Continuity mistake: When Johnny is walking out of the dirt bike stadium, he has his arms around two women's shoulders. The shot changes, now the two women are holding on to his arms. The shot changes again, and now his arms are free. It happens too fast for him to just let go of the women. (01:00:35)
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Fantastic is writing a problem on his chalkboard, right before the camera switches to Von Doom picking at his scar, you can see that Mr. Fantastic already wrote 4= Sxlo -4 and underlined it. When the camera goes back to Mr. Fantastic after the picking of the scar, he is now writing 4= Sxlo -4 and underlining it. (00:51:05)
Continuity mistake: Vic offers to take Sue's things to one of his condos. While he says "You'll have 'round the clock care'" he is holding dark-colored pants. The camera cuts to Susan while she says "Thank you, thats very generous." When the camera cuts back to Vic, he is now holding blue pants with a light-colored shirt wrapped around it. (00:44:25)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Vic shows Sue the world from the ship, it goes to a shot where Reed finds a problem, when he says "thats impossible it should be 7 hours", The screen show H2 9.44, the next shot it changes to 9.44, the H2 is gone. (00:11:10)
Continuity mistake: When the blind woman is leaving the pub, her seeing-eye assistant is bringing her to the door. The woman turns around to say goodbye to The Thing again, her whole body is facing him. When the shot goes to Thing's face & then back to her, she is looking over her shoulder at him. (01:05:50)
Continuity mistake: There is a boat coming into shot just as the ladder on the fire truck stops extending over the river. The boat is not seen in any other shots.
Factual error: When Reed and Sue are testing the Human Torch's powers, they claim that a temperature as high as the Human Torch's (5000 K to 6000 K) will "ignite the atmosphere and destroy all life". This is incorrect. Many experiments in the lab and on the field have produced temperatures several orders of magnitude larger than the temperature of the Human Torch on a similar scale. Nuclear explosions can generate temperatures in excess of 8000000 K, and temperatures produced by the largest X-ray generator (the Z machine) have been as high as 3700000000 K. Such tests have not ignited the atmosphere.
Continuity mistake: During the rescue scene on the bridge, just before Reed rescues the falling fireman, it shows a shot of two other firemen. one is on top of the truck while the other is hanging from the end of the ladder. as Ben is pulling the truck back on to the bridge, there are now three firemen on the ladder near the back of the truck. but as the Ben pulls the truck back on to the bridge, you can see that there are only two firemen, one still hanging from the end of the ladder and the other half way along the ladder.
