Continuity mistake: Before Hammer starts eating dessert (and thus much before the "moving spoon and cherry" continuity mistakes), there's a back angle where he dips his spoon into the dessert and starts eating. The angle cuts to a front view with the spoon laying spotless on the saucer, and Hammer saying "I'll start with dessert", and then repeating the whole previous scene as if it were the first time.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Tony's press conference is on TV in Anton Vanko's home, the dialogue exchange between Tony and Christine Everheart has more talking than that same scene in "Iron Man" at the end. In "2", Christine mentions that Tony hates body guards in the exchange, but, this is never said in the first "Iron Man".

Niksia

Continuity mistake: When Hammer breaks Ivan out of prison and they have dinner together in the aircraft hanger after, the butler fills up Ivan's glass with red wine but in the next shot both glasses (wine and water glass) are full and he has a bottle of vodka even though we don't see the butler give him the vodka or fill the water glass.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the Whiplash-Iron Man racetrack fight scene in Monaco, Whiplash has Iron Man hooked with his right hand whip and Iron Man is down on one knee. The shot switches to focus on Whiplash's face and it appears as though his left hand is forward and hooked to Iron Man. This can also be seen in the 'suitcase suit' clip.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire film, the black and white shapes in the hair of Ivan's beard are different in almost every single scene he's in.

Continuity mistake: The executive toy on Pepper's desk is moving around throughout their conversation, but the positions don't always match as the camera angle switches - keep an eye on the longer bit of metal, which is sometimes pointing upwards then is suddenly upside down in a different shot.

When his father dies and he is building his whiplash suit during the opening credits his facial scar lays on the surface of the skin trailing down his face from the outer corner of his left eye. Throughout the rest of the film it is a smaller, deeper scar about a quarter inch to the right of the original scar.

Continuity mistake: During the opening of the fight scene in Monaco, pay attention on the first racing car (the red one) that Vanko attacks. Even before he cuts the car's front spoiler off, the rear of the vehicle begins to flip over.

Continuity mistake: When Mickey Rourke is introduced to Sam Rockwell, they sit down for a rather lavish lunch in the Hammer aircraft hangar. As Sam drones on in his introductory remarks, the camera watches a waiter starting to pour red wine into the glass directly in front of Mickey Rourke. The camera cuts back to Sam, and Mickey's wineglass is already full. Camera cuts back to Mickey, and the full wineglass has moved about a foot to Mickey's right, although he hasn't touched it.
