Black Widow

Continuity mistake: During the opening scene when the family is driving down the road, a newer McDonald's can be seen on the right-hand side.

Continuity mistake: The helicopter that they use to rescue "dad" gets its windows entirely shot out. That is why the helicopter is put on autopilot so that the prison tower can be blown up. Later, everyone is sitting in the back of the helicopter talking and all the windows are intact.

Suggested correction: The windows didn't get "shot out." Yes, the side did get shot, but the bullets just went through. You even see when one of bullets goes through the front window, it only leaves a hole and the widow stays intact.

Continuity mistake: The blue car gets pushed through multiple cars and is damaged. Shortly after in the same scene, the car magically appears undamaged.

Continuity mistake: When the ordered helicopters get close, there is a set of iron stairs in one shot blocking the door. A split-second later, when the door closes the stairs are gone.

Factual error: The sisters run out of fuel for the helicopter, which is then shown slamming down on the ground and essentially destroying itself. All helicopters are capable of autorotating safely to the ground in the event the engine(s) quit. Of course, that would not have been as dramatic. (01:05:15)

Suggested correction: You may have noticed the helicopter was severely damaged, it may not have any rotating capabilities left after the fuel was gone.

I did notice it, but it did not look that any damage would prevent it from autorotation.

Perhaps the sisters (not being experienced helicopter pilots) couldn't use the autorotation properly.

OK, while that may be a possibility, if they have a helicopter pilot's license they would have had to demonstrate autorotation as part of both the curriculum and the practical exam. But listen, it's just a movie. The way they did it makes it more dramatic.

Trivia: Inside Melina's weapons vault, you can spot a mask. This is a reference to her comic book counterpart, who goes by the codename Iron Maiden.

Question: Was the post-credits sequence changed at all, given the film's delay? Without giving specifics away, this was intended to be the first appearance of a certain character, but due to changed release dates that character first appeared in one of the Marvel TV shows instead. Presumably the character featured would have had slightly more of an introduction in this film if they hadn't already been in the TV show?

Answer: I can't attest to if the end credit scene was altered, but I can say that it's been Marvel's M.O. to introduce new characters to foreshadow upcoming projects without really giving them much of an introduction. For example, Fury, Thanos, Captain Marvel, the Wasp. It seems this credit scene was meant to tease the audience for her upcoming appearance in the TV show rather than build on who they've already established her to be.
