Superman/Doomsday

Continuity mistake: After Superman fails his experiment to cure cancer, Lois walks up wearing just a towel and holding a smaller towel, drying off from a warm bath. It cuts to a different angle and suddenly the parts of her hair draped over the front of her shoulders down her chest are shorter, and the ends of the hair go from a single point to being forked. Her grip on the smaller towel also changes, her hands closer together, and her mouth is suddenly open when the shot changes. (00:08:10)

Other mistake: After Clark sets down the picture of his mother, Martha, he clicks a button on his keyboard and the monitor for his computer shuts off. Only thing is the button he pressed is the one directly to the left of the Space Bar, which is the Alt button. I don't know of any computer where you press the Alt button, even in a shut down process, to shut the computer down or even just shut off the screen. (00:04:30)

Continuity mistake: Behind Clark when Perry asks him about his flight, the elevator door is seen behind him with its green design lines all over it. Then after talking to Lois, he gets in the elevator and the door closes, and now the diagonal green lines towards the top have become much thinner. (00:04:00 - 00:04:50)

Continuity mistake: At the Daily Planet, Clark picks up a picture of his mother and smiles at it before setting it back down. Between shots, the picture changes slightly, Martha's image becoming larger compared to her background. Most noticeably the window in the barn is closer to her head as well as the bush by her neck.

Continuity mistake: When Lois and Perry are arguing in his office in the beginning, you can see his many plaques on his wall. Moments later when Perry is standing in his office door way talking to Clark, you can see the same wall and corner behind him. Now there are fewer plaques and they have moved around, most noticeably the round orange one now on the other side of the corner. Also the desk with books on it under the round orange plaque vanishes. (00:03:30 - 00:04:05)

Continuity mistake: When Clark goes to pick up the blue lunch box next to his mom's picture, it shows his computer tower at his cubicle. On it above the red light, are two rows of 4 rectangles. Then it changes angles and now the first row of rectangles is thinner and more square shaped. Also between shots the extended gray space between the darker space where the rectangles are and the red light becomes thicker. (00:04:20)

Continuity mistake: After cutting through all the clone tubes in the incubation chamber, Dark Superman punches a console that controlled the clones' life support. In the close up of him hitting it, the screen he punches is red, but the screen on the left side of the console is black. It then cuts to a far shot and now the screen on the left is red like the one he punched. (00:59:30)

Superman: The Antarctic camouflages Kryptonian crystal tech far better than cacti, but next time you catch a chill, give me a holler. I'll warm you.
Lois Lane: You wouldn't use your heat vision on me, would you, Superman?
Superman: No, just the x-ray.
Lois Lane: You're bad.

More trivia for Superman/Doomsday

Question: In the film, Doomsday is described as being a machine, designed to be the ultimate warrior but could not distinguish between friend and foe, and thus exists to destroy any and all life. Is that how it was in the comic, even the machine part?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: When they call Doomsday a machine, they don't mean a literal machine. Just that he was built/designed. The comics were much the same. Doomsday was created by placing a baby on the most dangerous planet in the universe, and cloning that baby every time it died, forcing it to adapt. Doomsday eventually escaped this torture.
