Superman/Doomsday

Continuity mistake: After Toyman's spider slashes through the seats on the right side of the bus (from the bus' perspective), then slashes and hits the seats on the left. But in the immediately following shot, the leg of the spider busts through one of the back windows on the left side of the bus, and you can see the top of the back seats sticking up in view in perfect condition despite in the previous shot being cut in half.

Continuity mistake: After the police leave, Toyman moves his spider away from the bus and partly hangs off the building taunting the cops. It then cuts to a behind view of the spider, and suddenly it is much closer to the bus again, and is not hanging off as far. (00:36:05)

Continuity mistake: Once the police begin driving away after Toyman's threats, the camera pulls back showing Toyman's spider holding the roof of the bus, and you can see the two legs are puncturing the top of the bus. It then cuts to a front view of this and suddenly the top of the bus is without a scratch, and the shadows on the roof of the bus move further down. (00:36:00)

Continuity mistake: After hugging the money, Toyman moves his giant spider mech back on top of the school bus and then tips it over the side of the building while threatening Metro PD to back off. He is using the left side of the spider to hold the bus, and the legs on the right side of the spider to stay on the roof of the building. You can see in that shot that 4 of the right legs are on the roof behind the small wall. But after a brief moment of cutting to Toyman's face, it cuts to show a shot behind the spider before Lois opens the door and suddenly the front most of the right legs of the spider is hanging off the building. When it shows the front view of the spider again, the legs are once again all behind the wall. (00:35:45)

Continuity mistake: When Lois is sneaking up on the bus, you can see there are several pipes on the roof of the building they are on sticking up all around. But a little later when Toyman is lifting the school bus with the spider, the roof is visible behind it and the pipes are gone. (00:36:05 - 00:37:30)

Continuity mistake: In the scene following Lex shooting Tess, it cuts to Metropolis PD surrounding a building. The camera pans up to show a school bus at the top of the building partly hanging off, and it shows the wall the wheel is resting on with no damage. It cuts to a close up and suddenly there is a lot of damage and hole in the wall where the bus' front wheel is. (00:35:20)

Continuity mistake: As Tess and Lex are talking in his office about how Lex was cheated out of his winning strategy by Doomsday, the arm rests on his chair are square. But then when the camera pans back up after he shoots Tess in the face, the arm rests are now rounded and bigger. (00:35:00)

Continuity mistake: The school bus on the building has caused some damage, right under the front wheel. Moments later when Toyman appears and the goes to the top of the bus in his spider mech, there's less damage under the wheel. Also the front wheel goes from looking like a 5 point star to a 7 point star. (00:35:40)

Continuity mistake: When Toyman first appears, he walks his spider mech down the side of the building and it cuts to a close up of him saying he won't share, and begins hugging some money up to his face with both hands. It then cuts back to an exterior shot of the spider, and you see that Toyman's hands are instantly down at his controls again. (00:35:35)

Continuity mistake: Before Lex shoots Tess, you can see there are two computer monitors on his desk. In the silhouette shot when he blows her brains out, suddenly the leg of the desk is much closer to the monitor on the right. (00:34:55)

Continuity mistake: After Perry White says that Jimmy is weak and is not strong enough to hold onto his ideals, he turns around his chair and holds up his glass. It then cuts to a close up of his face just before he takes a drink and suddenly his fingers are holding the glass much higher up. (00:34:00)

Continuity mistake: After Jimmy quits the Daily Planet, Lois barges into Perry's office demanding to know why and discovers that he is drinking. One shot shows him tip up his glass and drink most of the contents, leaving only a small amount with the four ice cubes. It cuts to Lois for a moment then back to Perry as he says to not sugar coat it, and now his glass is half full, when he nearly emptied it moments before. (00:33:50)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Lois and Perry are arguing in his office, and you see his door. The handle of the door is on the right side. But 30 minutes later in the film when they are talking there again, the door handle has switched to the other side. It's most noticeable when Perry says "easy to lose sight of I guess in a world without Superman." And then takes a drink. (00:03:20 - 00:33:35)

Continuity mistake: As the camera is zooming in on the electronics shop, you can see the doorway and a welcome mat out front of it. But when the thugs break the window and start stealing TVs out of it, the doorway is barely visible, but the bottom half of it is now wall that connects the other sides, and the welcome mat has been cut down to a small little thing barely what it was. It then goes back to normal in the overhead shot. Also the building to the right of the electronics shop changes up in the overhead shot. (00:32:45)

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning of the film, you see Clark pick up and then set down a picture of his mother down by his computer towers. Then 30 minutes into the film you see Lois look across over at that same picture after Superman's death and the computer towers change in design. (00:04:30 - 00:30:45)

Continuity mistake: After the scene in the Daily Planet where Lois and Perry are talking about Clark missing and that Lois should go see friends or family, it cuts to her driving down a road by large corn fields going to Martha Kent's house. She is driving with her right hand on the top of the steering wheel and her left arm hanging out the window, but with her hand and wrist propped up on the seal. It then cuts to a different angle as the car is driving by and suddenly her left arm looks extremely weird in some animation error. It appears it is just the elbow of her arm out the window, but that it has somehow merged with the door and she has become part of the car. Also her right hand is no longer at the top of her steering wheel and her head rest on her seat is suddenly not extended up as much. (00:30:55)

Continuity mistake: After Superman's funeral, Lois is sitting in her cubicle at the Daily Planet reading a newspaper. When Perry White walks up and talks about there not being word from Clark Kent, it cuts to a shot from further back. Some of the papers on the wall behind her vanish, the pencil on her desk vanishes, the papers pinned to her bulletin board to her right change shape slightly, especially the one towards the center bottom becomes straighter instead of crooked and longer, also displaying different text. And the distance between the edge of her bulletin board and the other cubicle wall increases. (00:30:15)

Continuity mistake: At the start of the scene showing Superman's funeral, there is a yellow guard rail around the memorial stand with his coffin in front of the podium. Standing in front of the yellow rail are 13 police officers in full uniform, 7 on one side and 6 on the other. The shot cuts to the audience for a moment, and then shows the podium and memorial again from a distance shot, and suddenly all the police standing by the coffin have vanished. (00:28:10)

Continuity mistake: As Superman is emerging from the smoke after the impact, the amount of damage to his suit on his right shoulder changes between shots of him, the close up of Lois and the back to him. The damage on the chest area also changes from appearing near perfect to very jagged. And the blood dripping down from his mouth also becomes thinner. (00:26:50)

Continuity mistake: Superman grabs Doomsday and rockets upwards with him to save a little girl and to take the creature into space. When he first starts going up, Doomsday's arms are forced down at his sides, but slightly in front of him from the force. But when the shot cuts to a distance shot, suddenly Doomsday's arms are stretched up in the air like how Superman normal flies. (00:25:25)

Mistakes

In Metropolis on the bridge, Doomsday grabs a soldier and breaks his neck and skull. In that shot, the soldier's arms are inside Doomsday's hand and his hair is a light brown or gray. But then when the shot changes as Doomsday begins to throw the soldier to the side, the soldier's arms are suddenly outside of Doomsday's hand, and his hair is now black.

Trivia

After Doomsday breaks out, he jumps at the laser drill rig and punches through the driver compartment and rips out the guy inside. When he throws him, this guy cries out in the iconic Wilhelm scream.
