from the ocean, he drinks whiskey from a glass and notices parademon blood on his hand and the glass, in the next shot the glass is clean. (00:43:05)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce talks with Barry to joins him into the league, he shows him a paper with Barry on it and his fingers move between shots. (00:36:35)

Continuity mistake: While Bruce is on the cliff before speaking with Arthur he has his hood on, but in the immediate next shot the hood is off. (00:11:20)

Suggested correction: It's never verified that his clothes and shoes were "disintegrated." He could have removed them because they were likely tattered from blasting through the roof.

DetectiveGadget85

True, but it's semantics? Vaporized, tattered, sliced into cubes or deep fried, the crux is still that his magic pants are intact and the rest isn't. I mean, it's pretty obvious like lionhead said in his comment, why it happened; modesty reasons. Some (not me!) might consider pedantic or too obvious to point out such an event that falls generally under the suspension of disbelief category, however it's a fact.

Sammo Premium member

Suggested correction: It disintegrates most of his clothes. What he's left with are the pants he was buried in.

So, the gigantic blast vaporized his shirt, tie, jacket, shoes and even socks, but didn't affect his pants at all? Seems unlikely.

Charles Austin Miller

Well although I agree you gotta know that the obvious reason for this is that they didn't want them fighting a naked Superman. He is still wearing the same pants as he was buried in though, not suddenly wearing different pants. On the other hand it would have been more logical for Superman to be naked for a second or so, then in the next scene wearing something which he got from anywhere in the city in a split second. Unfortunately for the movie makers they show him wearing them as he shoots up from the building, and it's the same pants so the plausibility gets quite lost. It's not a continuity mistake though.

lionhead

Whether it's plausible or not is debatable, but the original mistake claimed his pants changed. The correction is that they're the same pants he was buried in.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Silas Stone is speaking with Victor, he is wearing a completely different set of clothes from what he was wearing at the lab in the scene just prior. It is implied that the scene happened immediately when coming home from the lab.

Suggested correction: He changed his lab coat for a regular jacket. That's not completely unreasonable going from work to home.

DetectiveGadget85

He wasn't wearing a lab coat, but jacket, tie, sweater vest, shirt, and luckily also pants, and he carries a raincoat. All of them are different when he is home later. That's a pretty significant difference.

Barry Allen: I eat a lot of snacks. I'm like a black hole of snacks...I'm a snackhole.

Question: Bruce Wayne tells Clark that in order to get back the foreclosed Kent family farm, he bought the bank that owned it. Why didn't he just buy the house directly? It was for sale.

Brian Katcher

Answer: It was partly done as a joke. But it seems less likely that Bruce would just buy his friend a farm. What most likely happened is Bruce bought the bank and then in essence cancelled the foreclosure, turning the Kent farm back to Martha. Then Martha would continue making her mortgage payments to the bank.

Answer: Bruce Wayne is not only rich and powerful, he's also dangerously vindictive. If you cross him or his friends, he'll pull the rug out from under you, at best, and destroy you, at worst. At the end of "Batman vs Superman," Bruce Wayne realises how horribly wrong he was about Superman; he even feels a kinship because both of their mothers were named Martha, and he was finally able to "save Martha" (something that had haunted Bruce Wayne for his entire life). I'm thinking, once Bruce Wayne discovered that Martha Kent's house was foreclosed, he acted to not merely save the farm but to punish the bank that foreclosed it. So he bought the bank and probably ruined a few financial careers in the process, out of sheer vengeance.

Charles Austin Miller

Answer: Like all billionaires, Bruce Wayne wants to make more money. It's much more lucrative to buy an entire bank, and the foreclosure would be cancelled at the same time.
