Avengers: Endgame

Corrected entry: When Natasha first finds Clint in Japan, and tells them there might be a way, he looks straight at her and says "Don't." He's looking her in the face in that shot, but when it cuts to her face and she asks "don't what?" you can see his face in the foreground but looking down at the ground in front of him. When it cuts back to him again, saying "don't give me hope" he's suddenly looking back up at her again. (00:57:09)

Correction: There is no mistake here, Barton is seen turning his head on both these occasions. After Barton says "Don't", when the camera changes angles to focus on Nat, if you look closely at Barton, he is still looking at her, but then turns his head to face the ground. Then when Nat says "Don't what", Barton can be seen turning his head to face Nat again. So in the following shot where he says "Don't give me hope", he is still facing her and the continuity is correct.

Casual Person

Corrected entry: Spidey could not swing around the battleground because there are no trees or buildings.

oswal13

Correction: He swings off the Leviathans, Valkyrie's horse, Wakandan ships that are flying around and also Giant-Man.

DetectiveGadget85

Corrected entry: Captain Marvel could not have found Tony and Nebula drifting in space by pure chance. And how did she get the ship to Earth before they ran out of air?

Correction: Simply because it's not shown how she did it in the film doesn't make it a mistake. This is a question.

Jason Hoffman

Correction: Rocket likely has a way of tracking the ship's location, and once Captain Marvel showed up at Avengers HQ and they found out what she was capable of, they asked her to retrieve the ship. As for how she got them back to Earth, we see in her own film that she is capable of moving at extremely fast speeds and possesses super strength. Once she found the ship, she simply used her powers to push the ship back to Earth before the air ran out.

Corrected entry: Quill wouldn't recognise Gamora at the end as they hadn't met before, reason being is because she travelled forward in time with Thanos before meeting Quill and stayed there. Regardless of Cap replacing the stones.

Correction: The movie makes it clear that changing the past doesn't change the future - that trip is just more future for the characters travelling, and/or splinters off a new timeline, rather than changing the existing one. More Back to the Future 2 with the "bad" 1985, rather than BttF 1 with the fading photograph. So Gamora leaving 2014 splits off a new timeline where she and Quill never met, but we're still in the original timeline where they did, she's just joined ours rather than changing the past.

Corrected entry: Thanos should have noticed there were no stones in the Gauntlet before his final snap attempt. When he knocks Iron-Man off he pulls his hand back, and as he adjusts the glove, he looks at the back of it. He sees it fully in the wide and he can at least see the back of the thumb in the close-up. (02:29:50)

DetectiveGadget85

Correction: He simply didn't notice. Entirely plausible under the circumstances.

Jason Hoffman

What about the fact that the power that surged through his body when he put the gauntlet on would have left his body abruptly? Fact is, he should've noticed.

At that point Thanos doesn't even know what to expect from the gauntlet, because he never used it before, so he might think that the stones are there.

Not possible, when you're looking at it. That's the only reason he would look at the back of the glove.

DetectiveGadget85

Correction: He had already had the surge of power. Stark didn't remove the glove and had no intention to. His intention was to remove the stones in a tussle while pretending to try to remove the glove. Thanos himself gave him the idea when he removed the power stone to punch capt marvel.

Corrected entry: Peggy should be around 50 years old when Steve sees her through the window in the 70s at the secret base, because she was born in 1920-21. She looks exactly the same as in the first Captain America movie and Agent Carter.

oswal13

Correction: Actually if you look closely, she has some streaks of gray in her hair and a few wrinkles on her face. Additionally, her makeup will help to make her appear a little younger.

Corrected entry: Loki escapes with the Tesseract in 2012 and didn't go back with Thor so the events in the other Thor films didn't happen as Loki was a key character in them and Thanos couldn't get that stone, regardless of Cap putting the stones back at the end.

