Avengers: Infinity War

New this month Corrected entry: When Dr Strange is first captured in new York, the cable winds up his body and wraps around his neck multiple times. After the piece of road floats up into the air with him lying on, his cape then pulls him out head first and flies him away because the cable wrapped around his neck has mysteriously disappeared.

New this month Correction: Cull Obsidian used the cable around his neck to knock Strange out, then made them retract and loosen again as he didn't want to kill him with it and they weren't necessary anymore.

Corrected entry: Just after Cull Obsidian advances on Tony, Bruce, Doctor Strange and Wong to get the Time Stone, Tony activates his nanotech Iron Man suit, and the Iron Man suit forms around his body. Just before his helmet forms around his head, there is a wide shot where he takes off his glasses, but as his he is lowering them, the glasses appear to fade out of existence. He is never shown dropping the glasses or putting them down, they just appear to have been digitally removed from his hand. (00:21:00)

Casual Person

Correction: It is possible these glasses are made of nanotech as well and they dissolve into his suit.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film Heimdall sends the Hulk to earth to warn them Thanos is on his way. When Strange finds him, he's Banner and he remembers everything. The problem is in Thor: Ragnarok Banner had been the Hulk for 2 years and had no memory of what had happened during that time. He shouldn't remember what happened with Thanos either.

Correction: We don't know enough about Banner's transformations into the Hulk to say definitively what he should or shouldn't remember. It's implied in "Thor: Ragnarok" that each of them had "one hand on the wheel" but that the Hulk was trying to completely take over, which would account for Hulk being in control for two years and Banner not remembering anything. By the time Hulk fights Thanos in this film, the Hulk had only been around for a short amount of time (a few hours at most), so it's entirely possible that Banner could remember most if not everything that happened in that timeframe.

We do know enough, in Ragnarok Bruce remembered nothing of the last 2 years because he was the Hulk. He didn't know where he was, what he was doing their or how long. There for in infinity war he shouldn't remember what happened with Thanos while he was the Hulk.

As I already mentioned, Banner states in "Thor: Ragnarok" that he and the Hulk each had "one hand on the wheel," inferring that both personalities are equal. This is why Hulk is able to recognize and have certain reactions to individuals that Banner has feelings for, such as Betty Ross and Black Widow. Banner didn't remember the two years leading up to "Thor: Ragnarok" because the Hulk wanted to completely take over and managed to successfully suppress Banner that entire time, which explains why Hulk never reverted back to Banner in that time despite moments where he would have been calm. By the time Thanos attacks the Asgardian ship, Hulk is no longer in full control, which explains why Banner was able to remember what happened.

Its entirely possible that after the events of Ragnarok, Hulk transformed back into Banner. At the start of Infinity War, Hulk is not immediately present. That could be because Banner witnesses Thanos' approach before he turns into the Hulk to fight Thanos.

Correction: At the end of Thor: Ragnarok he had returned to his form as Bruce Banner. We don't know when he transformed back into Hulk, but it was presumably after Thanos attacked the ship. Therefore Bruce would be aware of Thanos as a threat. He may not have transformed until the moment before he charged Thanos, in which case he would have heard a lot of Thanos' plan.

Yes. He would have most likely turn as soon as there was a threat. So he wouldn't know Thanos was coming to earth. Banner knew how big a threat Thanos was which he wouldn't know if he turned right away.

Corrected entry: Why are Steve Rogers and Natasha so surprised when they see Bruce? Bruce called Steve, so he already knew Bruce was going to be there and he would have told Natasha where the information came from so she would have also known.

brianjr0412

Correction: They aren't surprised to see him, it's just an awkward atmosphere between Bruce and Natasha seeing each other for the first time in a couple of years. Steve looks right at him with a fairly neutral face.

Corrected entry: Before Thor gets the axe he has no cape, but when he gets to earth he does.

Correction: As shown in at least two other films in the MCU, Thor is able to conjure his costume magically. He can "take it off" and "put it on" at will, and it will appear or disappear within seconds.

TedStixon

Correction: Yes, because getting the mystical axe regenerates both him and his costume, just like retrieving Mjolnir in the first Thor film did.

Corrected entry: Strange could easily have used his powers to cut off Thanos' arm with the gauntlet on it as he did with the giant henchmen.

oswal13

Correction: As Strange mentioned to Stark before the battle with Thanos, there was only one outcome out of over 14 million in which the heroes would be victorious. Whatever path Strange set the others on to victory involved not doing a number of things he could have tried against Thanos that seems like they should have been obvious to try.

Correction: The portals can not be opened around the limbs of people. The only way someone would get their limbs cut off is if they put their limb in the portal as it closes. Which is what Cull Obsidian (giant henchmen) does as Wong closes the portal.

Corrected entry: "Spider-Man: Homecoming" stated it was set "eight years" after the events of the first "Avengers." Yet in this film - which takes place after "Homecoming", Tony Stark mentions that it's been six years since "The Avengers" in one scene.

TedStixon

Correction: The timeline error lies with "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and not this film. I previously submitted a correction for the aforementioned film's 8-year jump and how it could fit in the timeline, given what we had been told about the timeline of events leading up to the first "Avengers" film, but after watching every MCU film leading up to "Infinity War," they do indeed make references to the first "Avengers" film taking place in 2012, so I had to retract the correction. Tony saying that it had been 6 years is correct. Co-director Joe Russo has even stated that the "8 years later" thing is incorrect.

Corrected entry: At one point early on, but after Vision has returned to his red and green robot form, the space on his forehead is missing the Mind Stone. If you look at the set photos of Vision before they used the computer animation, it becomes clear that the CGI wasn't properly completed.

Correction: I've seen the movie twice, and at no point is Vision missing the stone.

I've seen this movie a few times now and there's been a shot or two where he didn't have the stone on his forehead. I think one of the moments is when he's talking to Wanda, either in their room or when they went outside just before the attack; I would have to double-check.

Yea except this entry said he was in his robot form and missing the stone. When he was outside just before the attack, he was not in his robot form.

DetectiveGadget85

Corrected entry: Thanos already had the Infinity Gauntlet in the post-credits scene of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," which is set several years prior to this movie. Yet this film implies that the dwarfs had just recently made him the gauntlet before he almost entirely wiped them out.

TedStixon

Correction: Just because "Avengers: Age of Ultron" took place a few years prior to this movie, it doesn't mean that the post-credits scene of Thanos putting on the gauntlet doesn't take place just before the start of this movie.

Phaneron Premium member

Correction: The film does not specify when Thanos attacked the forgery. Only that Asgard did not come to their aid. Asgard had been neglecting its duty to the other realms for the last couple of years (ever since Thor left to search for Infinity Stones and Loki took over) just after Age of Ultron.
