Batman

Character mistake: The newspaper that reveals the combination of products that activates the Joker's poison has at least two grammar mistakes on the front page. The word "deodorant's" should not have had an apostrophe and the word odoreaters was spelled "odoureaters, " which has the British spelling of the word odor (Gotham City is obviously in the United States, not the UK).

Revealing mistake: After the Batmobile's pair of machine guns riddles a straight line of bullet holes through a bay door of Axis Chemicals, it drives in and eventually goes on to blow up the plant. It might seem like the bullet holes themselves would weaken the bay door enough for the Batmobile to push through. But instead - as the bay door falls to the ground - notice how a ready-made seam splits apart directly above the line of bullet holes. (01:34:15)

Continuity mistake: Right before the Batmobile is forced to park in front of a tractor's plow, it drives down the same stretch of road twice in consecutive shots (note the swerving car). (01:08:35)

Other mistake: A lady is looking / smiling straight at the camera and crew at the start of the film when a character is trying to get a cab.

Matthew Johnson

Other mistake: In the scene at the beginning, when the robbers take Harold's wallet, the robber who had the gun says "American express card" but, when he says "don't leave home without it" the subtitles say the goon on the left says it, even though you can see the goon on the right move his mouth. (01:04:30)

Tony

Continuity mistake: While Bruce is talking with Vicky at the Batcave he is clean shaven, but after he attacks Axis chemicals he has some stubble on his face.

Continuity mistake: In the shot where Batman deflects Jack Napier's gunshot in the chemical plant, you can see that the makeup around Batman's eyes is not as dark as it is for all other parts of the scene.