Correction: Changing the events of the past creates a new timeline, it doesn't alter events which have already happened in the original one. The new timeline where Loki escapes with the Tesseract will likely be the basis of his upcoming solo TV show, but doesn't change anything within the MCU as we currently know it.

Corrected entry: One of the big sources of tension in the heist is the fact that they supposedly have a limited number of Pym particles, as stated by Scott Lang. So after the test run they only have enough for everyone to take one round trip through time. Cap and Tony use their return supply to go to 1970, which is why they needed to steal more particles to get back. However, Ant-Man's shrinking tech is also based on the Pym particles, and his shrinking suit seems to work without restriction in 2012. They also have enough to both shrink the Benetar in 2023 and re-grow it in 2014. So either Scott is mistaken about how many Pym particles he has, or he is lying about them. And before someone says they calculated the number of particles it would take for the shrinking during the mission before assigning them to the team members, Scott discusses the limited supply before they had any plan of what they were going to do in the past.

Vader47000

Correction: Shrinking for those more common actions would not eat up as many Pym particles as say, shrinking enough to go sub atomic, as well as controlling where you're going and doing time travel.

Quantom X Premium member

This was addressed in the post. Scott calculated all the Pym particles he had on hand and said there was enough for 1 round trip each and 2 tests. Not '1 round trip, 2 tests and an indeterminate amount of shrinking during the mission which we haven't planned yet.' Plus, he uses a whole vial in mistakenly shrinking before the test, after which he says there's enough for 1 test, not 2. So, maybe there are enough extra Pym particles to do some shrinking after they plan the mission, but this is never brought up and would seem to contradict what Scott has already said about it and what we see onscreen about how many Pym particles it takes just to shrink (though the shrinking tech has never really been consistently portrayed in any of the films featuring it). So, a justification for one perceived mistake just raises a question somewhere else. There's just something off about how the film conveys the circumstances of using the Pym particles, however it is parsed.

Vader47000

Thanos has access to technology centuries beyond Earth. It's definitely possible his crew of henchmen were able to replicate the particles.

To add to Quantom X's correction: Thanos' men reverse engineered the Pym particles to allow evil Nebula to return with the others and pull the ship through the timestream. Remember it can take as long as they want to reverse engineer it before sending evil Nebula back, nobody would notice. There were never any more particles used than what Scott had available. Either more were obtained (from Pym himself in 1970's), or more made (by Thanos' men). I agree with the original correction that the small size shrinking obviously doesn't use up as much particles as the subatomic shrinking does and that's why he could do it.

lionhead

The shrinking tech for Scott and the shrinking tech for objects are two different things, remember he has those red and blue discs that shrink and grow things and he uses the vial in the suit.

Corrected entry: The Wasp showing up at the end battle makes no sense. She didn't even know what was going on when they disappeared and came back, and Dr. Strange didn't know where or even who she was, so nobody would think about bringing her there. It's also too paradoxical for Dr. Strange to know she was needed there because he saw the future, simply because there was only 1 chance.

lionhead

Correction: I don't see the paradox. Dr. Strange saw over 14m futures - seeing the one where they won would include seeing a shrinking flying woman. Enough time passes between the "return" snap and everyone appearing for him to spread the word around every fighter in the MCU - wouldn't take too much of an effort to track her down as well.

The good guys were able to get loads of heroes together including Valkyrie on her flying horse, the Ravagers and Howard the Duck. Clearly adding Wasp wasn't a problem.

Yeah but how did Strange know where to find her? She and the other Pyms were on a random roof somewhere, only Ant-Man knew where they were and Strange couldn't have talked to him about it, not knowing him either. Didn't really have time to ask anyone or do a search. He was kinda busy rallying everyone else.

lionhead

He's Dr. Strange, so the simple answer is he used magic. A wizard who can look into the future and see over 14 million alternate versions of it would have no trouble finding anyone he wanted to.

Jason Hoffman

Corrected entry: When Tony pulls up to the lab (after the initial time travel attempt), he is driving an Audi e-tron. We hear it driving and the engine revs as he pulls up. However, Audi's e-tron line is fully electric. Therefore you wouldn't hear the car's engine.

