Ant-Man and the Wasp

Question: A man said that after the two years of house arrest, Scott would have three years of probation. What does that probation involve?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Probation varies depending on the case, but it involves adhering to whatever conditions that is set by the court. In Scott's case it could include but not be limited to regularly reporting to a probation officer, not traveling out-of-state, avoiding certain areas, people, or activities, attending counseling or joining a support group and so on.

Answer: If you mean how did he afford to pay his bills, he makes money from his security firm.

Question: Woo said that Hank and Hope violated the accords as well, because of their tech. But they haven't done superhero stuff after the accords were signed, so how is it a violation?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: They provided Ant-Man with superhero tech without signing on to the Accords. So when Scott participated in the airport battle, Hank and Hope became guilty by association.

Question: How did Hank's wife Janet survive all those years in the quantum realm?

Rob245

Answer: Hank asks Janet a question about the energy from her hands, and she hints that the quantum realm changes you: not just adaptation but evolution (or mutation!) which gave her certain abilities which may have helped her survive. It's also hinted that she was involved with/accepted into a civilization which existed in the quantum realm and you see a city in the distance as they depart.

Question: If Pym and Janet shrunk themselves smaller than any molecules, how did they get oxygen? (02:04:20 - 02:30:00)

Answer: They may have incorporated an oxygen system into their suits that shrinks with them. Other than that, it's likely the writers didn't realise this would be an actual issue and would therefore translate into being a factual error.

Other mistake: Throughout the movie, Hank's lab in its shrunken form is constantly jostled and tossed around, but when it's restored to full size in a new location, nothing is out of place and everything still works perfectly.

Suggested correction: Given that he has prepared the lab to be shrunken and mobilized at a moment's notice, he probably thought of this ahead of time and secured everything important in place.

Perhaps he could secure some things, but there's never so much as a computer monitor out of place.

It's a fair point. I agree that some things should definitely be out of place, but given the importance of what he is working on, he would take measures to ensure that the important things wouldn't become damaged and inoperative when the lab is being moved around. We see on at least one occasion that he has ants roaming the lab, so it's possible he trained them to ensure that the Quantum Gate and any device essential to its operation are protected at all times.

In a world in which a man becomes the size of an ant, I guess any correction could be invalidated. I this case, there are any number of reasons why everything, down to paper and pens, never moves. Maybe the ants pick them all up. Maybe gravity works differently when shrunk. This means that basically any movie that uses magic or magic type technology would never have a valid mistake.

Except that I conceded that minor things should be out of place. I specifically mentioned that everything essential to the Quantum Gate's operation was most likely protected from being strewn around or damaged while the lab was mobile.
