Superman: Unbound
Superman: Unbound mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In Kandor, Superman punches a hole in the ground and picks up a large chunk of the street out of the hole, but does not move from that spot. The shot changes to the robot's perspective of him about to throw the rock and shows his feet. The ground he just punched and picked up is in perfect condition at his feet. No hole, no cracks, no sign of the damage he just made. (00:41:15)

Factual error: When Braniac's robot probe enters the atmosphere over Arizona, fighter jets attempt to shoot it down by hitting it with missiles. The pod is still going fast enough to be on fire from reentry. A missile could not have caught up to an object going that fast. (00:11:30)

Continuity mistake: Drones attack the Daily Planet. Jimmy and another guy push a desk at the drones and force them and the desk out the window with seamless precision. The next shot of the broken window shows that there is a 2 or 3 foot wall under it separating the window from the floor. The desk would have hit that wall and stopped and or crushed the robots against the wall, not magically hopped over the wall like it didn't exist. (00:48:00)

Continuity mistake: Superman punches Brainiac in the face hard just before taking Kandor from his ship. Just before this, Superman ripped the cords and pipes out of Brainac's head, and so his head is covered in a black goo liquid. When he is punched out cold, his head and face are still covered with it. A little bit later when Brainiac awakens, his face is suddenly clean. (00:43:00 - 00:44:40)

Continuity mistake: Inside Kandor, Superman attacks the drones and picks up two of them as they are pulled out back to Brainiac's ship. This takes him with them. The animation showing this has light form all around him and he starts disappearing from the feet up, bright light proceeding the vanish point. The vanish point makes it all the way up to his neck, and moving quickly. But then it cuts to his face and suddenly the vanish point is not even to his neck yet, and he has time to say "I'll come back for you. I promise" before the vanish point takes him fully. (00:41:40)

Continuity mistake: As shown in the Batttle of Kandor flashback, when Brainiac's ship begins forming the shield around the city, the shield begins forming from both above the city at the ship, and at the ground around the city going up at the same time and the two haves meeting in the middle. Then when Superman is trying to break into the ship when he found it on an alien planet, Brainiac's ship begins the same process of the shield. One shot even shows the bottom half forming and moving up under Superman. But just a shot or two later from in front of Superman, you can see the ground of the city at the edge and there is no shield there. (00:24:40)

Revealing mistake: Just after Superman and Supergirl have their talk about him going after Brainiac, it cuts to Lois at the Daily Planet on her laptop. There is a close up and you can see her fingers on the keyboard. She is typing really fast, but the animation shows her fingers just hitting the same 3 or 4 keys over and over again. (00:20:05)

Continuity mistake: During the flashback of Brainiac's attack on Kandor, the tentacles on Brainiac's ship keep changing from moving to being totally still between sequential shots. (00:17:50)

Continuity mistake: In the fight at Metropolis, every shot showing Brainiac's ship has the tentacles moving differently and at different speeds. (00:48:30)

Continuity mistake: After telling the story of Kandor, Kara blasts the Brainiac probe robot with her laser vision down its side. Smoke boils and fire sparks from the attack as Superman stops her. The next shot of the robot shows no damage from the attack. (00:19:25)

Continuity mistake: During Braniac's attack on Metropolis, a few of his drones get inside the Daily Planet and attempt to go after Lois, Jimmy, and the other guy. They quickly shut the door and prop a file cabinet against it as a barricade. The one they push against the door has just two solid drawers on it. There are two more files cabinets with 6 drawers each next to the wall. Moments later, it is shown that there are now only 2 cabinets in the room, and the two 6 drawer ones are at the door. The 2 drawer one has vanished. It also shows the window blinds going from broken to fixed. (00:49:20)
