Avengers: Endgame

Continuity mistake: In the final battle, Wasp and Ant-Man are in the van trying to get the quantum tunnel operational. We cut back to the fight and we can see Ant-Man there too, fighting in his giant form. (02:22:20 - 02:23:00)

Suggested correction: He needed to hot-wire the van. It's quite possible he could have left the van for parts (he's seen slamming a Leviathan to the ground) or to protect it. It also could have been an illusion by one of Dr. Strange's people.

Sorry but the suggested correction makes no sense. For one Dr Strange's people have no idea what Ant-Man looks like, and secondly Ant-Man would have no idea where to get parts from in the middle of a battlefield, let alone know if alien technology would be compatible. Also the time frame given when the scene plays out allows no time for him to leave the van, this is a legitimate mistake.

Dr. Strange's people don't know what Ant-Man looks like? He entered the battle with them long before they went to the van. Earth has had access to the same Leviathan parts since the original Avengers. If Toomes can make wings out of it in Spider-man Homecoming, it's possible he can figure something out. Clint had passed the glove to Black Panther before Ant-Man is seen in the background. There was plenty of time. He also could have been defending the van while they brought the glove.

There is plenty of time for Ant-Man to have left the van and returned to it. As the scenes play out, Ant-Man and Wasp are in the front of the van trying to hot wire it. The film then cuts to the battle for several minutes, as we see the passing off the gauntlet, which includes the brief shot of Giant-Man in the background. A few minutes later the film cuts back to the van and we see Scott opening the rear door of the van. So there's plenty of time for him to have gotten out of the van, saw potential trouble with the Leviathan, turned into Giant-Man to stop it while letting Hope finish activating the tunnel, and then returning to check the final settings. Now, all this raises another question that has to do with the apparent ease Giant-Man has in traversing the battlefield, as in why not just give Scott the gauntlet, have him turn into Giant-Man, take a few steps over to the van, and then shrink back down to take the stones back in time?

Continuity mistake: While Hulk eats breakfast with Cap, Nat and Scott, the crepe on the top is cut in two. In the next shot it's in one piece, then in two again. (00:38:30)

Continuity mistake: When Thanos is being questioned about where the stones are, Captain Marvel has her arm wrapped around his neck in a headlock and War Machine is holding onto his right arm. Just as Bruce goes to push Thanos over, both Captain Marvel and War Machine suddenly do not have their hands on him. There is no reason that they would have let go of him. Nor would there have been enough time for them to let go of him in between shots. (00:18:10)

Continuity mistake: When the camera is panning over the entire army on the Avengers' side for the first time, Captain America is standing in front of everyone, and his shield is intact and round again, while Thanos broke it earlier. The next time we see it, it's back to being broken.

Suggested correction: The top half of his shield was broken off. When he is standing in front of Thanos' army, you can only see the bottom, intact half.

No no, the mistake is about the wide shot where you only see Captain America really small. He has a full shield there (as he is just CGI).

Factual error: New Asgard is in Tonsberg, Norway, but was filmed in Scotland. The truck Hulk and Rocket use to get there has a UK licence plate (SW61 5PN), whereas Norwegian plates use two letters followed by 4 or 5 numbers. Plus the pizza boxes in Thor's house have a phone number in UK format (01632 960776) not Norwegian. In fact, the 01632 area code is specifically designated for fictional use in the UK. Norwegian telephone numbers use fewer digits. (00:48:50)

Suggested correction: The truck doesn't necessarily needs to be from Norway... It could be a donation to people of Asgard or they could have taken it since half the people had vanished. I'm sure they could get away with a license plate, especially with Thor by their side. About the pizzas, I can see Thor flying 2 thousand Miles to get a pizza he saw on TV.

But why would he fly that far away to get a pizza when he was depressed/upset that he let everyone down and was holed up in his place and drinking himself to oblivion? That makes no sense. Because you can "see" it - doesn't make it so. It would have to be in the script and the joke made if he actually went 2k miles.

Audio problem: When the Ancient One is explaining to Bruce that taking the Time Stone will affect their reality, there is a shot from behind the Ancient One where she says "Millions will suffer", but her mouth doesn't move when she says the line. (01:24:20)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: In the first Avengers film Steve lost his helmet after the battle and got dirty, with a damaged suit and battered face, but here while they are arresting Loki he has the helmet on and the suit is intact and clean. Can't be that he cleaned himself up, because in the Avengers post-credit scene eating shawarma (after arresting Loki), Cap's suit is still dirty from the battle. Can't be that he got changed before heading down (and why would he?) because in the shawarma scene from the first Avengers movie he's still in his damaged/dirty suit after everything.

