Suggested correction: The two events aren't happening in real time. It's clear Peter sees the ship before it gets close to the ground.


Other mistake: When Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Wong and Dr. Strange are discussing the infinity stone situation Banner tells Stark that Thanos has the power and space stones. How did Banner know this? He only knew about the Tessaract but not what was in it, and he could not have known about the power stone, as he was the Hulk at the time and it was never mentioned to him. (00:14:24)

Suggested correction: Banner and Hulk sometimes share memories. Hulk was lying in wait to attack Thanos and could have easily seen when Thanos displayed the Power Stone to everyone. Banner then would have learned about the Power Stone either from Strange and Wong before they found Tony, or at the same time Tony learned about the Stones.

Continuity mistake: On the spaceship, Peter is talking to Tony, and has his hair swept back with gel or similar. When he says "You can't be a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man if there's no neighbourhood", we cut to Tony then back, and Peter now has a fringe with no gel. In later shots it's back how it was before.

Question: Why doesn't anyone ever destroy the stones? What purpose do they serve other than no one person should have them?


Answer: "Doctor Strange" demonstrates that the Infinity Stones are useful in the most dire of situations, when Strange used the Time Stone to prevent Dormammu from taking over the Earth. It's also possible that some of the stones are indestructible. Wanda is able to temporarily destroy the Mind Stone by using her own powers, but the Power Stone will destroy any being that doesn't possess the strength to wield it, and the Reality Stone is shown to have a will of its own and defended itself when it bonded with Jane Foster.

Also, in the comics, if the stones are destroyed they will simply be replaced by something else or even stones again. They represent the existence of the universe and cannot be destroyed for real. Always only temporarily.
