Continuity mistake: The marker used by Barry to sign in at the jail moves between shots.


Continuity mistake: When Superman is explosively resurrected by the MotherBox, it disintegrates the clothes in which he was buried, but he's suddenly wearing what looks like track pants immediately afterwards.

New this month Suggested correction: It disintegrates most of his clothes. What he's left with are the pants he was buried in.

So, the gigantic blast vaporized his shirt, tie, jacket, shoes and even socks, but didn't affect his pants at all? Seems unlikely.

Charles Austin Miller

Well although I agree you gotta know that the obvious reason for this is that they didn't want them fighting a naked Superman. He is still wearing the same pants as he was buried in though, not suddenly wearing different pants. On the other hand it would have been more logical for Superman to be naked for a second or so, then in the next scene wearing something which he got from anywhere in the city in a split second. Unfortunately for the movie makers they show him wearing them as he shoots up from the building, and its the same pants so the plausibility gets quite lost. Its not a continuity mistake though.


Whether it's plausible or not is debatable, but the original mistake claimed his pants changed. The correction is that they're the same pants he was buried in.

Continuity mistake: Bruce's beard changes length between when he talks with Diana in the Batcave and when they are walking beside the river while Cyborg is watching them.

Suggested correction: In both scenes, Bruce has no beard, just a minimal amount of stubble, and its length does not change.

More quotes from Justice League

Question: In the first scene, who was the shadowy man on the roof who asks Batman if this is happening because Superman died? Is it the burglar he was fighting with? If so, why is he chatting with a man he just tried to shoot?

Brian Katcher

Answer: Yes, he is the burglar who was just fighting with Batman. He is chatting because meeting a parademon face to face has caused him to realise that the world is seriously in trouble. He is genuinely curious whether or not Batman can stop this threat.


Question: Bruce Wayne tells Clark that in order to get back the foreclosed Kent family farm, he bought the bank that owned it. Why didn't he just buy the house directly? It was for sale.

Brian Katcher

Answer: It was partly done as a joke. But it seems less likely that Bruce would just buy his friend a farm. What most likely happened is Bruce bought the bank and then in essence cancelled the foreclosure, turning the Kent farm back to Martha. Then Martha would continue making her mortgage payments to the bank.

Question: The last shot in "Batman v Superman" showed the soil on top of Superman's casket beginning to levitate, inferring that Superman was still alive and on the verge of bursting out of his grave. Why then, in this movie, do the other heroes have to exhume his body and use the Motherbox to bring him back to life if the former movie made it clear he wasn't actually dead?

Chosen answer: It's sort-of a crappy answer, but the truth is... like many sequels, this movie simply ret-cons and "forgets" the last few seconds of the previous film. This happens more often than you'd think. The filmmakers decided that rather than go with the notion that Superman might still be alive as implied by the ending of BvS, they'd instead add in a sequence where he's brought back to life in this one. I'm sure if you really stretched, you could also say that the dirt rising was a hint that he might be able to be brought back or wasn't beyond being saved, and that some of his power still existed somewhere.