Correction: Some countries are already introducing legislation forcing electric cars to make a sound, so people can hear them coming. Given this is 5 years in the future, it's hardly unreasonable to think that the noise is artificial. Background info for the film reveals that this was a conscious choice, with Audi engineers working on a suitable sound for the film.

Corrected entry: When Peter Parker returns to school, he is seen reuniting with Ned. If everyone returned 5 years after the snap then Ned would be 5 years older and no longer in high school. If Ned had been dusted he wouldn't have known Peter was also dusted so he wouldn't have been so relieved and happy to see Peter.

Correction: Clearly some time has passed since everyone was snapped back - funeral planning, other logistics. The fact Ned isn't any older shows he was clearly dusted with Peter, they've just not had a chance to meet up since going back to school, so of course they're happy to see each other.

Ned's reaction may have also stemmed from the fact that the last he saw of Peter was on the school bus on the field trip. So for Ned, he didn't know what happened to his friend after he left the bus. Then between that time and the snap, Ned would have learned of the battle in the city, and possibly the battle of Wakanda (if it made the news). Plus, Peter would have never returned home at the end of the day of the field trip. So even if Ned did get dusted, he'd have a memory of Peter having gone missing for a day or more.

quinnnmallory

Corrected entry: In Infinity War, the left side of Iron Man's mask was damaged fighting Thanos. In Endgame, it's the right side that is damaged when Tony records his message to Pepper.

Correction: It's not damaged, it's just not fully built. Remember, it's a nano-tech based suit - it's not really a suit so much as tiny nano-bots that he can form into whatever shape he wants, including a suit. (We in fact see him use it in various ways throughout both "Infinity War" and "Endgame.") He simply just used the nano-technology to build enough of the helmet to record his message. It's not an inconsistency.

TedStixon

Corrected entry: After Scott gets back from the quantum realm he leaves the warehouse without the van, but when he gets to the Avengers facility he has it.

oswal13

Correction: After finding Cassie, he went back and got it since he needed to get to SHIELD HQ.

jimba

Corrected entry: While Howard Stark is leaving the military base, in the background there is a white guy with black hair who resembles Loki.

oswal13

Correction: And? Just because someone resembles Loki doesn't mean that it is or was ever intended to be a reference to Loki.

LorgSkyegon

Corrected entry: When Thor and Rocket are sneaking past Loki's cell, Loki is playing with his object but in Thor: The Dark World, that was almost the same time Algrim became Kurse and caused the prison break. Plus Jane Foster never woke up, because she didn't sleep in in that sequence in the original film, and when Thor is talking with his mother, there's no sign of a battle going on outside. (01:09:20 - 01:29:45)

chauvihao

Correction: Loki can play with an object more than once, and the film never showed Jane sleeping. This does not mean she never slept at all.

Correction: We're only given the year they travel to, not the specific day and time. This is obviously before those events.

Jason Hoffman

Actually they do give the specific day as Thor tells Rocket "My mother dies today."

While we do know the day, that doesn't mean it was at the exact moment the Dark Elves attacked Asgard. It is simply earlier in the day, before Kurse escapes the dungeons.

Corrected entry: In the battle scene with Thanos the Scarlet Witch is able to destroy some of the double bladed weapon of Thanos and it is knocked to the ground showing a large semi circle portion of one of the blades is missing on it. Later Thanos throws the double bladed weapon at the van to destroy the Quantum Tunnel and it shows the weapon as now completely intact as it hurls through the air towards the back of the van.

Correction: It's not - one of the blades is snapped in half, but diagonally, so still with a clear point. As he lands on the ground after being blasted the damaged half is behind him - he swings it around and throws it, damaged end first, at the van. The only shot of it flying through the air is a wide shot from a distance with no way to tell if it's fully intact, but even then it doesn't look it.

