Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

Character mistake: One of the top most taboo things for a super hero to do is reveal any aspect of another hero's identity to someone, especially a villain. But when Flash is trapped by the gray adhesive and the other Justice League members are about to take the villains away to disarm the bombs, Flash tells Green Lantern "Hal, go", calling Green Lantern by his first name right in front of Mirror Master.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Barry is looking at the gun case in the Batcave, a cork board is visible in the background covered in raggedy playing cards. The one to the left of the center Joker card has blood on it, a lot of it around the bottom right corner of it. Later when Batman looks at the cards, the blood on that card is significantly less. There is also a card to the right of the Joker card that is torn with no blood on it. But in the close up when Batman is looking at it, that card now has a large blood spot in the center. The card symbols on the cards are also closer together, the cards above the Joker are significantly less damaged, and change from suit of hearts to a different suit. The entire board seems different. A few shots later, the cards above the Joker card are back to hearts again. (00:20:45 - 00:25:30)

The Flash: It's me you want, Thawne. You don't have to kill thousands of innocents to bring me down.
Eobard Thawne: No. No, I don't. But I choose to, knowing it will make your last moments pure agony. Goodbye.

More trivia for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

Question: In the altered timeline, Flash initially could not travel through time because there was another speedster. How was he able to travel through time in the original timeline, when Zoom was alive there as well?

Answer: Flash couldn't travel through time later in the movie not because Zoom was alive but because Zoom was also tapping into the Speed Force, preventing Flash from gathering enough of the Speed Force to break the Time Barrier. When Flash originally went back in time it's likely because Zoom was in custody, therefore not tapping into the Speed Force at that time.

Answer: Batman kills Zoom so the Flash could use the speed force.
