Other mistake: Since Max renounced his wish, it is implied and shown that he had to give up also all the benefits he gained from his role, still he uses the Marine One presidential heli to get back to land. There's also no way he'd know where his son was, considering that in the lasso's vision he was running on a highway, and he happens to find him at the White House lawn. (02:20:00)

Deliberate mistake: Steve is not superhuman, but he could see and almost (Diana whips it out of the way first) dodge a bullet at the beginning of the car chase. (01:21:55)

Factual error: In the convoy scenes, there's a 1990 Mercedes-Benz G-Klasse.

Continuity mistake: When Max calls himself "a pretty messed up loser-guy", his hand is on his son's chest, then under the armpit at the cut. (02:21:20)

Continuity mistake: Wonder Woman loses the grip on her lasso of truth when she Tarzans her way towards the kids, but the moment she turtles up in front of the incoming escort vehicles the lasso is there on her belt. (01:25:40)

Continuity mistake: After the battle feat when she pushed a truck for hundreds of meters at cruise speed shielding herself from bullets, Wonder Woman hides with her back to another truck bed. Gal Gadot's hair is across her face, or not, depending on the shot. (01:22:40)

Factual error: When Max is driving off with the egyptian Emir's former security team, they are driving cars that have license plates with numbers and letters. In the '80s, Egyptian license plates were in a numbers only format. (01:19:20)

Continuity mistake: Barbara kicks the Dangerous Drunk one last time, and we see him fall with the feet next to the curb of the sidewalk. The man is still conscious and tries to move, seemingly to crawl forward, but we do not see him even budge, and when Leon the cultured hobo arrives mere seconds later the guy is unconscious and can't even move, but he's in the middle of the road now.

Continuity mistake: When the flashback with Asteria is shown she's got hazel or green eyes. In the post credits scene when played by Lynda Carter she's got light blue eyes.

Suggested correction: It should be noted, Lynda Carter played both parts. Those are literally Lynda Carter's eyes we see in the flashback.

Bishop73

Still doesn't explain why they are green in the flashback. Lynda Carter has blue eyes. Probably caused by a color filter.

It could be a lighting issue or the way the armor made her eyes look different, but it's not a mistake since it's the same color eyes. (There are optical illusions that make some people see one color as two different colors based on the surrounding color).

Bishop73

Continuity mistake: When Barbara reveals herself at the White House and walks towards WW telling her "I can't let you do this, Diana", her left hand is closed or with the fingers straight out. Similarly, Pedro Pascal's tie pokes out at different levels in the various shots. (01:48:50)

Deliberate mistake: When Diana and Steve visit the Mayan guru hideout, they find an issue of Pro Wrestling Illustrated with Jerry Lawler on the cover. It's the August 1984 issue though, that couldn't be there since it's still early July. The prop department knew what they were doing there though; if you look at the cover, you can see they modified it and it actually says July 1984. (01:29:40)

Other mistake: The Emir wishes his ancestral land to be returned to him and the heathens to be kept out, but the wall that magically appears has 'heathens' on both sides of it, so his wish does not seem to be fulfilled. (01:19:00)

Factual error: Past the escalator, Steve and Diana walk past some literal punks who are wearing T-shirts. Some are appropriate for the period (such as the Bad Brains one, their debut album is from 1982) but the one with the cheetah leggings is sporting a Cro-Mags T-shirt; their debut album "The Age of Quarrel" (and its artwork is on the T-shirt itself) was a September 1986 release and this unfortunately isn't Wonder Woman 1986.

Other mistake: It's amazing the guy whose body Steve is inhabiting gets into the party. Clearly it's VIP and formal dress while he's dressed in casual clothes.

Rob245

Plot hole: Wonder Woman says they can't fly commercially because Steve Trevor doesn't have a passport. Except the movie established that only Wonder Woman sees him as Steve Trevor. To the rest of the world he's still the man whose body Steve has inhabited, so there's no reason he can't use his passport.

Suggested correction: In 1989, the earliest date I could find records for, only 3% of US citizens had passports. The overwhelming likelihood is that the real man doesn't have a passport, and given they've spent time in his apartment too, looking for clothes in a montage we didn't see every second of, they clearly also looked around for other relevant information/documents.

Suggested correction: There's no reason to assume the man he is inhabiting has a passport.

Except common sense? The point is she says Steve doesn't have a passport, not thinking about the original body owner having one. Or getting one really quickly.

The percentage of American citizens with passports is quite low. It's far more likely that he would not have a passport than that he would.

Other mistake: Fireworks use heated metals to produce the various colors seen when they explode - Iron, Nickel, Cryolite, magnesium and copper filings. Flying a jet engine through exploding fireworks would cause serious damage to the engine.

Suggested correction: Diana had conjured an invisibility shield around the jet that would likely protect it from the fireworks.

Agreed, the spell does obviously do more than just make the plane invisible. When looking at the invisibility of Themyscira, the spell obviously filters out the atmosphere and only can't keep out solid objects like planes and ships.

Factual error: The video games Operation Wolf and Rampage were visible in the Family Amusement Center arcade during the opening. However, this would not be possible during the movie's 1984 setting since Rampage wasn't released until 1986 and Operation Wolf wasn't released until 1987. (00:12:48)

Factual error: While people around the world are renouncing their wishes, it appears to be daytime everywhere.

Suggested correction: That could very easily be the result of someone's wish.

Character mistake: Barbara is in her office looking for the one item they need help to identify when Diana walks in. She says "OK, item number 23." She suddenly finds it saying "here it is" and reaches in the box to grab the Dreamstone. The ticket says item #24. (00:22:18 - 00:22:50)

Other mistake: Steve Trevor can't figure out an exercise bike or an escalator but has no trouble jumping in a modern jet and knowing how to start and fly it?

5

Diana Prince: Nothing good is born from lies. And greatness is not what you think.

Trivia: At one point during the movie Wonder Woman uses her lasso to move around by riding the lightning. This is a reference to the Metallica album "Ride the lightning" which came out in 1984. (02:04:00)