Continuity mistake: When Thanos gets the Iron Gauntlet, he has armour on his right arm. When he fights Captain Marvel, the piece of armour disappears from one shot to another so his arms are free to put on the Gauntlet. (02:28:45)

Continuity mistake: When the Avengers are discussing where Thanos might be, Steve tells Tony that he fought him. In the shot where Tony says "Who told you that", his right hand is holding onto the robe he is wearing. The camera changes angles and his right hand is now shown touching the table. It then cuts back to Tony, where his right hand is touching the robe again. (00:10:39)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Tony takes off the Nano Arc Reactor and places it on Steve's hand, he drops to the ground. Captain Marvel is shown in the back of shot, raising her hands slightly as if she is preparing to catch him. It then cuts to a wide shot where her hands are suddenly at ease. (00:12:15)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When the Avengers return from the quantum tunnel with the stones, their order is Hulk, Tony, Steve, Clint. But seconds later this changes to Hulk, Steve, Clint then Tony. (01:55:18)

Continuity mistake: When Tony begins to walk back to his house carrying his daughter, he is holding the Iron Man helmet he made for Pepper, by the top of it. In the next shot, he is suddenly holding the side of the helmet. (00:33:55)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Thor is speaking with Valkyrie about being the new Queen of Asgard, his beard is trimmed and much shorter. In the next scene aboard the ship with the Guardians when he and Quill are arguing about who is in charge, Thor's beard is back to how long it was earlier in the film. (02:40:20 - 02:41:45)

Other mistake: Scott arrives in the park and sees hundreds of memorials listing people who were killed by Thanos. In the first close-up shot shown of one of the memorials, the name Norbert Lamey can be seen five rows from the top on the right hand side. The camera then pans to Scott walking in front of the memorial to the right of it. The name Norbert Lamey can be seen repeated on the opposite side of the memorial Scott stands in front of. (00:24:25)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When the Ancient One is showing Bruce the flow of time, a projection of the Infinity Stones are shown rotating around the flow of time she projects. Just as Bruce says "Because once we're done with the stones...", the projection of the Space Stone is shown rotating away from Bruce and more towards the Ancient One. The camera changes angles, and the Space Stone is now closer to Bruce, and is shown rotating past the same area it did in the previous shot. (01:24:30)

Continuity mistake: When Scott is explaining the Quantum Realm to Steve and Nat, he begins eating a sandwich that he is holding in his right hand. It then cuts to a different angle where the sandwich is in his left hand. (00:32:00)

Continuity mistake: In the Hulk scene at the diner, once Scott takes the picture of the kids, in the frontal shots he is holding the phone with his right hand and hands it to them, while the reverse shots don't match - egregiously noticeable when he says "I don't want a picture with them" waving an empty right hand. (00:38:05)

Continuity mistake: When Steve starts fighting 2012 Steve, he places the case containing Loki's sceptre on the ground. He then starts to run towards 2012 Steve, leaving the case far behind him. The two then start fighting hand to hand, and the case is suddenly right beside them. (01:22:30)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: While the Avengers are standing on the time machine just before the time heist, Barton promises Rocket he will bring back the ship in one piece. Rocket then says "as promises go, that was pretty lame", and has his arms folded when he says this. It then cuts to a shot of the group, and Rocket's arms are suddenly by his side. (01:06:35)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: Iron Man, Cap, Ant-Man and Hulk are shown leaping into 2012 just as the original six Avengers formed their circle. Cap then immediately begins reminding the team of their assignments. The dialogue is continuous so there is no time compression involved. Within 10 seconds of their arrival, they watch 2012 Hulk jump into a nearby street and begins smashing Chitauri and jumping on a car. However, in the original film, after the Avengers form the circle, the events that follow include Loki ordering more troops, then Cap giving orders to the rest of the team to hold them off, ending with the order for Hulk to "smash." Hulk then jumps up and starts fighting Chitauri along the sides of buildings before being knocked down into the street, where he could have presumably landed where the 2023 team sees him (the original film cuts to Thor at this point). These events in the original film take at least a minute to unfold in real time. (01:07:35)

Steve Rogers: Don't do anything stupid until I come back.
Bucky Barnes: How can I? You're taking all the stupid with you.

Answer: No, his snap simply restored all the people Thanos' snap eliminated. They discuss it before he snaps. Tony reminds him to not try to do anything other than bring the people back.

We don't know that's all he did. Considering the Ancient One's warning that removing a stone for one's universe could have disastrous affects on that universe. One would think he would return the stones.

DetectiveGadget85

She was talking about removing them from the timeline, nothing about destroying them. According to the comics when the stones are destroyed the powers they represent will be made physical again in a different way. This does not happen when they are removed completely, since the power inside (the energy) cannot be reassembled again.

lionhead

Destroying the stones almost killed Thanos. Hulk would not have been able to bring back half the universe and the stones with no further impact.

We do know. As stated in the answer, Tony and Hulk specifically discuss ONLY bringing the people back. Since it's stated in the film, we can say with certainty that's all he did.

As stated in the film, he also tried to bring Natasha back who wasn't one of the half Thanos snapped away, so while unlikely, perhaps he did try more.