Corrected entry: When Rocket pets Scott Lang's hair, one can see an artifact of the motion-capture performer's actual human-sized hand moving Paul Rudd's hair. As a result, Rocket's small hand moves far more hair without actually touching it. (01:04:15)

Correction: This entry is ridiculous. A full sized hand could move all the hair on his head simultaneously. Only the front bit of his hair moves, almost exactly the spot Rocket is supposed to touch. It might not be perfect but it looks quite genuine.

lionhead

The front bit moves exactly where Rocket touched it... and then a little bit more. It is especially telling where Rocket's fingers end and yet the hair inexplicably moves as if his fingers were longer than they actually were.

The hair that is rubbed is the hair that moves, nothing more. Certainly not beyond his fingers. I suspect they use a prop to stroke his hair to imitate Rocket's hand. They do it properly.

lionhead

Corrected entry: When the portals are opened you can see the Asgardian army coming through, but the Asgardian army was destroyed by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok.

Correction: They are Asgardians from New Asgard. They have had 5 years to train new soldiers.

At the beginning of Infinity War the spaceship with Asgardian refugees is intercepted by Thanos. There are a lot of dead people on the floor and the ship is completely destroyed with the power stone. It's not explained how some Asgardians escaped from the ship and reached Earth. In Endgame, new Asgard is just an small village with the survivors from the spaceship and the snap. 5 years isn't enough time to reassemble an army because most of the survivors were woman and children that escaped from the ship.

Asgardian women are perfectly capable of being fearsome warriors, and some of the children will now be young adults. After what happened to their people it's hardly beyond belief that a lot of them would be keen to become fighters to defend their fragile nation.

Jon Sandys Premium member

Correction: Actually when the Asgardians come through you only see a handful, 5 years is plenty to turn 16 year olds into 21 year old soldiers.

The Bifrost battle in Thor: Ragnarok shows ordinary Asgardian men and women fighting. They may not be elite guards but they were willing to fight.

Corrected entry: When Thanos is struck by Mjolnir thrown by Captain America for the first time, he is holding Stormbreaker in his hands and trying to kill Thor. In the next shot with Thor and Thanos before Mjolnir returns to Captain America, Thanos is holding his sword. (02:13:00)

Correction: Stormbreaker is knocked from his hand. He could have easily picked up his sword instead.

His sword would have to be right next to where Stormbreaker falls to achieve that, but as Thor is thrown around several meters after he disarms Thanos I don't see how the sword could be in the same spot they are.

Actually it seems that Thanos can summon his sword, just like Thor can summon Stormbreaker. You can see it in 02:22:34, just before Ebony Maw notices Hawkeye with the gauntlet.

Follow the action, he throws Thor in the same vicinity.

Agreed about the proximity. Thor gets thrown around a few times before he summons Stormbreaker. In retrospect, though, Cap's lucky that when he hit Thanos in the back he dropped the axe to the side instead of forward, which would have pushed the axe more into Thor's chest.

Vader47000

Thanos' sword was thrown several meters away by Thor, hooked to Stormbringer. There is simply no time for Thanos to have moved to recover the sword and come right back to standing over Thor as shown.

Corrected entry: It's impossible that Clint's cell phone is still functional after 5 years disconnected.

oswal13

Correction: Why would it be disconnected - he was still alive. Just because he was running around acting as an avenging angel doesn't mean he would have his cell phone turned off. If you mean why was his wife's cell phone was functional, two things: 1) if she didn't have the phone when she vanished Clint might have repurposed the phone though not changing his address book, such as keeping it in the house as a spare, so didn't have it disconnected, but more likely 2) it was on autopay and Clint never had a reason to have it disconnected, so in the chaos that followed the vanishing it just stayed active. To add to the second, many people cling to things of lost ones in a way of pretending they really aren't gone, so may have kept it "alive" for that reason too.

jimba

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)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

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.

DetectiveGadget85

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?
